I need to build a little cage for 'hospitalizing' any bird for any reason. If you keep an injured/sick bird indoors in such a little thing, how can you really feed them and water them in such a smallish space? I am assuming the bird is brought INDOORS, also (but I suppose the same or similar might apply if you left the bird outdoors in the little cage............) Will one really drink from a small cup thing clothespinned to the wire, etc. or is it better to take a bird OUT of cage. But if the bird is skittish (like my Campbells are) such a one could go beserk in trying to get away (here I am thinking of doing such in a bathroom or tub....) Recently I had a bird devoured by infection that went systemic; some suggested that I bring her inside and put her in a small cage to keep her warm. The question--aside from the fact that I do NOT have a small cage (yet!)--that came to me immediately was, "Right, like nervous Marissa is gonna eat and drink in this strange cage........" Sorry to babble. But how do you feed and water an indoor 'hospitalized' bird?
