    There is a baby dove right in front of my front door laying on my deck. Mom and Dad aren't far away, and I don't want to interfere, but it is in a very inconvenient location. [​IMG]

    Has the baby dove moved by now? [​IMG] to those that have lost or caring for sick animals. We had a cornish cross but she was taking by a opossum before she was 6 months old

    The last hatching eggs I got (due to start hatch tomorrow under broody), the folks used a disposable diapers to pack all around an inner box. That was unique! And re-usable :D

    The dove has moved all over the deck and is in my landscaping now. I put some water and seed out, but its pretty small. All feathered out and can hop around. I dont see the parents anymore. I ushered it to my hostas for shade. It was laying in the sun.

    It was probably just sunning itself. They like to sun bath too. If it all feathered out then it is learning how to be on it's own. They leave the nest around 2 weeks of age and are on their own when they are a month old.

    I don't free range them because I just don't want to lose them to hawks especially since out of four roosters only one is a good look-out. Though I think I will if I get guinea fowl. I just hope I can keep Curly and Lola alive until then (probably wont get any till next year). Also I have been rationalizing them on feed because feed prices been rising gradly, but now I will do it for them (the other hens are going to be mad now :) ) Thank you everyone very much!

    Okay. It's under my hostas. I gave it some water in an eye dropper without touching it. It was really hot. Hopefully it does okay. I didn't want to bring it inside. I left a bowl of water and some seed out for it. This isn't it, but it looks just like this pic...

    Actually this may sound crazy, but you actually can touch baby wild birds. The parents won't abandon it, and are very devoted to there young. So just in case if it comes down to it. Thought I would let you know :)
