My girls brought in some kildee eggs and one hatched today. How do you care for baby kildee?
Pardon my ignorance here, but what is a Kildee?
It is a bird.
They need to be in some sort of box that you can suspend a heat lamp over (like a brooder). Do not put any grass in with them as it tends to suck away the heat. They need to eat mealworms and/or blood worms chopped up in a small dish of water or you can buy the frozen cubes and drop one in the dish. They are very sensitive when it comes to heat apparently. This all came from my daughter who is the Head Trainer at our wildlife rehab centre. Have a look at their website. www.salthaven.org
If you look under the "Released Patients" section, I think there is a story about some kildeer that we got in one year. Good Luck
Yes, there is a Kildeer story. I just had a look.
Thanks! I have it in a box with a heat lamp pn it, but I did not know what to feed it!
How is your kildeer? Did anymore hatch?
