    I have a new born dove. It was born on 04/19. The mom and dad have been feeding it and it is growing in size.

    It only rarely opens its eyes. The main concern I have is that is still not standing up on its own and is still crawling around the nest.

    When can I expect it to stand up and walk around?

    I fed it water from my hand and it took a few sips. I am really concerned about it fending for itself.
