    Hello my name is Stephanie and we are going to be starting a little chicken coop, but a baby black bird sorta dropped into our lap and I need to clear up a few questions. If it was a kitten puppy mammal of any kind I would have it made with my health back ground, but I think I am flunking at my first fowl emergency and we dont even have our chickens yet

    It looks to be almost ready to fly and the poor think has skinned joints, scratches and won't eat the egg yolk protein mix I found earlier on this sight. Looking for any idea's to bring him through to freedom, please

    Thank You, Stephanie

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Sounds like it could be trying to fledge. I would try to feed it some grubs of some kind with tweezers. Just try to mimic its parents. I'm one expert on this but just going through on what I have seen.

    Good luck with the little bird :fl
