I don't know what you're feeding him but I've had the best luck with dry dog kibble that has been soaked in water so that it swells and is soft and mushy. Once the bird is big enough to start hopping I move them to a fish tank with heat lamps and a heating pad underneath. Once it's starting to climb I give it some branches, and when it starts to flap, I move it to a large bird cage. I then take it into a small room (bathroom) and let him practice flying, and when he's fully feathered, eating on his own, and flying well, I move his cage outdoors to acclimate him to the sights and sounds and smells. Then I eventually open the cage door and let him come and go as he pleases. Eventually they find a family and don't come back, and those days are bitter sweet.

    Good luck with yours - it's a wonderful and rewarding experience.

    So please that Moss has opened her eyes and is gobbling down her food. This is a good sign and I hope we soon will hear more good news.

    You will now be called the Birdlady of NMP though You will be like Brooks & Jake in The Shawshank Redeption.

    Well done to Sue for caring for animals too.

    I agree. The NMP connections are invaluable in so many ways.

    Great work...keep the pictures coming. How cool would that be to have a crow randomly flying round the house. I always fancied an owl....I know someone who keeps a captive bred one. Keeps it very well with it's own aviary and free flying etc. When it was a chicky she had to cut up mice for it because it couldn't handle a whole one....sort of put me off the idea a bit.

    With me on the school run Pulisa! I tried to take a picture because she is so HUGE but it wouldn’t upload. Will try again later. We are thoroughly enjoying her and hope very much that she survives...xxx
