first bird died, hand feeding new bird
I recently purchased a sun conore and it lived less than 24 hours and the breeder said she would replace it. However, her replacement bird doesn't even have all his feathers and I am guessing it is less than 2 months old. I feed this precious bird 15 - 20 cc of bird formula every 8 hours with a syringe.
I am an RN but I know nothing about baby birds. It is very sweet and cuddles up in my hand. I need to know what to expect as far as his stool is concerned (will it be formed or watery) and when do I introduce water and other food. Please educate me on the care of this precious bird that I have fell in love with. Thanks so much for any advise that you are willing to share with me.
