Interesting cockatoo story need help please
Hi, aprox a month ago I came home late one night and saw a cockatoo sitting on my neighbours letter box. I went over to ittosee if itwas okay. It looked ok and didnt move so i put my hand out to it and it came to me. It looked smaller than the onces in our area. We kept it inside our house over night as I didnt want a cat to get it.
I took it to a vet th next morning and she told me it was VERY tame and young. After examining it she said it had bird ans feather virus an that there are 2 options either she will put it to sleep as its a wild bird or I can keep it. Being the huge animal lover that I am I have kept it. To our suprise th next morning the cockatoo was screaching a lot and so were the ones outside our house. I put the baby cockatoo outside on our balcony on top of its cage and wow 2 much larger cockatoos came over next to it an baby started crying an what we think are its parents fed it!
Everyday after for a few weeks now thy havebeen coming I get wokenup every morning by babyto be put outside to call back at its parents to be fed by them. The past couple of days only one parent has been coming andnot feeding it. Baby is thin as I cn feel it chest bone :-( i must add baby tries to fly to its parents butit cant fly it has no back tail feathers.
I need to know how to feed itand fatten it up we dont want it to die. Can i feed it some type of baby bird formula by a suringe or something as itsvery tame? Thanks very much
