Re: Donna and tornadoes/OKLA storms


Well...you can cut an earth worm up into little sections and feed it to the
bird which is what I did this morning (eeeuuuwwww...but a necessary evil). 
But on my lunch hour I went and bought some bird "formula" which is a powder
you mix with water and feed to them, like grits or something thinner.  They
have to have the carbs and the protein...straight worms would be too much
protien.  The mother bird will eat grain, digest it, then regurgitate it for
the baby (which is what this formula is like).  I hand fed baby parrots...so
it's the same thing.  AND - when I got back from lunch, to feed it, I opened
the lid and it came FLYING OUT!  So - it went from near death...to flying in
about 6 hours.  Amazing stuff.  I really thought it was a goner.  I'll end up
releasing it in a few days. I'll watch it to see if it is eating on its own. 
I'll put live mealy worms in there and seed. We are supposed to have rain for
the next 3 days and I think it's
 had ENOUGH of that for awhile.  Pour thing looked drowned this morning.
And
right now...its chirping - loudly - and I'm gonna get busted if I don't get it
to quiet down.  Feeding time again...be right back.

Jesse - you always go the extra mile.
I thought mama birds ate the food first
and the regurgitated into the 
babies' mouths.  Or is he big enough to eat his
own worms?
And how are you going to teach him to fly?
