what to feed babies

What can I feed the baby gouldian, the parents threw them out of their nest, 3 died and one is left, what to feed them?

Hi Bonnie,

Very finely, even screened, bread crumbs mixed with warmed baby food vegetables hopefully will sustain them until you can get some baby bird formula. I'm guessing that you have a small syringe, but if not I have known people who use flat tooth picks to feed abandoned babies.

Good luck, Jeanie
