Breeding & Nursery Care
Managing the avian nursery involves major time commitments and some advanced training. The current trend is for the breeder to hand-feed until the baby is fully weaned or at least requires less than two feedings per day. Maintenance of nestlings (brooding), what type of formulas, types of feeding instruments, and feeding methods are all things to take into consideration in the planning stages. Other areas to consider in your avian education are topics such as weight monitoring, potential health problems in the nursery, and weaning strategies.
