About Baby Parrot
It is often seen that people want to
rear a baby parrot. The reason being that if baby parrots
are reared then they bond closer to people and become
friendlier with people. But then before rearing a baby
parrot there are some things that should be kept in
mind and these are:
- The time to rear
- Keeping of the babies
- Feeding the babies
- Problems of babies
The time to rear
Often the parrots are reared right from the egg and sometimes
after first two or three weeks. Those which are reared since
the time of eggs they have to do the tough task of feeding
the chick in that initial phase too and therefore it is better
to rear the chicks after two or three weeks. This is because
these chicks can be reared easily and can bond well with foster
Keeping of the babies
It is important to take care of the
heating of the place where the chicks are reared as
well as the humidity and the hygiene. It is best to
have special brooders but then if that is not possible
then a fish tank fitted with a lid can be a suitable
replacement. The temperature should be initially 33-35
degree Celsius for day old chicks and then it should
be reduced by 1-2 degrees every week. The heat should
be more reduced if the chicks get reddened and are found
panting. The humidity should be about 30%-50%.
Feeding the babies
It is always better to critically assess the chicks before
starting homemade diets for them. This is because diet of
each baby parrot is different and that is why it is better
to go for commercial diets which are easy to prepare and are
always well balanced. It is better to try few of these diets
and then pick the best suitable one.
Problems of babies
You can feel that there are some problems with the babies
when you see the signs such as:
- Losing weight and no gain in weight
- Oversized head, abnormal feathers and thin toes
- Not growing as per the weight gain charts
- Change in the skin colors
- Vomiting or any significant change in droppings
The moment these signs appear you should go for a check up
of the parrots immediately.
