Finding the best food to feed a baby robin? Fruit and berries are one of the best food to feed a baby robin. Before you can give a baby robin bird fruit to eat, you must first cut up the fruits and berries into tiny bits. then, place the fruits and berries you’ve cut up on the ground for the baby robin to feed on.
Sometimes the robin mother lays egg and may not come back as the mother can die in a struggle leaving the baby robins orphaned. A bird nestling can fall from a tree. Did you find a baby Robin out in the open and you don’t know what to feed it? If you need to feed a baby Robin, there are many ways you can do that. Here are the ways in which you can give a baby robin food;
Use your hands
Feeding a baby Robin is quite easy to do, you have to get the baby feed.Before using your hands to feed a baby robin, it must be clean or you may use a glove. The baby Robin will open its mouth once it sights the feed in your hands.
In feeding a baby Robin properly, it is very important to observe proper hygiene. When a robin is fed with the hands, you can easily know when it is full or not. After a period of two weeks, baby Robins will be able to feed on their own. The parents must at first find food for their baby Robins before they can leave the nest to search for food on their own.
Use a dropper
Instead of using your hand to feed a robin bird, you can purchase a bird dropper. I think a dropper is a good tool/equipment to opt for. The droppers will suck up the food allowing the bird to eat using its beak.
Allow it to feed on its own
Another way you can feed a baby Robin is to allow it to feed on its own but you must make food like earthworms, berries or chicken food ready as they are still young. Baby Robin can only feed by itself once it has grown-up a little, only then can they handle food on their own.
Without a parent, Robins can still survive but if they have not grown up to a week it might be difficult. Although feeding is easy with a person/a parent’s help. All you have to do for the Robins to eat is to place the food on the ground making it easy to feed on their own.
