Food for Baby Birds


This is to be used for baby birds that fall from the nest.



  1. Mix well. Form into rather large pellets (the size of a raisin).
  2. Offer to birds every half hour, feeding as much as they will take each time. Mixture may be refrigerated.
  3. Offer water from medicine dropper, but very little is needed and should be given carefully to avoid aspiration into lungs causing pneumonia. It is next to impossible to overfeed.

It is illegal in most states to cage most wild baby birds, but this food may save them until they can be released.
