Hand feeding a clutch of Congo African Grey Parrots. The trio range in age from 34 days, 32 days and 29 days old and weigh 358 grams, 342 grams, and 268 grams, respectively. They are babies of Gonzo and Camilla, one of our wonderful breeder pairs at Beaker’s Aviary. The voices in the background are our pet Greys talking and chatting.
This video is posted since many people want to see what is involved when we feed our babies. It is NOT meant as a teaching method for you to learn how to do it.
Do NOT try this at home. Get proper training in hand-feeding baby birds. What you don’t see in the video is years of experience in knowing when to feed, how much to feed, and how to respond to issues that might come up. Too many birds are injured or killed from improper feeding. Buy your bird fully weaned and save your baby the danger of inexperienced hand feeding.
