I found a baby bird that was injured under the nest and ants were trying to eat it. What can I do to help it?
I put it in a box with old shorts, and a heating pad.

I've been keeping him in my screened in porch and been feeding him soft dog food, found out he is a mocking bird.

So I checked what the dog food had in it and it said chicken! I didn't mean to feed his cousins to him! Lol:p

2 days ago we thought he was going to die, now he is lively always hungry and figured out how to move from one side of the cage to the other with using his wing so he doesn't fall over!:)

No, we have a carpet that we folded up, where We folded it up there was a little pace where he could jump up.

Wax worms or small, loaded crickets would be best.
My wife and I saved a bird a while ago. That thing had to eat like every 3 hours and crapped like a horse.
Never again.
