But this is what I do know.
The temperature must be a steady or constant 95-98 degrees. The babies if they are not cared for the mom and dad due to bad parenting or other problems the babies will have to be pulled, put in a nursery incubator- a brooder "I've been looking at some web sites"
And the babies must be fed at least 8 to 9 times daily and you have to be extremely careful because you can injure the babies.
And yes, I did learn right after I typed it that the crop shouldn't always be full because of the food spoiling. They need to be cared for just as often if not more than a human baby.
And some books I'm hoping to find at the library are the following:
A Guide to Incubation and Handraising Parrots by Phil Digney.
A video called Hand Rearing Parrots by Rosemary Love and Robert Harvey.
Handfeeding and Raising Baby Birds by Dr. Mathew Vreindo.
Parrots: Hand Feeding and Nursery Management.
Have you heard anything about these books?
