Nothing else came through. They appear to be Mourning Dove Hatchlings, who lost the mother and father to preditors. My wife and daughter decided to take matters into their own hands. The fleglings appear to be one or two weeks old. I would like to know, without sending them to a stranger at a rehad location, how to best care for them. So far the last two days they have been eating the food formula at Pet Co. Is it a good enough product to raise them on. Should they be kept at a particular temperature and how long do they need to mature. I have searched the webb and I am getting mixed suggestions on everything. I decided to ask Just Answer to see if a real "expert" could shed some light on the matter. Thank you.
