Customer Question
They left the nest...

They left the nest today. I was going to p ut them in a small cage but decided on a 2and half gallon tank because that is what I had. I have 3 of them and the third still has some down on it. I havent seen them eat so I don't know if I should have taken them away from their father

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the bird's name and age?

They are 3 chicks that left the nest today

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the bird?

You are not the vet?
