This chick is being partially feed by its parent. First thing in the morning it accepts my hand feeding but then it tries to hide in the nest the rest of the day. The parents will feed it peas and corn and sunflower sprout but little egg food. I especially like its two black eyes, like a bandit!
The momma bird has built a nest on the floor and laid two infertile eggs. On occasion she will feed this special chick but mostly I am feeding it! Unlike cry baby, it never cries but accepts feedings like a well bred bird!
