Question

How much should I feed a baby cuckoo


Hello everyone, I'm new here, just registered. I need help with this baby cuckoo I found at my home 3 days ago, don't know how it got there. Based on the info I found on internet, its a female baby cuckoo, the type is called Asian Koel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_Koel
I've been feeding it with fruits like mangoes and grapes. It doesn't seem to be hurt or anything and is doing great. What I need to know is how much and how frequently should I feed it. I was hand-feeding it, but it seems to be able to eat from a plate too. (Not quite a baby then??) It can't fly much just hops about.. My camera's not working so I've attached a picture I took using my cellphones VGA camera, wont be very clear, but might give an idea about its size.. It's such a cute little darling!!!

It seem's about 3 to 4 weeks old, I'm not really sure. If it's eating by it's self feed it probley 3 times a day, morning, lunch and dinner. Also make sure it has plenty of water. If your going to release it back into the wild (probley best choice if it's not hurt) change the diet slowly to insects but also give it a little bit of fruit. I'm not an expert at this but I do own my own pigeons.

Thanks alot for your advice, she's long grown and gone, I let her go when she could fly well, it's really hard to let them go..

Yeah I know, it's always quite hard to let go of them when you have looked after them for long time.

The thread you have posted in is 3 years old.
Also I don't have any idea about cuckoo, may be someone else can see and reply when you post in your own thread.
I will search something for you online, if I get some info I will post there in.
Thanks.

Please read and remember while going to vets and don't let the vet euthanize your bird:
1)when you go to a vet, tell him/her that the bird is ALWAYS your pet, (unless you know the vet and know they will not euthanize) 2)You STAY with the bird, even while they are taking samples for tests or whatever 3) You NEVER walk away and leave the bird with vet. Else... they may just Euthanize it.
