I found a month ago a baby dove (laughing dove) and i took care of it. i fed him baby food that my vet told me, and gradually made it more think and insert it some small grains like millets. he really grew up and he looks like an adult now, and flies great, but he is having trouble with picking the grains. i give them to him in my hand and he doesnt seem to notice them at first, and then he tries to pick them with his beak and most of the time they just fall and he gives up. he wants to be released from the cage but i dont know if he will survive if he doesnt know how to eat without his milk formula. how to teach him how to eat on his own? and what about water?
