    Urgent Does a wild runt have a chance?

    There's a nest of three or four house sparrows in my power box, and one of them is literally half the size of the others. What's the chance of survival do you think? Would it be wrong to help it?

    Baby cockatiel constantly 'crying'

    Ok, I've included this in a post on the nursery forum a few weeks back, but I thought I'd put it here as well. I got Pearl at around 4 weeks old, 3 weeks ago, and from around day three she hasn't stopped making baby noises. While I think that's normal, she does it constantly. And very loudly...

    Baby Caique Quaking

    I don't have much experience with baby birds but am wondering if when he's quaking and kinda squawking because he's hungry?
