    Re: parents feeding baby wont eat soft food

    Yes, your baby can digest seeds. When parents of baby birds feed their young, they take the seeds into their crop, and the seeds get soften up by the fluids in their crop. The baby will definitely be able to digest the food. In fact, I would imagine the parents will go for the seeds before the soft foods, because that is just a natural instinct. It really is neat to watch how the parents of baby birds work to keep those babies feed and alive and growing. Hope all works out for you. We love pics here, so when the baby gets bigger, post some pics of your little flock. Good luck!

    Re: parents feeding baby wont eat soft food

    thankyou so much! I was very worried...the baby is 3 days old and is adorable.the parents are very protective,even to me as they are mine. I have another question if you would be so kind to answer it for me.
    how often should the baby be pooping?
