Handfeeding a baby Mynah.
I’ve a few questions regarding handfeeding baby mynah.
It was rescued and passed to us, but we’re quite new to this, and need some guidance.
1) It has been with us for a week now. Not sure how old it is, but it’s starting to fly (and seems to have quite complete feathers). The problem is, it always try to stand on our heads. I’m not a fan of it so I’ll move away but my parents always let her do it. Why do mynah try to land on our heads? Is it ok to let her?
2) She stop eating as much. More like she stop at like 2-3 feeds. (and its just a very small portions. (estimated just 1-2mm by 1-2mm) and we feed her about 1-1.5hrs apart or when she chips in her “hunger tone”.
3) As we see the mynah birds in our country eating all sorts of leftovers, we actually feed it with food we eat. (Including but very little, boiled meat, cooked rice, cooked oatmeal, carrots, papaya, apple, fried noodles, berries, cherries…etc) Is it wrong? Should we get pet food for mynahs?
Thank you for taking your time to reading this. Hope to hear from you soon. Have a nice day!
