Orphaned Purple Finch babies??
« on: April 29, 2009, 05:03:05 PM »
We have a nest of purple finches on our house and while the babies are still alive, we haven't seen momma or papa in a few days.  Should we take the nest down and nurse the babies?  And if so, how do we take care of them?  I have rats.. I have no idea how to care for baby birds!  They're very young, they don't have feathers yet, just sparse fuzz.

Thank you so much!!
Believe in the healing power of rattie kisses!  (Loved by Judah, Noah, Elijah, and Poppy (the reigning trophy holdin' squishy popcornin'  rattin' monkey boy) :)
