My son found a fledgling thatMy son found a fledgling that the neighbor dog was going to eat. I wasn't sure what to feed it & researched many baby bird "formulas" before developing my own. Our baby loves this recipe! First, make oatmeal powder by adding 1/2 c oats to the blender. Grind until you have a fine powder. Do this until you have made a few cups. Next, you will need to add 1 Tbsp Natural Unsweetened Applesauce, 6 raw egg yolks, 4 tsp water, and 2 tsp Hartz milk replacer for kittens in the blender on low. Mix well, adding one tsp of the oatmeal powder at a time to thicken the mixture(Approx. 16 tsp). Let stand for 5 min. It can be refrigerated & we warm it by putting a spoonful in a small cup, and then place the cup in a dish with very hot water & feed with an eyedropper. We usually play the finch song before feeding to stimulate the fledgling. It's VERY effective!
