Spoon Feeding Baby Birds

Hand feeding a baby bird can be very, very dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. Which is why when people ask me about the methods of doing it, I most often say spoon feeding is a safer alternative as there is less chance of suffocating the baby bird. But everything has its pros and cons, its dangers and outcomes. However, I did want to share this video with you guys to show me spoon feeding one of my Camelot Macaws "Comet". In this video he is actually eating creamed corn. Creamed corn is great because it gets your bird to develop a taste for fresh corn kernals and corn on the cob eventually. But creamed corn can be similiar in texture and temperature as hand feeding formula and is an easy temporary "weaning" food to get them to like healthier veggies when they're older and eating on their own. You don't have to use it, I decided to for this video though.
