Bulbul 3 days old, found on the road .I have fed and taken care of him. It is a male Bulbul.
The feathers grow around 3mm each day. Note how little an area that the feathers actually grow from .The bird doesn't get more feathers, they just grow bigger so they can cover the whole body. This chick is fed up on Fruit Rice and Flies. When it was smaller I only fed it flies,it needed to eat each 5 minutes! The flies I catch by holding a transparent sandwich plastic bag over the fly and it will fly into the bag. You can bring flies by letting a piece of meat rut outside! When the bird grows older it has brown feathers on the head. It looses them after 2-3 weeks and grow black feathers instead. My bird is Tame but I let it fly in and out as it like. It comes immediately when I call it"s name.
