Benefits Of A Handfed Bird

The term "handfed bird" refers to a bird that has been removed from the nesting box, usually at about 3 weeks old and that is then fed by a human being until it is weaned.  This process produces a bird that is used to human beings and enjoys being handled.  A bird can be tame even though it isn't handfed, but it usually does not enjoy being handled as much as a handfed bird or in the same way.  Most handfed birds actually enjoy being cuddled.  As a general rule, handfed birds make excellent pets and are definitely worth the investment.
