Clumsy starling nestlings (1 Viewer)


New member
Neighbor day 1- found a starling egg
Day 2 hatchling found on the barn floor dead
Day 4 nestling found on the barn floor alive
(I crawled up into the hay stacks in the barn couldnt return to nest, i couldnt even find it. found an eaten bird couldnt identify) took it home to feed
Day 6 two others fell from the nest ( one is not moving with its head tilted to the side almost fully feathered) (second is barely feathered) she put them in a bucket with dry grass. The smallest of the two is sneezing and barely making a sound im worried about internal bleeding. I'm working with a rehabilitator to help with dietary needs to the best of my ability, baby 1 is doing amazing and is well on its way.
Any advice on possible injuries to my near fledgling friend would be great (again not a fledgling yet) also we have a ton of barn cats around.
