ring WIRES they can direct you to someone that will know what to do
they are the professionals and the best ones to ask
in the mean time keep it in a dark warm place so it doesnt stress too much


OH!! welcome2.gif = I forgot to say that first :oops: :oops:

Thanks I rang the rspca and they put me in touch with a carer who helped with what to do and feed him. They are picking him up today. You were right they also said about a dark warm place to keep him

Thanks for the help all the same

We have a 4 year old maggie named Tom he's got free range of the place even inside the house and he keeps the hawks away from the other birds which is a bonus

Do you need a permit for a pet that was found as a baby and raised?

Would have to talk to your shire office as all are different; we've never kept them caged as such so they've never been counted as pets just a release project.
