These birds are already well developed when they hatch, and can run around following their mother and peck at their own food. You need to keep their cage or enclosure clean and make sure they always have food and water. You can look after these birds in your own home even if you are out for most of the day. When they are small they need to be kept warm so they will need to be indoors or in an outbuilding with electricity. When they are older they will need a run or pen outside, or be allowed to exercise in an enclosed garden.
These birds are born helpless and almost naked. They soon open their eyes and begin to grow feathers but they remain in a nest and must have food placed into their beak when they gape. They need to be fed around every 30 minutes from dawn until dusk so you will need to be home most of the time if if you want to rear these babies.
