General Care of Crows and Ravens
Feeding these crows is not too
difficult, a base diet of quality dog food, adding fruit, pasta,
bread, cheese, boiled eggs and cooked meats for variety seems to
As far as cage size goes the
bigger the better. Indoor and outdoor aviaries can be utilized.
Outdoor aviaries constructed using vinyl coated poultry wire are
especially nice. The black coating on the wire allows you to look
at the bird and not the wire. The wire is also rustproof and gentle
on the birds feathers should they choose to land on it. Remember
this is not a parrot and tall skinny parrot cages are not suitable
for crows. Crows and Ravens are the largest of the perching
birds and like to hop from perch to perch. Design your indoor pens
with this in mind (longer is better).
Our babies are shipped to
their new homes wearing jesses (little straps on there legs so you
can snap a leash on). This allows you to take your bird out for
walks without clipping his/her wings. The leash can be an important
training tool. When a young Crow or Raven grows up wearing jesses
they become part of them and are easily accepted by the bird.
Putting jesses on an older corvid can be quite stressful. In the
case of older Ravens it borders on cruelty. They can peck their
legs bloody trying to get them off. Getting a handfed bird wearing
jesses already is a giant step towards having a well adjusted pet.
These birds are big, bold, and extremely
intelligent .They require a lot of stimulation and attention. If
you have the time to put into it, you will get a memorable companion
of a lifetime.
