Wild Birds Wild baby bird question?

Question by Carebear: Wild baby bird question?
Ok so yesterday i was sitting in art class and these 2 little girls cam and took me outside were there was a baby bird so after school i took it and another one i found home because i was worried the idiots at my school would kill them. and then today i found another one in the same spot. they are not old eneough to learn how to fly yet are they trying to kill themselves?? and I have been feeding them mushy dog food out of a syringe and they are doing well but how much should i be feeding them? normally i have been giving them 4 cc’s is that enough? and how often should i feed them 1 almost has all his feathers, 1 has some/most of his feathers and the other one is just getting his in. note they were all found in the same place. and i would like to know what kind of bird they are they have really long legs like 1 in they are very big for being babies and their beaks are large.

My questions:
how much to feed them?
how often?
do you think i was right in taking them??

Additional Details
i found them at my school and the other thing is i cant seem to find their crop?! i have raised baby birds before and this has never happened oh and they are wild
@ bird girl i know they arent ready to fly yet all their feathers are in but it still has those casing on it i guess i should have been more descriptive and they can barely walk it more like try to walk then they trip over their feet and fall over

If the bird is fully feathered, it is most likely a fledgling and has left the nest on it’s own and it’s parents are caring for it. It is normal for birds to leave the nest before they can fly. You need to replace it where you found it, preferably in a scrub or tree so it is relatively safe from predators, and the parents should come back to feed it. If it is unfeathered, then look for a nest and if you can find it, replace it into the nest. Do not worry about your scent being on the chick as birds have a very poorly developed sense of smell and will not reject a baby that has been touched. If you cannot find a nest, get the bird to a local wildlife rehab for it’s best chance of survival. Also, keep in mind, it is illegal for you to try and raise this bird on your own. All birds in the U.S. are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Look for a rehab here:
