I found a baby magpie in my backyard; his parents had abandoned him because of other chicks. I tried to keep him in the nest, but everytime they pushed him out of nest and I finally brought him inside.
I have kept him for a week and half; I feed him crickets, earthworms, rice, etc. But he does not eat on his own. How to train him to be independent? Secondly, he is learning to fly, looks strong enough, can fly 4-5 feet (120-150 cm) max. When and how to leave him in open world?
