    hello...if the vet says the bird is ok then i also think you
    should get started now. sounds like you already have a bond
    and an appreciation for the animals plight so you are gonna
    do great i just know it. babies that have been cared for by
    parents tend to be a bit skiddish no matter how much they
    were held in the nest, but the more you work with them the
    better they get....good luck to you and your friend,jill
