    Hi Maddie
    The Nov. 2007 Bird Talk has a good article on how to tame a
    small bird. Also, see if your parents will help you find a
    local bird club. Someone in a local club may be able to
    help you first hand. Earning a birds trust for the first
    time takes some time. As far as the little babies go let
    the mom and dad bird feed them and take care of them, when
    they are eating on there own and getting active you can
    start working with them also.
    see if you can get some local help
    The above web page has a lot of good articles and some free
    e-books. The e-books are directed a younger readers
    best of luck
