I had one when I was a kid. I got it out of a nest just before it was able to fly. I had to force feed it for a couple of days and then it started eating on it's own. I would leave him outside during the day and when I walked out of the house, it would fly down on the ground and walk along behind me. I put it in a cage at night. I had it for about a month and came home from school one day and it was gone. I always wanted another one but never found a nest that was easy to get to and had birds the right age in it.
