Jackdaw S. These birds may be easily tamed, and taught to say several words, or even sentences. They can be reared from the nest, and should be fed upon the crumbs of white bread soaked in cold water, and squeezed dry. and boiling milk added to it afterwards. Now and then you should give m a little raw meat chopped fine. The old birds will eat anything, and are very fond of nicking a raw beef bone; they also enjoy a boiled potato. You should keep one wing cut for several months, and then pull out the feathers of the wing, so as to let others grow. If the bird you have is reared from the nest, there will not be any occasion to adopt this plan.
