You can feed the baby robin several things, such as crumbled hard-boiled egg yolks, liver, canned dog food, earthworms, mealworms, bits of strawberry, blueberry, cherry, raspberry, and other fruits, and hand-feeding mixtures available at pet shops for hand-rearing baby parrots and cockatiels. Your baby robin will also need some Vitamin D3 bird vitamins. You will need to feed your baby about every 20 minutes from sunrise to sunset, robins will not need overnight feedings. Also, feed your baby with a pair of dull tweezers, or in the case of the handfeeding mixtures, a small (about 3cc) syringe, without the needle. (Obviously.) Lightly tap the baby's beak to signal feeding time, and without puncturing his throat, stick the tweezers/syringe down his throat and he should swallow it. Also, make sure he sleeps in a shoe box lined with paper towels that can be changed daily. Make sure he is very warm and away from drafts to prevent a respiratory illness. Keep handling to a minimum.
Good luck with the robin, I hope he makes it!
