Describe the diet of a captive bird of prey
Birds of prey are carnivores. Various types of prey include: day old chicks, 3-4 week old chickens and rodents. For larger species, e.g. vultures, we can offer rabbits and hares. Prey can be offered fresh or frozen (defrosted) but they must be dead as it illegal to offer live animals as food in the UK. Food should be offered once a day or twice a day in small species.
