The main cost involved in raising these eaglets is FOOD - lots of it. They are big birds and need a lot of high quality food to grown and develop muscles and feathers well.
The eaglets are fed a range of foods including rats, quail, salmon, venison and beef.
The salmon and beef are mostly donated and the venison is from road-kill deer, but we have to buy the rats and quail. They eat the equivalent of three rats a day at at $2 apiece for around seven months (rats from the wild can't be used since there isn't anyway of knowing what sort of environment they come from). And quail is even more expensive!
Please help out if you can - even a buck or two.
