Hello Sir
We have an injured kite in our lawn these days. yesterday we applied turmeric powder mixed in mustard oil on its wing .I have a feeling that this kite won't be able to fly again.If i keep it as pet what are the challenges that i may face ? Also how to approach it when it is freely sitting in lawn. Right now it can not even fly one feet high.Its been almost a week that she is in our lawn and we finally decided to approach her.Only yesterday she was in our cage. And we feed her some meat.

Regards
MJ

Answer
Hi mahreen,
These birds come under Raptors.Eagles will surely make a good pet.You will need to allot lots of time and effort to take good care of it because they require high maintenance.Make sure that you clean the eagle’s cage regularly to protect it from any diseases. If however, your pet is infected with illness which is of course unavoidable, a wise action is to always seek the help of an expert. And considering  that an eagle is not an ordinary pet, a veterinarian expertise is always of utmost importance.
