My baby brown throated conure has stopped eating and I can't figure out why.

YES, AS TRACIE SAID, THIS IS AN EMERGENCY SITUATION, AND YOU NEED TO TAKE BIRD IN TO AN AVIAN VET IMMEDIATELY! A BABY BIRD WHO IS NOT EATING WILL DIE IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME TO WAIT ON THIS.

MOST LIKELY, BIRD HAS A BACTERIAL INFECTION AND IS SICK. THIS IS COMMON WITH BABY BIRDS, AND THEY HAVE TO BE TREATED IMMEDIATELY TO SAVE THEIR LIVES. THIS IS NO DRILL AND IS THE REAL DEAL, SO MAKE APPOINTMENT AND GO IN AS AN EMERGENCY IF THAT IS WHAT IT TAKES.

Baby conure not eating

This is an emergency, Dr B can not help with this. Please take your bird to an avian vet asap. If you need to talk to someone, call an experienced breeder and get a vet reference from them. I am sorry this is happening to you.
