You said your bird is around animals outside his cage. If your bird is outside, make sure you bring him in permanently. Birds cannot live outside in their cages because of mice, rats, cats, other nasty birds and so on not to mention bugs of all descriptions.

Your bird needs a clean area made for him inside your home. Right now, he needs to go back to the Avian vet to be checked. You have to give ALL the medicine your Avian vet has prescribed because a few doses and then quitting will NOT GET YOUR BIRD WELL.

A sick bird DOES NOT NEED TO BE OUTSIDE. Any kind of bird does not need to be outside without a proper large aviary with a closed in room in the back.Unless you have the money to build one of these, get your bird inside and keep him there.

Sounds as if you are not taking good care of your bird, so you need to get to work here or you will lose him.

Take him back to the vet. You don't want to lose him. Crop infections need to be re-checked and more meds given if they haven't responded the first time.
