my baby sun conure's crop is not emptying on time ??
Hello Sir ! I just got a 4 week old sun conure baby from my friend who bought it for hand feeding and could not do the job so gave it to me. I have a little experience as I hand fed my Indian Ringneck too (now he is 2.5 years old) , but still I told him I am not an expert and he should not have bought such a young bird.
When I got him, his crop was full around 3 pm. The whole day his crop was emptying very slowly and it completely got emptied by 7 next morning. After that I fed him a small amount of baby formula around 9 AM and he seemed to do fine. His crop completely emptied by 3 Pm and then I fed him again. But since then the same thing happened and his crop is emptying slowly. Its now 5 30 AM over here and his crop is close to empty now.
I want to ask why is this happening and what should I do to make him digest fast. Unfortunately The Place where I live does not have any avian vets available (only dog,cat vets are here who do not deal with birds).
Other than this he seems fine and also moves around the box where I have kept him. His dropping are green with white in it and some liquid too.
Please tell me what should I do !! Any sort of help will be appreciated. Thanks !
