I was left to raise a indian ringneck from 2.5 weeks as we had an avery and the two parents died tragically and suddenly. I had to either take it over or let it die. It has been perfect up to 7 weeks, it stopped accepting the syringe and wont open its beak for it. It doesnt know to eat the soft veg and mixture I supply for it when it is hungry and it bobs its head at me but wont accept the syringe!
Out of desperation I force feed it the syringe and i really dont want to have to do that as I am worried i ingure it! I don't know what to do, how do u get it to eat and I feel really desperate with no help and nobody knows anything about my situation around me.... PLEASE HELP.... What should i do... I dont want to force feed it and I dont want it to starve...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-(
