Hello 🙂

The Cockatiel Chick Is A Day Old Now ....I Fed The Chick Some Runny Formula At 5:30AM This Morning (3 1/4 Hours Ago) And The Crop Hasn’t Fully Emptied Yet ...Is This Normal ??

I Know I’m Asking Many Questions But This Is The Only Chick Of The Clutch !! 🙂

I Will Attach A Picture Of The Chicks Crop So You Guys Can See ...There Definitely Is A Bit Of Air In The Crop Too ...And The Rest Is Formula

Is the crop going down gradually? Is the baby pooping? If this is what the crop looks like after part of the food has been digested, then my suggestion is to not feed so much next time.

Is the baby staying warm enough? Chicks have to be warm to digest their food properly. Is the formula warm enough when you feed it to the chick?
