it could be a ruptured air sac or sour crop, but we'd need photos to know for sure

ok, i see a lot of this has to do with formula feeding, would it empty the crop the same way for a parent fed baby? so i massage the crop while holding the baby upside down and then once every thing is out use the alka seltzer remedy?

i would also like to know if i should remove the baby from the parents to prevent them feeding it. all the bigger ones make the growling type sound when being feed and i think he is the one in there cheeping to be feed.

ok relax. i think you should try the emptying of the crop. you need to get the sour stuff out.


taking a closer look at the photos he also seems dehydrated, so you will want to make the recipe for the lactated ringers for after
