Hello

My two tiels have recently had a clutch of four little floofs.

Now three of them hatched at the same day whilst the other hatched around three to four days later.
I've noticed it's siblings getting more food whilst it's crop is usually never fully filled but like- just ever so slightly.
Currently it's more of a bulge than a healthy crop.

I have never handfed chicks before but I feel like this is the only option I have? The lil one is 6 days old at this point and still looks freshly hatched.

gaining access for formula will take at least three days due to harsh weather conditions we have at the moment. I'll be coming into contact with my vet if they're open but if you guys can help in any way, shape or form I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

I think 4 chicks are not too many for the parents. Check this little one's crop at later evening, if not full, you need worry about hand feeding, if the crop is full, this little one should be ok. I find parent usually adjust how much to feed based on ages.

Based on white hair, this little one could be a pure white bird.
