Hi!

I have a baby cockatiel 13 days old. I pulled it away from the nest because parents were not giving him food or warming him. He have a bad yeast infection which I'm using Nystatin to treat it. This is the second day of treatment. He is dehydrated and have lost weight. I think the yeast have blocked his crop cause it slow down. Also he have a clear liquid coming up from the crop and his crop gets full of air not much but enough to take space in it. How do I treat him now? Also I read about epsom salts in birds but I don't know if its safe to use in cockatiels.

Thank you, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, unfortunately the baby cockatiel died the yeast infection was suffocating him. Thanks for the information since I have another healthy couple that may reproduce soon.
