Hard time swallowing

post #1 of 7

Why does my month old have a hard time swallowing when it eats, it had to stretch it's nectar out

 Bet it is just adjusting it's crop.  Some do eat a lot at once, then stretch their necks out, and adjust that food in there, and try to get it moved down a bit.  Does this chick always have a full looking crop?   :)

Maybe it would like smaller ground feed, or moistened a bit with water

Hi, everyone, I don't think it's the crop it's up to high. It's just under its bottom beak. Maybe a system or tumor, I don't know.
