"Finch" quit crowing awhile back. We thought it was odd, but since we live w/in city limits not a bad thing.
He seemed fine, other than the crowing, until today. This morning, my husband told me that he was
making weird sounds. I went out to check on him later in the morning and found him repeatedly making
an almost sneeze/hiccup type of sound. His crop feels completely empty. He seems "normal" in the pen
with everyone else, but when you pick him up, he makes the weird noise and seems listless. Since it
is already nearly 6PM here, I can't get to a vet or feed store for anything until tomorrow. I have brought him
in and recorded a clip of the sound to share here. If anyone has some tips or ideas, please LMK.
I have "people" penicillin here at the house, and some electrolyte mix, but that's about it.
I'm guessing an infection of some type...........or maybe even gape worm?
Now I'm also worried about all my other birds.
