    He needs a heat source like a heat lamp, and maybe see if you can get him to drink a little water. Other than that I don't know but hopefully someone with more experience will come along

    Agree with S.L.

    With the water though, make that sugar water.

    Drop the water on the side of his beak, and don't squirt it into his mouth.
