    Let me first say that I called a vet first. They're going to call me back.

    My crimson belly conure just swallowed the back of my 10 gauge plugs. They're rubber, not metal, which is probably better... Any advice? Do you think he'll be able to pass it himself?

    Find a vet right away!!!!! Don't waste any time waiting for a vet to call you!!!! EVERY SECONDS COUNTS REMENBER WHAT I SPOKE ABOUT BEFORE, IT MIGHT NOT BE NOTHING BUT IT COULD BE EVERYTHING
    the vet might sucked out his crop with a tube, that rubber thing might plug up his crop then you are dealing with another problem.
    just call a vet that will see you as soon as possible!
    Birds are so much different then dogs and cats, THEY NEED A VET,EVERY SECONDS COUNTS!!!!
