    What causes this? I was thinking it was from being cramped up in his egg for 34 days but I dont know. Has Crookie started gaining weight at all?

    Crookie still can't eat, so I have to tube him, and because I'm so worn out playing nurse maid, he's not really gaining. Have a duckling that's the same way, and I think it's because they spent too long stuck like that.

    Crookie is now eating a little on his own, but still wants to be tube fed, lol. He's a monster, lol. I had to abandon the neck brace because it was putting pressure on his crop which would cause him to vomit, but the brace was made out of a soft foam.
