I have this 2 month old about cross beak pullet and I've solved the not eating issue my big problem now is cleanliness after meals. This chick eats mush and I put things like veggies, some chicken food, and mackerel all mixed with water. The food gets so dry and caked on so quick while she's trying to eat that it gets crusty and I've tried vitamin e oil to take it off warm water dog shampoo and it barley works and I can't get close to her eyes where its really bad. I've tried to pick off the crusties with some tweezers but I pull her feathers and skin and it goes on for hours and I feel at a lost and she smells like yeast. Any help or tips on anything about crossbeaks is very much welcome thank you!!!
