    How is the bird doing now?

    If you are still having problems, bring the bird into the house so you can monitor - feed intake, water, and poo. Feel the crop in the morning - early before the bird starts eating (mine start as soon as light touches the sky) and then a couple times during the day. During the day, the crop with increase and decrease in size - this is normal - birds can pack their crop full, full of feed.
