    Why does my month old have a hard time swallowing when it eats, it had to stretch it's nectar out

    Bet it is just adjusting it's crop. Some do eat a lot at once, then stretch their necks out, and adjust that food in there, and try to get it moved down a bit. Does this chick always have a full looking crop? [​IMG]

    Maybe it would like smaller ground feed, or moistened a bit with water

    Hi, everyone, I don't think it's the crop it's up to high. It's just under its bottom beak. Maybe a system or tumor, I don't know.
