Yesterday I found two orphaned baby sparrows in very bad condition (not injured, just cold and starving) Their two sibs were already dead and mom was nowhere to be found. Anyway, all has been going fairly well except the smaller one has been having some eating problems. What he does is he takes the food (sometimes he gapes, othertimes he's forcefed, because I don't want him to starve) and sometimes swallows it, but most of the time just holds it in the back of his mouth and starts opening his mouth really wide and then closing it again and again like he's having a hard time breathing. As soon I get the food out, he's fine within a matter of seconds. I'm afraid he's not getting enough to eat...he's only eating a mouthful every 30-45 minutes...what should I do? What's wrong with him? The other baby is completely normal and fine. p.s.-They eat this recipe: 1 boiled egg yolk 1 single serve regular applesauce 1 cup soaked dry cat food Water as needed for proper consistency They sleep in a little bowl (one of those single-serve cereal ones) with shredded up toilet paper. They were using hot water packs and a heating pad at first but now they only need the heating pad.
