I can't get him to open his tiny mouth for a dropper...not to mention for coconut oil, but I'll try!When he poops can you get some photos?
Waterlike and fleshy, I would say it's starting to sour.
I would start with giving a little coconut oil, don't massage.
You may need to treat for sour crop and Coccidiosis. Do you have any Corid (Amprolium) on hand? What about an anti-fungal/yeast cream like Miconazole or Clotrimazole?
And yes, if you are wondering, it seems like people ask - I have used and given both to young birds with good results and no problems.
No pictures of poop, and I can't say that I can now identify which "plops" we're discussing, but they weren't watery...just normal I'd say.
I can get my hands on some Corid today, and we do have the Miconazole cream.
