Quote:I suspect she may have become too chilled and dehydrated and not sufficiently recovered and the effects of this has snowballed. If you can get her to a vet so he can properly address these sorts of underlying issues and any others , that would be her best option. If you are unable to do this then get some proper electrolytes/vitamins...separate her and dribble some of the electrloyte (warm temperature not cold) regularly along her beak Also get some baby parrot handfeeding formula (get this at petstore or online if there are none in your area that carry it) ...it is a powder that you mix water with... mix that in with some of her feed.
Is her feed medicated (if not then there may be an issue with cocci so watch her poos for consistency and eventual signs of blood)
Well, I used a dropper to feed some gatorade-water and she perked up and is chirping but now the trick is to get her eating. I guess we'll see how the day goes. I'd appreciate any other suggestions. Thanks!
i'll go to the pet store and look for the parrot food this morning. Thanks
* You can try making her some hot mash using a spoonful of your chick starter and a little hot water in a very small SHALLOW dish or bowl. You then have to push her beak into it, probably repeatedly to get her eating. Have a cloth on your lap and another one handy b/c this is messy work!! Try for 10 minutes or so. Don't wear her out, o.k.?
Well my daughters baby died yesterday. She had an obituary written for her when we got home from church. (Among other things it said she died from an eating disorder!! haha!) The rest are thriving so I hope all goes well with them. Thanks for any help
