    You mix 1.5 tablespoons in one gallon and then you have to get him to drink a whole bunch of it several times a day. How are you giving his water? How much are you giving him?

    he gets his liquid through his food,in the morning and at night,and then I have a baby medicine dropper that I use and he can drink like up to three dropper fulls at times,it just depends on how hot it is,he has that cross beak or scissor beak,he has it really bad,but he takes care of two girls just fine,we all love him soooo much,i think he thinks he a dog or something like that,but I call him and he comes and jumps in my lap.i really thank you for your time,
