    I have 30, 28, 24, 18, 14, 12, 8. Bought a bunch in prep for this.

    Bridge keeps looking like she needs to poop and then nothing comes.

    Okay, you're all set then. For a bird her size I would use a size 18 for water. What size syringes did you get?

    60cc. I have smaller, too, for meds, syringe feeding, etc.

    Have you practiced placing the tube on anyone yet?

    Just checked on her. She’s just standing g there under my neighbor’s tree puffed up.

    No. Good point.

    My most docile is molting, so she’s out.

    Do you use the tube full length or cut it to size? The tip is nice and rounded and the other end fits nicely on the syringe.

    The only ones I cut are the 8's and 10's, and that's because with small chicks the second hole won't be in the crop, it'll be in the esophagus.
