A week or so ago I posted that my sweet little white bantam cochin was ill and I didn't know why. She was pooping green poop, not walking or eating. I took her to the vet who wasn't sure what was wrong either but put her on baytril as a first step. I was constantly trying to get her to eat baby parrot formula with a pippette (sp?) but it was rough trying to get it down her. 4 days later I returned to the vet to have her tube fed. She had lost 40 gms. since her previous visit 4 days earlier!! The feeding must have kick started her as she has been improving ever since. When I tried to make her take her formula that night I discovered that she would eat it out of a bowl. (Whew! What a relief from forcing a syringe down her throat!) She also was given high potency parrot pellets which she ate and she began nibbling at other things too. Over time, her appetite has gotten better and better, she is now walking around the house again (woo hooo!) and her poops aren't so green anymore. She's even raiding the dog's dish of food like she did before she got sick! I THINK she is going to make it!!!! Just had to share my joy with you all!!!!
