one of my 8 is not thriving like the others. her body rocks with her beak open as she breathes. her eyes are closed most of the time, it seems she is so exhausted that all she can do is let out a few shrill chirps like she is uncomfortable. at first she would stumble over to the food and take a few pecks at it. now i have to feed her (crumbled egg yolk and warm mashed medicated feed) and drop electrolyte water on the tip of her beak. i have felt her crop several times and sometimes it makes little watery noises, and at the bottom i felt a few very small hard fragments, not sure if that is normal. she poops maybe twice a day- green with white. i am not sure that her crop empties all the way, but she is pooing still, but not a lot. any advice, knowledge, experience- anything- will be so appreciated.
