I have had baby birds with air bubbles. It's usually all about the parents bad feeding practices. Inexperienced parents can feed and leave airbubbles in baby's crop as they havent delivered anything apart from air during the feeding process. Or it can be sour crop in the baby. If baby is old enough you can massage the air bubble out, like burping a baby, but I prefer to leave it alone. It usually comes right.

Thanks Kaz for anserwing :o

 

I have noticed that JC the daughter of JJ and CC, have tried and actually fed its brothers and sisters from the next generation. But have noticed that CC does not like that and fights with JC

 

Is this bad if another budgie feed the another budgies young?

How old should the baby be for me to burp it?

Will this bubble cause any health concerns if kept permenant?

But have noticed that CC does not like that and fights with JC This is not good if JC is coming into the nest box to feed this baby...if that is the case JC needs to be removed from the breeding cage. But once fledged it is okay for a sibling to feed its brothers and sister. If this is a case where you have others in with a breeding pair ( even babies from a previous clutch ) I would remove all others except the parents

How old should the baby be for me to burp it? I wouldnt try it if inexperienced...the chick needs to be slightly older than yours are right now. It should be fine

Will this bubble cause any health concerns if kept permenant? It should not be permanent
