Hi - can someone please help me !!!
I'm new at this forum, so I hope I'm doing this in the right area. 8 days ago, one of our budgies died, leaving 3 babies (9-14 days old approx). We brought them inside, visited the local pet shop for advice and started trying to handraise them. Unfortunately we lost the youngest 2, but the oldest seems to have been going great. 4 days ago it was active and if you put it down on the floor it would run around. If I put it on my chest, it would climb up to my shoulder and nibble on my neck/hair. However, it now seems unwell - its crop does not seem to empty between feeds (looks swollen) and it can't move around without falling over (seems to be top heavy). Can someone please give me some help quickly, as I'm scared we are going to lose our little one and I've done some serious bonding with it and would be devastated. As you can guess, we have never had to do this before - this is our first babies.
