  1. Sounds fine to me. personally i give my birds clear water and give them all their additives in their soft food.

    Personally i wouldn't give sulfa in the water unless you were treating for sickness as it kills good bacteria.


    Give pro-biotic on the days you dont give Apple cider vinegar.


    Very good advice! Many topics have been dedicated to soluble additives, remember the Search function is your Friend! :)



    Thank you both for you suggestions really appreciate it .......Regards John

Hi everyone havent made any posts for a long while been extremely busy just wanted to ask if i could get some viewpoints on adding supplements to my budgies drinking water that has the Avi-Cal in the water already other additives .....organic or Naturals cider vinegar Melrose brand and also Sulphadin ...would they all be okay to mix in the drinking water ... would appreciate some of your advise thank you.

  4. Thank you everyone yes thats him alright , it truly is amazing we cant believe it either but we are so grateful for him surviving and iam sure hes going to give us a lot of pleasure , we have two albinos two like the father and this little presure gem .Liv no we didnt do anything to treat it we just prayed he would be okay because it just happened all of a sudden and well i thought it may go away the same way as it started and sure enough it did very pleased and thankful.

  5. These are the little ones i posted that were all together in a basket earlier last week , now this first picture is the baby that had the swollen crop or air sac , wow are we so gad hes okay look at this bird hes different than his other brothers and sisters lol could someone tell us what he could be please he may not be anything special but hes special to us lol .

  6. Is it normal for male to stay with female in box with her eggs , he feeds her sometimes but other times just sits there with her i am worried about him breaking the eggs or eating them , am i overacting ? would love feedback please thank you John & Swanacilli .She has five eggs i dont think shes going to lay any more.

  7. update on baby hes still has enlarged crop or air sacs but otherwise seems healthy still feeding from mum and energetic like the other babies ,i just hope this all goes away from his crop and he survives all this he or she is such a sweetie pie..... and the other ones in the same nest are doing great all growing rapidly ,thank you all for your comments John & Swanacilli

  8. My first clutch of babies has been doing fine until yesterday i noticed one of the babies crop area has blown up very large i am very worried as it looks so uncomfortable for the little one can anyone help me please as to what i can do for it all others are fine all are healthy just this one for some reason crop has blown up !!!!!!

  9. I have some good news about the hen thats lost its partner the hen s feeding the chick we told you about that was nearly dead a second has hatched and she has been feeding it as well so pleased was worried sick about the little ones three more eggs to go , i aslo have a drama with my other clutch that the mother has 5 babies two weeks ago ive been checking them regularly keeping their bed clean and dry but i noticed one of the babies has a blown up crop its huge can anyone help me with what to do with this poor little babe, thank you

  10. Update on my hen with no cock bird the hen has hatched a little one this morning not sure on time but today as i checked last night all 5 eggs were still intact .........but this morning when i checked a little one had hatched but was on the outside of the mother who was sitting on the other eggs the chick was very cold so i took her an put her under the other mother i have with 5 babies to see if i could get it warmed up quickly and it worked but i don't think the mother will feed it.


    so i need to know i have hand raising mix can we give it some? to get something in its crop in case it starves to death. i hope we did the right thing i have put it back under the original mum to see if she will get the idea to feed it and keep it warm what are my other options please I would appreciate some advise.

  11. Yes i think she is Neat the breeder told me she was , but she looks to me she will be a good mum cause from the day the first egg has been laid she has been sitting on it ans now has four eggs before this happened i am giving her plenty of food options and easy access to it so we hoping everything goes well for her .

  12. Thank you so much everyone for your kind comments our hearts feel a lot lighter now we were so worried about what to do we have been putting her food close by and will take advise as to giving her millet sprays to save her coming out of the box she seems like a very good mum to be she never leaves the nest box since she started laying much at all i am just so sad i let this silly thing happen i will let you all know how things progress .thank you all once again for your kind advise John & Swanacilli.


    Oh i was wondering also whether any of her eggs from yesterday onward would be fertile or not seeing hes not there to do this any more ? she had three eggs and just after he left that night there was another egg i am just hoping that one is fertile .

  13. I made a big mistake yesterday i opened my cage door where i have a pair, hen is sitting on 4 eggs at the moment has only just started laying them i put in the food and the door of the cage didnt close and i was un aware it was left a bit open came back later to check them noticed he had gone now i dont know what i can do to help her rear these babies when they arrive , and will she be able to manage feeding them on her own ,would someone be able to give me some advise please.
