I left the chick in a fake nest overnight and it did nothing. So I left it in the same nest for another 24 straight hours, then the second morning I awoke and it was gone. Replaced by a lump in the middle of his belly. I was so relieved as must already know. I left the tank covered with a towel as it had been for the previous week during the two days the chick was in the nest, i'm sure that helped. I guess he just needed a little more time than usual, this makes it eactly 2 months and 10 days since it arrived and hadn't eaten. Sure am glad to get this first one ot of the way. Off to the second feeding seven days from now, hopefully the same method will yeild similar results. Thanks so much for your help along the way, I was really getting worried there for a while and it really helped to be able to get advice from someone who had been through something similar.
