Yes. I did take hime to the vet. I couldn't get him into either of the ones you told me about. One will no longer take any new bird patients, he is getting away from seeing birds. I believe it is the one you said you have used. He did recommend another vet and they got him in on friday. They suctioned out his crop, did not find an infection. He thought it was the brand of food. He said it looked very grainy and told me to switch foods. He gave the baby molasses to get things moving. Said not to feed him until it went down. I thought the baby would die He still had food in crop on saturday morning and he was very weak. I went ahead and gave him tiny bit of food and it went through. He is has been getting very watery food so far per vet. His crop is very stretched and droopy. Vet says it will tighten back up. Any ideas on how long? The vet did not seem like he was used to baby birds. He didn't give very clear answers to my questions.
