Re: Help! Underweight cockatiel baby

Hi I am no expert and it's been a while since I handraised Rocky but the crop should be full after a feeding and stay full for about 4 hours. If the crop emptys too quickly it could be that the formula is too runny, which happened with Rocky a bit. I used to add some weet bix to bulk it up a bit.
