Re: Problems Hand Feeding Parrotlets

Yea, I must say, I already sort of want to name him "Zombie", as morbid as it may sound. But if you had seen how close to death he looked when i went and picked him up. He just sat and swayed, and shook, his eyes half closed. When I gave him the pedialyte, there was no feeding response whatsoever. I honestly didn't even expect him to last an hour until I fed everyone else. Within an hour, he was bouncing, begging for food. The change was astronomical. It really was like reanimating the dead. It was astounding to see. If it wasn't for the fact that I was the only person to touch him, I would have thought it was a different bird.
