Air in baby gcc crop

Sponsored Links
Hi, I have 2 baby chicks that are 2 weeks old, they are being parent raise, one of the chicks is on its back with a large air bubble in his crop. Is this normal? They are green cheek conures.

Re: Air in baby gcc crop

Yes, it's completely normal to see air bubbles inside of their crops. Whether they are being fed by their parents or with formula by a person, air will seep-in along with the food, and you can definitely see little bubbles inside of their crops...As long as we're talking about you just seeing little air bubbles inside his crop, and not seeing his crop blown-up with a huge bubble, that would not be normal...But I don't think that's what you meant, lol...
