    Love Bird

    Hi, I have a baby lovebird that is 18 days old today. I have been hand feeding it since day 1. so far it is eating well but doesn't have its eyes open yet and seems a lot smaller than its littermate which is being fed by another love bird. is this something I should call a vet about. I also have a baby conjure that is 13 weeks old now and still doesn't have its eyes open either. Nor do these birds seem to be developing any feathers. They are in an incubator so not sure what the problem is. The conjure also seems to have a lot of air in his crop all the time. although I can dispel it, it seems to come right back.
    I have been doing baby birds for a long time,with the exception of the conjures which are new to me and have never encountered these problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I would suggest you call an avian vet and explain to them what you posted above. They should be able to tell you hoiw to proceed.
