    hello all,

    I’m new to this and have joined for some much needed advice, I have a aviary of canaries and have arrived home to find one appearing to be choking, she is holding her mouth open for long periods as if she is trying to clear her throat, we have tried to open her beak but she is becoming very distressed, I’m also very worried we will lodge something down further! Any help would be so appreciated

    Take her to an avian vet ASAP. I would say this at this point, it is a matter of life or death.

    Oh no, how scary! I hope you found a vet to help her. How is she now?

    Hope your canary will be OK. Wonder if she is just doing some crop adjustment although if it has been going on for a long time perhaps not. Let us know how she is doing.

    Sounds more serious than crop adjustment, hope you’ll update us.
