Today in the morning my 15 day old baby finch had his crop filled with air, i gently massaged the air out. And since morning he's making clicking sound and breathing with its mouth. He's also regurgitateing most of the time. His crop is now filled with salaiva like liquid and the hand feed is settled down in his crop. I noticed this liquid formation 3 days back but it used to get empty so i thought its normal.
and yesterday i aslo went to my friends place and he had cats over there, is it something to do with baby finch's problem , i mean some bacteria or mites would have come along with me.
Is it something very serious, is it air sac mite ??
Please help me out , because there is no vet clinic near my place

I'm sorry your baby is having troubles! I don't have any experience with this unfortunately, but hopefully someone else who does will be by soon

i changed the hand feed now he's a little better, formation of liquid and air in his crop has stopped.
but he's still regurgitateing in a weird way,
some times the food comes out through his mouth and there is still clicking sound.
can it be a crop infection ??

Is this the first baby you have handfed? Are you feeding with a spoon or a syringe?

Sorry I have no experience with finch feeding.
@finchly would be a good person to ask but she's not been online so much recently. Here is a link to her blog, there may be useful info there,
