My 2 week old budgie chick is going cold, he has stopped opening his eyes, and isn't doing much movement. Also his crop isn't emptying like usual, so I'm unable to give him his feeding. He seems sick and cold, PLEASE HELP!!

Is he in a brooder? With the parents?

That is because he is cold.

Warm him up, it is very important. Get someone to cup him in their hands while you set up the brooder correctly with a heat pad. Sometimes a hot water bottle will do if nothing else. First, get him warm in your cupped hands.


Please act quickly. Cold chicks do not survive.

@Sara Aziz How is the little one? I hope he´s ok
I couldn't make a new brooder with the given supplies in urgent so I modified the one in which he was and placed heat pads in it. But he hasn't pooped since 5 hours and now I'm really scared
Please guide!
