So Tweety (INR) eats way better than before and his feathers look healthier because i try as i can to offer the best diet for him
so lately after he got his meal i noticed that tummy is swollen.... i can't tell if that is his tummy or his crop please help.

i'm very worried about my baby so please let me know if that's normal or not . Besides we don't have vet around :(

His tummy looks fine now but i'm afraid if that will happen again

If he just ate, it's his crop. If it goes back down over the course of several hours, it's the crop. :)

Yes it went back down after hours
I was just worried about that issue
It still confused me how to whether to know if that's is normal or where exactly his crop is
Thank you very much btw

Yeah i took a look at this post, they talked more about hand feeding baby parrot mostly, Tweety isn't a baby so i think his crop isn't obvious compares to a baby parrot :(
But i'll look again carefully
Thank you again for sharing this with me :heart2:
