He feels very thin and frail...plus his feathers are all puffed up. He doesn't feel like he normally does at all.

don't give up yet -

since he hasn't eaten much, I would offer him a little later on tonight, but don't stress if he doesn't eat

the big thing is to keep him warm, but not hot and hydrated tonight until you can get him to the vet in the morning (add a little water to the mash, like thin oatmeal, this will give him a little extra fluids)

You are doing great with him :hug2:

The mash is Banana and water and Mazuri breeder pellets which become liquified. I figure they have extra nutrition in them. I'm gonna check on him right now...

He's still alive. I'm going to sign off now and I'll try to get more in him at midnite and update then. Thanks so much everyone.

I hope your baby makes it through the night and you can get him to a vet in the morning. Good vibes and warm feelings coming your way.

He may just have a bad bacterial infection. You are doing all the right things. Do you have a heating pad? Put that under half of the carrier so that he can stay warm but move away should he become too warm.

Prayers he pulls through.

You guys on AA are unbelievable. Thank you all so much.

Lorien is still alive. I made a new mash of just the pellets and water and made it more watery this time. I found my feeding syringe and I was able to get a lot more into him this time. He's so weak though. His neck was pretty much limp.

The vet doesn't open until 9AM tomorrow so if he's still with me in the morning I'm going to make sure I'm there at 9AM.

If it wasn't for you guys I know he would be gone already. Once again, thank you so much. I didn't even know this 911 section was on AA.

Tim, I will light a candle for Lorien and send healing energy to the both of you. He is just beautiful and I know he feels comforted by you being there with him. Hang in there, its almost morning now.

You can add some corn syrup to the mash to give him some glucose and bring his blood sugar up. A couple of drops would help.

I am so sorry he is so sick. He is truly beautiful. I am dealing with a sick one too, and this board has been amazing with all of the help and support. Hopefully he made it through the night. I will be thinking of both of you.

I checked on Lorien at 6AM and thought he was dead. But when I pulled him from the nest his eye which was still open a sliver blinked. He's completely lifeless at this point now, but he's still fighting. I forced in a very tiny bit of watery mash and held him for a while. I reheated the water bottle and put him back. I'm praying he can hang on these last two hours before 9AM.
