My most pricy tiel is pearly she came from a store she cost me $109 and she was handtame already my old mans sister cost me $50 she was a hand tame baby my Lutino was $50 not tame but only took a few hours my Diego was $30 he was a hand tame baby. Freckles was supposedly semi tame but she's tame now after a few hours she cost me $10 she's supposedly is 10 years old. And my peaches is a home bred baby I had to milk her crop and hand feed her when she was a baby.All of them!? WOW! I bet that cost a lot to buy haha. Unless you hand raised them yourself?
I had to empty her crop but pushing the food in it out. Because she had a crop infection I read they usually die in the process but she lived through it she also had a popped air sac I think it's called where air is in the crop. So I had to deflate her crop of air to. That's why she's tame.I like all of your tiels, Rachel.
What does the term "milk her crop" mean?
I couldn't let her just die because the daddy was overfeeding her when she was born I never milked anything until I had to milk her I'm amazed she lived she was so small compared to her brother and she wasn't growing so I had to take over and help save her life. I hope if I ever breed my tiels again that never happens.Wow! That sounds complicated. I'm glad she survived. You must have been very careful.
