That is good news, hopefully they are over the **** now and the fact that they are very active is a good sign.

I just wanted to update.
The babies are doing ok. They are still active and eating.

I have cut down the amount and frequency of feeds so their crop is emptying a lot more now. I have also been giving some puréed vegetables which they seem to digest much better. The one has eaten a couple seeds off the millet I put in their home but it seem to stay in the crop all day and floats around when I feed.

I'm wondering how stunted their growth is and what I should do about it?
Here is a pic of the most developed one a few days ago at 3.5 weeks of age. They are 4 weeks today.

I'm glad they're doing so much better

With regular feedings and more effective digestion now that their crop is emptying properly, they should look more like they are 4 weeks in two weeks at the most. Most four-week-olds already have their down and a large part of their "big bird" feathers.
Hopefully they progress normally from now on

That is good news. I am glad they are doing better.

With the stunted growth I would not worry to much. I have found that babies that lacked nutrition early on often caught up to birds the same age by about 6 months. It just takes them a little longer to get there.

What you have managed to do for the two little chicks is wonderful.

I'm wishing them all the best and hope in time their growth will catch up to others and they will be blessed with a long, healthy and happy life.

Thumbs up

Thank you!!!

I have noticed changes daily in them at this point. Everyday more feathers and and bigger.
They still seem hungry all the time but I guess that is just how they are. Hehe.

The crop is still slower to empty than most and seems to have a sludge even when quite empty which I am assuming may be candida and the nystatin should help. Fingers crossed.

I don't think I can give them back after all this though. They run to me like I'm mama bird and my daughter has grown quite attached as well. They are family now.

As the chicks are hopefully out of the "Emergency" situation now, I've moved your thread over to the "Follow-Up" section of the forum and renamed it, "Chicks with Slow Crop".

Please continue to post updates on their condition in this thread.

Here they are today.
This is after a feed. I was wondering if I am filling them an appropriate amount?
They are growing well in size but the feathers on their body aren't where they should be at although Wing feathers are
Growing everyday!!!

Their crops look fine, not overfed and not underfed.

With the problems they have had the feathers will probably take a bit longer than normal. There is a lot of protein and nourishment that goes into developing feathers and their bodies need the nourishment more at the moment. Birds are also individuals and some take longer than others to develop fully. Body feathers are always the last to come through and the crop is the last of the body to cover with feathers. They will eventually catch up. They are looking pretty good considering the tough start they have had. You are doing a great job with them.
