Default Baby Coconut

I happened to meet a person who was closing down their aviary. I managed to rescue this baby. It's only 4 weeks old and was covered in poop and mites. I quickly took it to my avian vet and we've treated the mites and cleaned off the mess and it's doing so much better today. I decided to call it Coconut and will have to hand raise it myself as the the parents were re-homed.

(Night before vet visit)


(this afternoon)


She was having trouble feeding - each time I tried to feed her the food seemed to go down the wrong tube, so the vet gave me some equipment to do crop feeding (which we've successfully done twice now), and hopefully soon it will begin eating without the tube.

I'm keeping Coconut in the office and will take her out of the box tomorrow and put her into a travel sized cage (vet suggested I give her one more day in the box so that the mite treatment can take effect, that way mites won't get into the cage and I can just toss the box out tomorrow). Fingers crossed Coconut survives all this trauma and after quarantine will be ready to join the rest of the family.

Oh my goodness, how adorable but I cant believe someone would go getting rid of their birds while there are babies being raised. How heartless. Im so glad you were in the right place at the right time and were able to rescue baby Coconut. Youre a hero!!!! Will you keep her or rehome her when shes old enough?

Thanks for stepping in and rescuing the little one, she's really pretty, and lucky that you were there to step in, Coconut is a cute name for her. Being able to crop feed is a great skill to have hope all goes well. Of course we will need lots more pictures of her in the days to come.

Jessica,

Thank you (and karma) for rescuing Baby Coconut.
There is a special place in heaven for you.

I'm glad the vet has taught you how to crop feed your little baby and am sending prayers for Coconut.

She is very lucky to have you to love and care for her and hopefully after her quarantine period and when she is old enough she will become a healthy and happy member of your flock.

Yes, I adore it too much already lol.

In all of your kind responses you refer to Coconut as a she - does that mean it's a girl? Didn't know if it was too early to tell.

I don't really know if it's a male or female, Coconut is just so sweet and pretty looking I just sort of automatically said she.

Trigger warning for upsetting content below:

During Coconut's regular crop feed I accidentally punctured her asophogus and rushed her to the emergency vet. They gave me some antibiotics and I need to wait and feed Coconut in 4 hours and try just little syringe feeds, and not another crop feed till morning - if Coconut survives till then....

Will keep everyone posted - but feeling very horrid that I did something like that to her -even if it was an accident I am responsible. She's sleeping now - hopefully she can heal up and my anxiety will calm down.
