Thread: Blue Tits Babys

    Question Blue Tits Babys

    Hello,
    I'm looking after seven abandoned blue tit babys.
    I'm feeding them cat food, meal worms and baby food.
    I'm at day three, alls fine except some of them are beginning to have problems pooping. I can see them trying but nothing happens. =\
    Am I feeding them right?
    Should I give them water?
    What should I do?
    Thanks, AnimalLover11

    You can buy specialist insectivorous food, it is expensive but worth the cost. As it is their new diet may have just bunged them up a bit, however it couldalso be a sign that they are nto turning over their food properly.
    Are their crops bulging and visible at all times, if so you could be in danger of sour crop or even a blockage.
    If they get dehydrated, inject them with saline just under the leg. The best way to know if they are dehydrated badly is to look at their feet, in dehydrating chicks their feet will literally shrivel and dry up.
    Good luck though, the diet you are giving them could suffice but id still recommend the specialist diet.
