    Baby budgies are not eating food. Please Help!!

    Hi everyone,

    I have three baby budgies (2 and a half weeks, 3 weeks, and 4 weeks old) Their parents died and now I have the job of hand raising them. However they won't eat the food. I have made up to formula as the packet says, but they won't open their mouths to eat. I have tried using a syringe and spoon but neither helps. I have tried tapping their beaks with the spoon, but they won't take it. They are starving. They haven't eaten for almost 24 hours. They are calling for food and trying to eat from each other. I don't know what to do!!

    Any help would be great. I am desperate.

    Try what they suggest. I think you may have to try harder with a syringe. If they still won't eat, take them to a vet urgently. Don't delay.
