one of my finches is sick he is sitting on the botom of the cage feathers puffed up breathing very hevily and doesnt react to my closness (he doesnt fly away) please tell me what i can do to help my finch
The warmth of a small enclosure below is correct. If you can regulate the temp to about 86 degrees even better. Don't cover the complete cage as the bird needs to get away from the heat if it has to.
Next get som "Pedalyte for babies" or "Gatorade" and cut 50% with water. Feed with a syringe if you have to, this will help with hydration and the electrolytes will work to perk him up. Worry more about hydration than food until it responds.
