jannes she was a p/r female flying at 200g. i think the shock and obviously the cold will knock weight off. by the time she was dry she was low in condition and probably weight aswell although i didnt weigh her as i knew she wasnt going to eat of her own accord. im 100% certain she would have been dead had i not crop tubed.

Although they may be closely linked - hypothermia may result in hypoglycaemia ultimately.
As Kevin's post above shows - common sense is critical.
I should bloody hope so too mate! Lol!

Dont get me wrong Karl, Im all for croptubing with a booster in a bad situation, but Ive seen how easily it can go pearshaped. It terrifies me to think about a total novice shoving tubes and liquids down a small bird's gob. Thats all.

My regards and respect

Fair play. I flew two different male Afgosses at that exact weight and I know how fragile they can be.

Best regards

I'd like to replace the liquied Lectade solution for my avian First Aid pack.

They don't seem to make it any more, at least I can't find it on the internet.

Does anyone know of a source ?

I'd rather get the ready mixed, liquid Lectade as then I know it is already at the correct dilution.

Thanks.
