Found him in the park tonight, while walking the dog. He can walk but not run, and he can't fly higher than a foot or two off the ground.
Thin as anything, prominent keel but no other symptoms or injuries, just very weak, closing his eyes often. He wasn't cold or even fluffed up, but I put him on a heating pad anyway.

He drank a lot (by himself) and was hand fed 35 thawed peas and corn, which he showed no difficulty swallowing. After that, half the daily dosage of Baytril and Flagyl, and another drink.
I hope he makes it...

Soni has called him Ozzy.

Thank you, Mshell. Universal hug

Update: Ozzy was a girl, and the cause of death was egg yolk peritonitis. The warmth, the antibiotic and the tepid water drink were right, but the infection was far too advanced to treat. Poor sweet girl... Very sad

Poor Ozzy. Bless her heart. Very sad

Being in a safe, loving and secure envirnment as they prepare to move on is the best we can ask for. Pigeon angel
