Yes the poor thing has air all the way up to under the skin on his head. I took him to a local flyer. He helped me drain the air and then he put some water down his throat. He told me that sometimes, if the tear is low enough, the water will fill above the tear and prevent the air from escaping to under the skin. This flyer told me that in 40 years, he has only seen this happen twice. He said that a sharp piece of corn was the cause of the rip. Has any one ever heard of this? Are there any other options when it comes to draining the air?wow, I had this problem once before and I tried to poke a hole in the crop or sac to empty the air but I kept filling up the next day. Eventually the bird had to be euthanized, but I have heard that sometimes they can survive through this. Also, I have never seen a bird with such a flat head, Is it due to the air sac?
