    The crop was completely empty every time which is why it is so
    puzzling to me. Only on the day he died did his crop not empty
    well. During the day he seemed to feed every 2.5 to 3 hours
    then at night he would go about 3.5 to 4 hours without eating.
    I had never heard the vinegar before....I may try
    that.....thanks for the advice Pegi
