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.
