Just for future info and knowledge. How would I know if a bird aspirates? What do I look for while hand feeding? I am using a syringe for hand feeding. I have a piggy 24 day old cockatiel and does not want to come up for air.

Can any cockatiel raisers help me understand the feeding schedule. My baby 25 days sleeps overnight crop empties cause I stop feeding at 11:00. But if I feed him at 6-7 by 11-12 his crop is about empty then 4-5 again 10-11 the last of the day. He is eating any where from 9 to 10 ml per feeding. But I weighed him this morning he weighed 49.05 grams. Is he normal. Any suggestions? Do I just go off his crop and feed him on this schedule he is growing and thriving. I am feeding him Exact Kaytee. I use 1 TBSP to 1TBSP of of water and 1TBSP of coconut water/ organic heated to around 106*. Syringe feeding.
