Baby food in her nose?

10597 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  misses cakes
My new tiel who I am hand feeding has baby tiel formula stuck in her nose. I tried to wipe it out with a towel but it is still in there. Will she be ok? Also when I fed her last, she starting bringing back up her food and then eating it. Is this normal?

i am sorry but none of mine do that I'm hand feeding 3 tiels right now just got done with 2 other tiels and I've hand fed a love bird and NONE have ever brought their food back up and ate it

its either it's getting into the lungs OR the bird is being over fed

and being showed one time isn't enough - at least for me it wasn't, I watched several videos over and over and over and then had my b/fs dad come over and show me and even know i've fed 6 so far - I am still not comfortable doing it, I'm scared the whole time But once i start i'm fine. it's just the starting out part each and every feeding.
