Baby cockatiel behavior
We have a five day old cockatiel that had to be hand fed from 2 days old because the parents were no longer taking care of it. So far it has done well with formula - it eats regularly and has gotten stronger since the incident with its parents.
A vet told us to do our best to keep its head up after eating to prevent aspiration. Regardless of how much we pad it up, it insists on being pretty much upside down. It curls up and sleeps on it's head, tail in the air. Is this something that happens often, or should we worry. Thank you for any advice.
