clogged nostrils in an african greys baby

I have a three-month African grei and nostrils are clogged. Put the warm water with a cotton swab for a few days but not unseal. What else can I do?

Yes, as Tracie said, you need to take your Grey to an Avian Vet in your driving area. Since you have attempted to clean out the nostrils, it probably means that he has an upper respiratory infection that is creating a lot of mucous. The longer you wait, the worse this will get and once it turns into pneumonia like symptoms, he'll stop eating and drinking and die shortly thereafter.

This is a case for immediate help from an Avian Vet or you risk your bird's life in the waiting. You've done all you can do and all any of us can do as it is now up to an Avian Vet to diagnose and treat his illness.

I believe it would be best to visit an avian vet, not only to help your bird get it's nostrils cleared, but to determine WHY they got that way in the first place.
