Cordon Bleu seems to have an obstruction.

Yesterday my bird was fine. This morning he was eating but seemed to have difficulty swallowing. Kept stretching and twisting his neck. Later he started panting and breathing faster and heavier. He appears to have an obstruction in the neck area.Has not passed stools today. I have placed him in a small cage with a heat lamp and gently massaged his neck area. Should I add something to his water to keep him alive? P.S. I am a nurse

Bird with possible obstruction

Unfortunately being a nurse will not help your bird. You need to Find an Avian Vet that can see your bird in person for this bird to get help. Dr B can't help because he can't examine the bird to determine what is causing this.
