My Parakeet is full of grain food and is just laying down. Her throat or stomach if filled with grain and i can feel it. Im afraid that my bird will die and she is also not drinking her water. Is it because she is stuffed with food or because she isnt thirsty.? Please help I'm freaking out!!!!

If your bird is not already dead, get her to an avian vet as an emergency.

I don't know what kind of grain you are talking about, but birds cannot digest uncooked grain. All grain products have to be well cooked in order for them to be digested.

The proper way to feed your bird should have been the first thing you learned. The avian vet may be able to get all this mess out of her, and I imagine she is already dead by now

In future, when you have an emergency situation, take your pets to the proper medical services people like regular vets for dogs and cats and avian vets for birds.

This happened to my parakeet also

The food is not moving thru its body. It gets harder and harder, until it dies.
I denfintely would take it to an avian vet, immediately.
