    @Princessbella Didn't you say you got some hand feeding formula for her. It works well as a soft food and has a lot of nutrients in it. When my birds were very ill and wouldn't eat they lived on feeding formulas for weeks - hand feeding them. I would mix some Almond butter, papaya and tofu in it for additional energy. You can blend it in the blender.

    Did the vet give you pain meds and antibiotic for her? it's important that she have both.

    Poor, poor baby girl.

    Oh no. I'm so sorry. I'm glad Bella is going to be okay. Can you microwave and mash some sweet potato? Maybe some rice? And if you need anything, please PM me. I can bring things over to you.

    Thank you everyone for their suggestions, thoughts and prayers. Bella is definitely feeling a little better today. She tried to play with her shredders. She gets an antibiotic and pain meds every 12 hours. I am also hand feeding her right now. She remembers that she likes the taste and work is letting me bring her into the office when I am on a late shift to feed and medicate her. She does eat rice and I will try that with soaked pellets. But I have plenty of handfeeding food. She right now has that food face that baby tiels have and she is sleeping on my chest right now. She is in need of a lot of cuddles and I am happy to give them to her. You guys are so great.

    Soaked pellets were a no. Organic macaroni and cheese on the other hand was YUM.
