    My crimson rosella took the tip off a felt tip pen and has ink on husband tongue and beak! What do I do? He's only partly tamed so I can't wipe hind beak unless i try to catch him

    I don’t have any experience with my birds getting ink in their beaks, so I don’t know what to say. I don’t want to advise you to do something when I’m not 100% certain. How is he doing? Is he active?

    Do you mean a felt tip marker, like the kind usually used for drawing? Do you know if the package it came in has an ASTM-D label?

    He is ok this morning he's been doing drinking and eating so nothing strange. Yes it was a felt tip marker, I don't know what brand but it said on toxic. I think he will be ok. Thank you all for the help.
