he landed on our coffee table momentarily where we have one (usually never does) and flew away before we could get it out of his mouth. Should I give him activated charcoal? How much?

My mom recently was unemployed due to Covid, we no longer have a vet, we used to
I would call your vet and ask if they can give you any information. It never hurts to ask. You will need to know how much your bird weighs.

He weighs 1.4 oz, a little chubby so we are trying to get him to lose weight. I mixed a 280 mg activated charcoal capsule with 1 tablespoon of water. I could not find the bird dropper so i just dipped my finger in the solution and made him bite my finger (I know it's bad but he wouldn't budge and I was getting desperate) I gave him about 8 of these and let him go as he was stressing out really badly. He hates being held. I comforted him and he's sleeping right now.
