Default how to prevent aspiration while feeding

hi, my hen did not feed her new born baby. It hat very little food in his crop. I waited for approx. 12 hours and it did not change. Baby chick was begging for food. I could not wait any longer and did not want that it starves. So I fed the baby chick, very carefully. It was very messy. Then I first thought it is sleeping, but it was dead. I think she aspirated the food.

So I am really afraid, there are 5 more eggs. What if she doesnt feed the nestlings well? shall I then intervene or not..how long to wait before chick starves? how can I prevent aspiration? I just gave her on her right side a small blob and she swallowed it. I did not force food in her. I dont know what went wrong. I am still crying.

so I see spoonfedding from infront of the beak. I thought it has to be from the left side of the cick, but in what position? 90 degrees? on youtube there are so much variations, what is the right one? I dont think I will ever handfeed, but dont know what to do if she does not feed.

the crop was filled maybe 2 milimeter. Is this enough to not die?

I'm sorry you are having problems.

Do you have a budgie breeder near you that can demonstrate the proper technique for you?

When you are feeding a chick, you must be extremely careful to have the right temperature for the formula, etc.

Please take a look at the information in this thread:
