How many ML's should a tube fed bird get each day?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was given a Silkie hen almost a week ago with severe wry neck. The previous owner had already been tube feeding her.  I am feeding her the Katee Exact parrot food,  a vitamin and electrolyte powder and  oxytetracycline. I am feeding her with a (roughly) 20 ML syringe at least 3 times a day but I was trying to give her 2 syringes full (40 ML) each feeding but at some times she does regurgitate the formula. Am I on the right track? More food...less food...suggestions?

Sorry, I don't know anything about tube feeding, but just giving this a bump...
