    She is probably very sore so not eating... Hopefully she will start waiting on her own soon. Give as much as you are able. The vitamins will help her a lot. How old is she? And about what.size. Try feeding her scrambled egg or you can get parrot handfeeding formula you can make into a.soup like mix. Sounds like a possible predator attack......make sure to check for that.
