    Never had this issue but look and see if you can see anything sticking out of her beak. If you can pull on'a piece of string or grass sticking out it could help. If not, try a little bit of olive oil to help it go down. Use an eye dropper or spoon, maybe a tablespoons worth.

    Good luck.

    If you can't see the hole at the back of her tongue it means that something is blocking it. Look very closely...
