    Trying pushing it out using your hands on the outside of the birds by trying to encourage it back up the esophagus maybe...
    Not sure though. I

    I can't really though because it is stuck right at back top of the esophagus. So i can't reach it from the out side. I'm going to try to get a syringe with some water in it and spray it at the chip and maybe it will make it soggy and it will go down.

    The water is a good idea but could cause choking. Have you tried a tweezers, or even a toothpick to break it into smaller pieces

    No the water worked but the toothpick seems more dangerous than some water.

    As long as you are careful. And dull the end.
