How are you feeding this baby? A lot is going to depend on whether you are used to feeding by syringe, spoon feeding or gavage feeding (sp?). It sounds like your food was either too thick or too cold and couldn't be "processed" as needed. There isn't necessarily an easy answer for this because it depends on the cause of the problem. If the food was too thick or too cold sometimes giving them a very small amount of warm water can help warm and thin it and allow it to be processed but if you don't know how much, what temperature, or how to administer it you can asphyxiate the baby or cause it to inhale and cause aspergillosis (a form of mold based pneumonia) to form and cause the baby to die a slow and painful death. The best bet again would be to contact one of the vets I suggested. If you take your baby bird to one to be checked out "most" will allow you to call about problems such as this and give you a much better one on one answer or be able to have you bring the baby in for more help.
