If your bird's behaviour is different in any way, it may be sick.

Common Symptoms of bird illness include:

  • Eating more than usual, or not eating
  • A change in surroundings
  • Being sleepy or appearing 'fluffed-up'
  • Change in droppings
  • Nasal discharge

If you suspect illness

Always keep your bird isolated & warm using a light for heat. A bed lamp is all you need. The bird will approach the light and move away depending on how much it needs.
Alternatively, the bird cage can be placed on the top of a hot water system for warmth.
Treat birds immediately at the onset of symptoms, as delays in treatment can be fatal. Seek out an Avian Veterinarian if the bird does not respond to treatment.
