she seems to twitch more when you put a blanket over her cage in the night time,this has happened for the last week only.We cleaned cage and got rid of that blanket straight away but all though there has been a marginal improvement she is still not well.
we do shower her once every 10 days or so. And in the eight years this is the first time we have had this problem she has been happy and cheerful upto now.
the blanket has been outside with her to shield her from direct sunlight when she gets some fresh air in the cage. Obviously there has been other wild birds in the area but not up close.
Also she has been molting for a longer time than usual before she became unwell.She has got a lot of feathers growing at the moment as well including one or two on her red bald spot.
