I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Rocky, please? Which type of bird is he? You appear to be describing a seizing bird that would need the attention of an avian vet who would sedate Rocky with an anticonvulsive drug such as phenobarbital.
