Expert:  Dr.Lisa replied 7 years ago.


Your bird is having a medical emergency and needs to go to a vet.


Please put your bird in a padded, darkened carrier while you are making preparations to take him [who may be a 'her', and who may be having reproductive problems] to the vet. Here is a link to help you find one: Please make sure that food and water are easily available.
