Hi, my bird is on the bottom of his cage walking in circles. He can still fly.. but very disoriented. I changed his diet a couple weeks ago & the vet had said it was because of that & gave me antibiotics and told me to give him his old food back. Well he's been on antibiotics for 3 days now & eating his old food. But he's still experiencing the symptoms. Nothing has improved, nothing has gotten worse. His eyes are clear. He's keeping his feathers ruffled & is sleeping alot. Any idea what this could be? I'm worried sick.
He passed away on the 19th, it broke my heart & sorry for not updating you. I haven't really wanted to talk about it except with personal people in my life. I still have all his belongings. I haven't touched them. I feel I might adopt a lovebird around christmas if there are some available in a shelter instead of going to a breeder. Birdkee could never be replaced.. he was a very special animal to me.. however people can pass money down, valuables, houses, anything really when their time comes. Animals only have OUR love they left behind to give to another animal in need. Sorry to sound corny. Anyhow, I really appreciated your advice through everything. & with your help he was very comfortable his last week because I wouldn't have thought to put him in a home made incubator. I checked on him CONSTANTLY & hand fed him all the water he wanted as he ate on his own. It was just too late for him to make a come back.
