I have a Sun Conure (about 10 years old), and I noticed he recently sleeps on the bottom of the cage with my 1.5-year-old Sun Conure. Also, the 10-year-old Sun Conures feathers are puffed up. During the day, he usually stands on the perch and not on the floor of the cage. Further, I noticed he has a tendency to try to place his whole body into the food bowl, and using his beak, he spills all the seeds. He is eating and drinking water. Is this normal behavior due to Spring Time and possible wants to mate or a sign of illness? I had a another Sun Conures who is the brother of the 1.5 year Sun Conures and sadly he passed away this past Monday. Therefore, I am not hypersensitive to any out of ordinary bevahir. … read more
