JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the bird. What is the bird's name and age?
Customer: i have had her for 4 years and normally i let her have the house except night time when i put her in the cage cover and that is about it, i believe she may be about 7 years old

Customer: cheeky
