Re: Tiny the cockatiel

I'm pretty sure the person who hand raised her have no idea as 1 she appears malnourished and 2 she has bacteria from being hand fed

Re: Tiny the cockatiel

I have no idea on the sex part so that you'll have to wait for a bit. I do feel she needs to be fatten up a bit before she hits her molt cycle cause that would be harsh on her. I hope the vet visit goes smoothly. I'm really curious what caused the bacterial infection as the only thing I can think of is that they weren't keeping her in a clean environment, not heated the water enough to mix with formula, let the formula get cold, etc. It's hard to say....

Re: Tiny the cockatiel

I will let you know what he says as I've only spoken to vet nurse so far and she said its likely from being handfed.

Re: Tiny the cockatiel

Bad practice most likely if that's the case! I hope the best for Tiny at least she's under your care now.

Re: Tiny the cockatiel

Seen the vet he has a high level of some bacteria which should be blue under the microscope but his is red! He said the bacteria is not common in this country. He said it's completely treatable. As for his size he thinks once we get this issue fixed he should grow. Vet seems to think I may have a little boy

Re: Tiny the cockatiel

Thanks Dusty she's going to be just fine the vet said, and she's not in any discomfort whatsoever! She's on injectable antibiotics so they kick in really quickly
