Re: Can Birds get ADHD?

I swear, all 3 of mine are pure GENIUSES.

They can all manipulate without me being aware of it - well, most of the time anyways.

Re: Can Birds get ADHD?

If birds can be depressed, have anxiety disorders, etc, I don't see why they couldn't have ADD or ADHD, although, remember this; Birds have the mental abilities and maturity of a toddler-preschooler. Most children that age are too young to be diagnosed with ADD or ADHD as their behaviors naturally appear to favor those disorders because they haven't developed well enough to control impulses and such.

I have a daughter with ADD

Hehe welcome! But it's true; cuddling and then, BAM!, they want to eat your hand.
