Is she sick?

I took her to the vet on the 8th and all he asked me was weather she eats and I said yes. He then said she is cold- thats all.

I am not convinced, please tell me what you think.

1. She shivers constantly - even while she is basking in the sun.

2. The feathers on her head is up 90% of the time.

3. She sits on one spot all fluffed up much more than what she plays - when I am around.

4. When she is on my hand she makes like a baby bird continuously.

5. She sings much less.

.......................

1. She eats like normal.
2. Her poop is normal except for after she drank something.
3. She still cleans herself and baths about every 2nd day.

Yesterday and this morning I could see she wanted to go somewhere the whole time. I made it my mission to find out this morning and it turned out to be her sleeping room. She checked the whole room out and climbed in her cage. She stayed there for a about a half hour and I then brought her back to her play cage.

Re: Is she sick?

As I am sitting here she actually climbed off her cage and she walked all the way down the page to the 3rd room which is hers? She is back in her sleeping cage?

Re: Is she sick?

Oh poor Steretjie, my poor baby
I am totally confused as to what the problem could be, you read one article, then the next one contradicts the first one.

I came across a link " For Dummies", which describes a few things you have mentioned.

Reading Your Parrot's Body Language - For Dummies
Hope this is useful Linky.

I visited Zazo on Thursday morning, he is doing exactly the same as Steretjie. He was sitting in the sun shivering, from the time I arrived till I left he was still shivering ????????
Linky I know you took her to the vet on the 8th, but I would get a second opinion just to be safe.

Below is a link, re: Dr Brett Russell
& Dr Paul Forsyth, (We discussed them) their addresses and telephone numbers etc
http://www.freemewildlife.org.za/ind...=1;pg=6;ai=308

Please keep us posted all the time okay

Re: Is she sick?

Your baby is definitely not feeling good. Was this an avian vet you went to? Did they do any bloodwork? If no, I recommend you get a 2nd opinion. Please don't wait.
I recommend you keep a light on her and get the area at about 85 degress till you get her to another vet. It has been almost a week since her vet appoinment and alot could have changed. Please keep us updated.

Re: Is she sick?

I would say "trust your instincts" they are usually right.

Re: Is she sick?

I'd second the opinion on getting a second opinion

Unfortunately I don't know what to make of this in order to offer any other advice.

Re: Is she sick?

Has there been any changed like a toy from one cage placed in another etc?
Cages moved?
rooms rearranged or redecorated??
If none of these than Please see another Vet. One who is a Avian Certified Vet

Was the one you seen a Avian Certified Vet?

I ask this as recently i have found many are seeing vets that "see" birds but are not in anyway certified as Avian Vets and sadly many see few birds and have limited info.
Heck many of them actually go by what they learn online or from owners who come through their office.
I worked as a vet tech for 8 years before I became disabled and believe me this birdy is not feeling well and needs to see a proper vet.


If you need help locating one in your area I would be Happy to lend a hand if I can in locating one.
