I can't watch video. But if this is a young bird, it may not be fully weaned, and us begging for food.
If it's a full adult it could be weakness, or trouble breathing. Glad you are going to avain vet.

Hi, thanks for the reply. He is 6 months old, previous owner said he didnt eat much? Which I found strange. Tonight he has eaten a lot of nuts, grapes, seed etc. Doesnt seem interested in veg. My gut feeling is he hasn't been looked after very well...

Hmmmm.... I could watch but I don't have sound mine is broken.

That looks neurological, could be nutritional, or other. He doesn't look well... ( To me)

I'm so glad he is with you, and going to get good care. Hopefully others will chime in. O hope things turn out ok. Keep us updated.

Looks like normal "baby bird" stuff to me.

They aren't especially coordinated, or even "all there" mentally at this age.

They soon will be. Now is the time to socialize and bite pressure train!!!

Do it now you get mush mac. Do it later you get bruises and bite marks...
