Hi, My conure is almost 28 years old and about 6 months ago I noticed him on the bottom of his cage and he was acting like he couldn't climb back up (3-4 feet) to his perch/nest box where is normally is. I picked him up and then he seemed fine so I thought maybe he just wanted to be down there. I found him down there again about a month or so later. I figured he is just getting old and losing his balance so I ended up placing some shade cloth and cut his cage in half so if he fell again, he wouldn't fall far. I have found him on the bottom (18" above his perch now) at least once, maybe twice. He does seem to prop himself at times next to his nest box but a lot of times he is totally free and moves all over his cage just fine. I have noticed he tilt his head to the side to drink water and sometimes while he is just sitting there but it's not all the time. He also sleeps a lot more and I notice him dozing off during the day, and doing funny mouth movements like he is snoring or like an old person. He is eating very well and generally seems in good health. I am wondering if maybe he had a stroke or this is just part of him getting old - or if I should maybe take him to the vet. When I called them they said it could be a number of things but there may not be a lot they can do about it. It's been 6 months or so now soi I don't believe it's an infection and it's not gettign any worse. Anyone out there have very senior birds and have experienced this? Thoughts?
