Dear All, My grey parrot chick is 6 weeks (got her at 5) :gcc:and not eating as she used to(20 ml feed now each time) since 2 days(I moved her to a new big cage). She does head bobbing when I touch her beak but do not when I try to feed ( but slowly takes it). She started sleeping a lot recently and have her eyes half closed or one eye closed even while eating. She is sleeping while standing and not active at all. Please please help. Please also refer an Avian vet online
