acting strange recently.

I have a 3 year old reed crowned amazon and recently he/she puffs up around the legs and makes gagging noises. He/she also makes weird like shrill noises. I don't know what is going on but it worries me because he/she freaks out. He/she tries to get on my finger but will struggle to do so. He/she usually bites hard when he/she is irritated but that won't even hurt when he/she is in this condition.

Acting strange recently.
by: Sandra D Singh

Hi Yvette, I think that your Amazon is very ill and needs help. You should take him/her to an Avian Vet immediately before it's too late. Your bird seems to be in plenty pain; poor little baby. I do hope that you do take him/her to the vet and he/she gets well soon. Take care and God bless!

These are indications of illness or disease. Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
