African Grey Keep Shutting One Eye

by Mike
(Chicago, IL, USA)

Hi, I have a 27 year old African Grey. He's been fine for years but noticed as of late that he has a tendency to close his right eye while keeping his left eye open. He's never done this before so I am a bit worried. I am considering taking him to the vet for a general check up. Has anyone any suggestions??? Please help.

Bird keeping one eye closed

I will NOT discourage you from taking your bird for yearly exams, this is best, but for this particular problem a bath might help.

Provide a shallow dish or put your bird in a deep sink with the water barely running for the bird to bathe. If something is stuck in the eye, it might come out.

If you don't have an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page.
