Arthritis in Conures?
by Saul Molinar
My Blue Crown Conure has had difficulties walking for already 6 months. In his cage, he has to hold on to the cage with his beak when he sleeps and sometimes maybe 2 to 4 times a night he falls off his stick. He gets from point a to point b in the cage with some struggling; but he's faster when getting to his serving bowl for food.
He's picky about certain bird food as well as table food. We took him to a vet and said peanuts sunflower meals were doing more harm than good to our bird. But I don't think it has anything to do with his legs. So bought him some fruity dried pallets and wont eat them. Neither will our other Sun Conure.
