Bird with hot beak.
by: Anonymous

It's summertime, so let's think about this realistically.

Your bird may be getting overheated.
Check the temp in your home. Also if the bird's cage is in front of a window or an area where it gets direct sun... the window acts as a magifier for the heat... This can cause the bird to become overheated, even cause heatstroke. I would suggest moving the cage if it's in front of the window or gets direct sun.

However; I highly suggest an avian vet. Only an avian vet can rule out illnes, diease, or genetic defects.

My Avian vet was much cheaper then I thought it would be when I took my bird in and had several blood tests and a full exam, plus vitamins for her moulting. Please take your bird in to be seen.

Birds should see a vet at least once a year to keep them in good health, and to catch illness before it becomes life threatening!

Good luck hope this helps.

Nobody can tell what is wrong over the Internet, sorry. You will need 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.
