Baby Parakeet flight

My 2 1/2 month old parakeet has never flown and spins in circles on the bottom of his cage is this normal?

The flying is not too bad an issue, but the spinning is something to worry about. Please take your bird to be examined by an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area. This sounds like nerve damage or some kind of ongoing poison or toxin in food, water or air.

Take your bird to ONLY an Avian Vet because they are the only vets licensed and trained in the care of exotics like the birds. Also be sure and tell avian vet everything about your bird, like what she eats, what kind of cage she is in, toys, perches and overall environment in your home. This sounds very much like some kind of toxin she is either breathing, eating or drinking, so make sure some basic bloodwork is done to see what it may be.

Find an Avian Vet
Otherwise, it could be a congenital defect, and my feelings still lie with some type of toxin.

Let us know what avian vet has to say and thanks for writing,
