Budgie unable to grip on perch
Yesterday i found my budgie on the floor of the cage leaning forward with his tail in the air. I put him in another cage, as the female kept attacking him, they were usually very close.
I took him to the vet, who gave him painkillers, and said he could have had a fit.She checked for broken bones, but couldnt find anything wrong. He is very wobbly, but ok in himself, he is eating and drinking ok. He can fly, but cannot grip anything, bars of cage or perch. He gets out of breath easily, he is making little noises, but the trouble is, he keeps trying to climb the bars of the cage at night, to roost. He hangs on with his beak, as he cannot grip, then falls to the floor, which i have padded with several layers of cloth, and made a little 'nest' with an old soft tea towel. Not sure how to get over the 'wanting to nest' problem?
