(Karachi,Pakistan)

Hi I have a Congo African Grey parrot who'is about 4 1/2 Months old I tried my level best to Wean him but still not fully weaned...When ever I put him in cage he gives me a tantrum (release me let me out)he jumps all over in cage untill he is exhausted on then he calms but not on perch he like to sit on the cage floor and will remain seated for the whole day with out eating,without drinking as well and he won't play with his toys too... He only eats from the cage feeder only in night other wise he remain seated on the cage floor.I fed him 40 CC Kaytee Formula in the night before sleep time after having formula I used to play with him and the put him back in the cage and there is no Tantrum behavoir after playing and formula...
He I have other bids too like Alexandrine and Cocktiel they are absulutely fine Masha Allah

CAG not well
by: Tracie

You really must call an avian vet or someone with parrot experience in your country. We don't know what is available to you there in Pakistan. I know you said there is not an avian vet near you, but you can call one for help and see what they suggest.

No Avian Vet Across the Country
by: Asif Arain

Thanks for being Concern.Let me tell you there is no avian Vet across the border and I have to treat my bird to calm down in cage before its too late for me to save him.And we have non kind of Pellets available in Karachi,Pakistan.
So I use Fresh Vegetable and fruit to wean at night Sum Bird Mix Seeds as I did with my Alexandrine Parrot he weaned at the age of 9 Weeks only.
Can you please Check the Ingredients of (Chamomila 3X) I Google it but its hard to Check your effort will be appreciated.
I started him Hand-feeding in the Morning Cause yesterday I checked his Weight and I was Shocked after seeing his weight before 15 days he was 515 grams and today He just 415 Grams so I gave him feeding in the Morning about 40 CC and since morning I haven't Put him in cage so My Wife Noticed him Eating Veggies on the Play Gym...

Bird needing help
by: Tracie

Homeopathic liquids are preserved with grain alcohol typically. You should not put anything in it's water that may cause the bird not to drink and alcohol is not safe for birds.

Please contact an avian vet, even by phone, or an experienced breeder to get help for your bird. Why chance killing your bird?

How about using Chamomilla 3x
by: Asif Arain

Hi
How about Chamomilla 3X which is homeopathy medicine to calm my CAG in his cage. If yea how much quantity should I add in his water please let me know. Will start therapy only if you say yes otherwise No.
Thanks

Editor's note: Does it have alcohol in it? If so, then I would not give to the parrot. If it is a dry pill, then it should be fine.

CAG won't Eat and Perch in Cage,Tantrum Behavoir
by: Linda

He still needs to be handfed, so start feeding him before he dies. Also, start over on the weaning process because you have not done it correctly. Some birds take longer to wean than others, and even during weaning, they still have to be handfed until they are eating what they need on their own.Once he begins to eat his food, still feed him morning and night with a 60cc syringe as this is the size your size bird needs at each meal. I also suggest you wean him onto a highly nutritious diet of organic pellets like Harrisons found here. Seeds are slow starvation for your bird, and he will be more likely to be sick a lot eating an all seed diet.

The other issue here is he may be sick which is common with baby parrots who have been moved to a new home. Have him examined for infections by an Avian Vet ONLY right away. If he is sick, he will die without being diagnosed and treated by an Avian Vet ONLY. Dog and cat vets are not licensed or trained and will not be able to help your bird.If you do not have an Avian Vet for your birds, you have to find one because when birds are injured or possibly sick, they have to be treated by an avian vet. We recommend at least yearly visits to avian vet to make sure birds are healthy and not harboring infection or other physical problems.
