Canary fluffed up

Canary fluffed up

hi there, so my canary was all chirping and singing today morning. I put him to sleep in the afternoon and when he got up he was all fluffed up, pressed against the rod and sitting. I checked him for signs of illness but i saw none!
his right leg is warm and he keeps pulling at his leg. It's like he's trying to take something out:s He's had a history of bumble foot, but i don't see any signs of that. he was just fine a few hours ago :( he did'nt eat since he's been up

please help

He's been in that position since he woke up..

Dr B can not help you with this, because he can not examine your bird or prescribe a treatment. Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird right away.

Also, you need to replace the wooden dowel perches in the cage with natural wood branches to prevent bumble foot and other leg and foot problems.
