canary making strange sounds and feather loss
hi my canary is about 1 years old. he is not singing anymore but making strange clicking/breathing/scraping sounds. he is also losing feathers around his neck and has been fluffing up more than he used to. he doesnt go onto the bottom of the cage, he stays on his perch. there is another canary (think it is a female) in the cage as well who is also around 1 year old but this canary seems normal. they have a very balanced diet with seeds,millet and dried fruits and varied veg and mixed fresh fruit, veg, greens, they also get some vitamins in the water. i think he has mites but wouldnt the other bird have them too? could he have 2 types of mites based on feather loss and strange breathing?
