Cockateil Throat Flutter

by Brittany

I have a 4 week old cockatiel and it always flutters or kinda vibrates its throat. Especially if its resting. It'll close its eyes, open its beak just a little bit to where you can see its toungue wiggle and flutter its throat. I've had 15 cockatiels and never seen this before. Any ideas?

He may be too hot. He may have a respiratory infection. He may have aspirated formula. I recommend that he be examined by an avian veterinarian.
