Conure falling from perch

I have a conure which is now 9 months old. He occassionally falls off his perch and lands on the bottom of the cage with a loud bang. Is this normal? I'm afraid he is going to get hurt.

MINE TOO.... Any helpful news
by: lkrunning

my sun/nanday conure is also doing this slipping / falling behavior/issue... I worry she'll (or he'll) break a blood feather or wing or something... Did you discover any new info other than offer a variety of perching sizes/options and a vet check>>>??

Thank you... pls respond

Bird falls from perch

You need to take your bird to an avian vet for a check up. If you don't have an avian vet yet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page.
