My double yellow headed amazon cries
by: lorraine

I inherited this bird 7 mos ago he was only given sunflower seeds and peanuts I have slowly added fruit and veggies I have that down to 2 fruits (ie 1 lg grape 1/4th of apple) a day and 3 veggies a day and vit pellets alsothe no salt sunflower seeds. His poop is fine. Also in research I think he is a she. i remember my mother saying that every once in awhile sounds like he was crying. They never worked with him I am guessing she is about 40 years old. She was in a small cage and know have her in an extra large cage. She has bit me a few times the only thing I can do is reach in the bars of the cage and try to pet her. I am falling in love with her feel bad when she cries. it only happens once a month or everyother week. if I go pet her she gets right over it when I sit down she starts again I pet her again then she quites. I dont want her in any pain. Thanks Lorraine Charlie/Charlene

You did not provide much information. Is this something new the bird is doing? Have you had the bird long? Is your bird eating 80% pellets and only 20% healthy treats, so that it is eating healthy? Is there something new in it's environment?

If this is a new behavior, then it is a good possiblity it doesn't feel well and could be sick or even have a disease. It could be something toxic you fed it, it could be it is copying a sound it has heard too.

If you can not determine the cause of a new behavior like this, then you must take the bird to an avian vet to make sure it is healthy.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
