Sick Bird
by: Linda

Sorry to hear about the little one's problems, and it sounds like the baby is sick with some kind of infection. The mother will also need to go into the Avian Vet's office as soon as you can get them there. Baby birds don't last long with infections, and it sounds like an infection is present. Please call an Avian vet in your area and make appointment to bring mother and baby in for a checkup. You'll be glad you did!

Keep us posted on what vet has to say because your experience can help other people with their birds. Thank You for writing,
