GCC with irritated eye...

by Natasha
(Anchorage, AK)

He's a 2 yr old GCC, named Cosmo. This morning when I got him up I noticed that his right eye was not opening. He was holding it shut and occasionally would open it and then go back to holding it shut. I also noticed him rubbing that side of his little face on his perch and also scratching around his eye. I have never seen this before since I have had him. I have a feeling it may just be a scratch on his eye. Are there any common eye problems that GCC's develop? If it is in fact just a scratch on the eye, generally how long does it take for it to start to heal?

Thank you very much!

There is no telling what is wrong with your bird's eye. If it is not better by Monday, I would take the bird to an avian vet.

Dr. B can not tell you what is wrong without seeing your bird in person.
