green cheek conure's eye
by shawn espinosa
i have an eight month old green cheek who i have had for about the last four months. everything has gone well until today... i woke up this morning and noticed that the bird (simon) was closing his right eye but not his left. when i had him on my hand/finger, he would keep the right eye closed and turn around rather than open that eye for very long... looking at it more closely now, with the eye closed, the bottom half of the eyelid looks bruised. could that be possible?
he otherwise seems mostly normal. he's eating and pooping normally, no discharges from anywhere...
anyway, i hope i've given enough information and i appreciate any response i might get.
