Possible infection
by: The Avian Vet

This could be an indication of an infection, or ma be related to the amount of food being fed. You need to do two things:
1) take your bird in for an exam with an avian veterinarian who has hand feeding experience; and

2) you need to set up a phone consultation with me to discuss hand feeding and the problems you are experiencing. If you would like to set up a phone consultation, please let Tracie know.

Also please have your bird examined first and forward those records to me for review before our consultation.
