Cockateil on cage bottom
by: Tara

Our female birds will sit on the floor when they are getting ready to lay an egg. They get very protective of their cage too. Even if there is not a male they can still lay eggs and will protect them even if infertile.
But since you just got her you should take her to an avian vet to know for sure.

Is bird sick?
by: Tracie

It is impossible to know, without an avian vet examination, but sitting on the bottom is concerning. Also concerning is that you do not have a grate to keep the birds from walking in their poop.

If your bird doesn't start perching by the next day, please take your bird to an avian vet, or at least let your breeder know what is going on. Your breeder should have had the bird examined before selling it to you.
