Rosella Parakeet

Rosella Parakeet

I brought A Rosella Parakeet last Friday to be part of the family.She is 3 months old and was originally in an avairy with her sister.She has been fine over the weekend but yesterday i noticed she wasnt active and just sits on her perch with her head under her wing.


She isnt tame yet but i have been able to touch he since she has been like this and im really worried.Her feathers are looking dull so i brought some parakeet tonic from the local pet shop but to no avail.

I went down stairs this morning and she would not respond at all.I have put the heating on high incase she was cold as i dont know what else to do and im at the end of my teether with worry.My daughter is distraught and im so worried.Please can anyone help!!!!

First, you should never give your bird stuff from the pet stores. I killed my first bird doing that.

Please take your bird to an avian vet for an exam. Make sure it is an avian certified vet, regular dog/cat vets often kill birds because they do not have the experience or training to treat small birds.

If you need to find an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page.
