jenday conure lost his voice???
We bought our beautiful Jenday conure Mango in November. He turned 1 at the end of december. About 3 weeks ago, Mango seemed to be ill. He was very lazy, listless, not playing, fluffed up...and he developed what sounded like laryngitis. He would make these high pitched squeaky noises, very scratchy sounding. We brought him to the vet, and everything including his throat culture came back negative. He has slowly returned to normal behavior- except the voice. Also, it isn't all the time. He still screams sometimes and makes his little attention-getting noises when he's in his cage. But when he's sitting on our shoulder, he makes these horrible raspy squeaks and bobs his head, kind of like a baby bird eating from its parents. We are so confused! Any thoughts anyone?
