LoveBird acting very strange

by Mario

I have a three year old peach face love bird who normally is cheery hanging out on the top of her cage. however recently she's been at the bottom of her cage and when I reach in to get her she lifts her wings above her head and lifts her tail up.

When I looked at her rear she looked like she was trying to push something out and would occasionally have enormous droppings larger than a normal lovebird dropping. I'm worried, she continues this constantly and where I live there are no avian vets. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Lovebird may be sick

You really need to find a vet for your bird. Dr. B can not help you since he can not examine your bird. Dr. B suggests you find a vet even if you have to drive a couple of hours to get to the vet.

Below are two sources you can use to find an avian vet to go to.



Also, this vet listed on our Find A Breeder list does phone consultations:

Chaparral Animal Health Center - Dr. Dave McCluggage

Comments: Dr Dave has been my HOLISTIC AVIAN vet for around 4 years. I'm in Canada so I PHONE CONSULT with Dr Dave for my birds
