My bird is shaking..?

by Marleigh

Hello, my macaw which is about 1 and a half years old, has been shaking for about 2 days. It also puts its leg up like it's going to sleep, and it does that all day. It sneezes some too, but has no nasal discharge. It's feet are warm, but I assume that is from standing on one foot.

It started this behavior after a vet visit to get it's wings clipped, and a general check up. I am uncertain of why. I've tried warming the house (and it is very warm), because I thought it may be cold, but it continues to shake. I've taken him outside to see if the sun would help, it didn't help either.

It's not vitamin deficient. I feed them mazuri pellets, fruits, veggies, and seeds and peanut, but only as treats.

I have another macaw too, that has been sneezing some, still no nasal discharge, but doesn't act like the other one. Does anyone know what this could be? Or have any suggestions about what to try?

Bird shaking and sneezing

You need to Find an Avian Vet to examine your birds right away. If the vet you took your bird to is an avian vet, then call that vet and tell them what is going on.
