My finch seems to be sick
by Ashley Meleza
I've had my finch about two years and it wasn't until recently I noticed she would either sit at the bottom corner of her cage or sit on the highest perch but when she's sitting on the perch, she would breathe heavily and lay all her weight on it. She would fluff up and close her eyes.
At times she would droop her wings. Also her tail no longer aligns with her back instead it points down constantly, however she would move it back and fourth a little as if to keep balance on the perch. I'm not sure what's wrong with her. She still chirps in the mornings,eats and drinks normally, and she flies around in her cage like a healthy finch.
She takes baths in her water bowl everyday but usually she would go back and isolate herself in the corners of her cage. I'm not sure what could be wrong with her but I'm really worried for her health. Please help!
