Bird losing balance and shaking
by: Tracie

It could be that the bird is having seizures. What is causing the seizures can only be determined by an in person visit with an avian vet. Dr B can not tell you what is causing this illness over the Internet.

Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird right away. Your bird has hollow bones that can easily break, until you get your bird to the avian vet, move some perches, food dish and water bottle to the lowest point in the cage so the bird doesn't have far to fall.

Keep the bird warm by covering the top and 3 sides of the cage with a light blanket. Make that appointment with the avian vet today.
