My lovebird has seizures or fear
(West Palm Beach, Fl)
I have two healthy lovebirds about three years old. One of them has started having odd behavior when I pick up the cage and move it.
He grabs the bars with his wings, his heart beats furiously, and then his eyes start to droop and close. He'll try to fly from the perch and flutter to the bottom of the cage.
If I move the cage very slowly and carefully this doesn't happen.
Could he be traumatized by a car ride/move that happened six months ago? Thats the first time I noticed it. Fear? Or is he having a seizure based on the movement? And what should I do? He calms down after five or ten minutes and returns to normal. The other bird acts fine. Thank You!! Bird Lover
