Hi, I bought a two month old cockatiel 5 days back. It was initially very scared. Now it is no more that scared but it sleeps a lot. Most of the time it dozes off and kind of inactive (I have budgies too, which are always very playful).
It did not eat much on first 2-3 days. It was on seeds diet in the pet store. I tried to introduce millet spray, oats and fruit. The bird liked millet spray and oats mostly. But I noticed a change in dropping color agter introducing new food. It was green initially and now it’s kind of deep brown. I am scared if my bird is not keeping well and whether I should get it to some vet. I never had cockatiel before. Please advise.
