I am an owner of an INDIAN RINGNECK. Mine is young less than a year old. Your bird is very ILL, imagine a FLU on a NEWBORN. Even though your BIRD is 12 years old, IT WOULD MEAN just as FATAL! Please take your BIRD to AN AVIAN, not a DOG or CAT HOSPITAL. YOU need an EXPERT or your BIRD will NOT SURVIVE this! Also, refrain from MILK. Unfortunately, this will not settle well with him/her especially while sick. Stick to the HEARTY VEGGIES, HEALTHY PELLET DIET, MILLET, FRESH FRUIT, keep cage CLEAN, keep bird away from STRONG CHEMICALS. I'm sure you know of this already. GOOD LUCK and let us KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

Hello Shashi,
Please take your bird to an AVIAN VETERINARIAN as soon as possible. Your bird seems to be really ill so do NOT delay but act immediately; take NO chances with him please.

Parrot is sick, don't feed it milk
by: Tracie

Do NOT feed your parrot milk! Parrots are lactose intolerant and it does not provide the proper nutrition either.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
