Bird tilting head to one side

Dr B would not be able to tell you if this is a defect or a health issue without a physical exam anyway, so he suggests that you Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to rule out infection and disease.

Hopefully your breeder is a reputable breeder that takes their birds to an avian vet for health checks. Ask your breeder what avian vet they use.
