nose bleed

by Heidi Gilmore

Also, he is a very picky eater. He generally eats mainly "junk" food (the seeds) and pushes his pellets out of his bowl. Could the deformity and nose bleeds be from a nutritional problem? If so, how can I get him to eat more healthy? He's so impossible that I am forced to shave his calcium chew bar over his food to make sure he gets enough because he won't use it.

Bird with blood in nare

Dr B can not tell you what is wrong without examining your bird. You need to get your bird to an avian vet soon.

Dr B has a Switching Birds to Pellets article he would like you to read also.

For our new birds, once they recognize pellets as food, in other words eat a pellet, then we change the feeding routine. We only give pellets in the morning, when they are the hungriest, and then add see after lunch sometime.

This way they wake up very hungry and will likely eat the pellets, because there is not any "junk" food to eat.

Please make the appointment with the avian vet today and let us know how things go.
