Older conure spending alot of time on cage bottom
by Richard Novara
Larry is a 20 year old green cheek and periodically spends vast ammounts of time on the bottom of his cage. Normally he tears up the newspaper or throws around his little plastic balls with a bell inside but as of late he seems to be more tired than usual. He dosen't seem ill or lethargic but he's definately not himself. Is there any truth to feather production and this behavior? He did this last year also. I'm concerned but not worried. Please help out if you can. Thankyou. Also he will sleep on the bottom.
