Parakeet acting strange!

by James

My parakeet is on the bottom of the cage turning it's head around and around. I also noticed on the side of it's head the feather are missing and there is a red and inflamed hole. Is this it's ear and can it be infected. What can I do? I do not believe we have an avian Vet in Hawaii.

Parakeet acting strange!
by: Linda

As Tracie said, find an Avian Vet or a breeder there to help you. There are many parrot breeders there, and so should be a few Avian vets to help them.

Your bird may have been injured. Whatever is wrong is very bad and will result in bird's death if you don't take some kind of action very quickly.

We are sorry this is happening, so get on the phone and/or internet and find someone to help your little bird.Use the link Tracie gave you for starters.

Many Blessings to you and Family from Ours.

Sick budgie and finding an avian vet
by: Tracie

I don't know of anything you can do, but find an avian vet or a good breeder that has experience in helping birds with illnesses. (I know in some places overseas that sometimes breeders fill in when an avian vet is 5+ hours away.)

You might search on the websites listed at the link below.
