Parakeet has unusual "tick"!?!
We adopted a parakeet (Lil' Joe) from a neighbors friend a couple years back. The woman claimed the bird was 12 years old though it seemed more like a very young bird. She has admitted to throwing things at it, so we dont know if that has anything to do with the birds unusual condition. The bird is constantly opening and closing its beak. Almost never stops. Could it be the abuse that caused the birds unusual condition or could it be something medical?
