Bird with prolonged feather fluffing
by: Tracie

If your bird sits puffed up most of the time, and is not active the other times, then it is sick. A bird can stay puffed up for more than an hour and be completely healthy though. Put some white paper towels under the grate to catch the poop, so you can see if the droppings look normal.

If your bird has not been seen by an avian vet, and given a well bird certificate before being sold, then I suggest you Find an Avian Vet to examine the bird.

Please read our Switching Birds To Pellets article and other training and health articles on our Parrot Training page if you are a new bird owner.
