My 10 year old Senegal will sometimes sleep while hanging upside down on the side of her cage. Is this normal? Thanks in advance, Renee'

Well, it does not sound very comfortable, and as for whether normal or not, this varies from species to species.

If it has been more than a year since your bird's last Avian Vet visit, then go ahead and take her to be examined to make sure she is not harboring infections or other physical issues. Birds cover up their illnesses until they are too sick to stand which usually means a dead bird. We recommend yearly visits to make sure birds are kept in good health.

Thanks for writing and let us know what avian vet has to say about your bird's health. If she turns out to be healthy with no physical issues, then this way of sleeping appeals to her. I'd check her out if it was me because if she does have some problem physically, better safe than sorry.
