shock, fungus possible
I work in a pet shop and I'm concerned about a cockatail that has been in our care for two weeks. He is the sweetest bird ever, until about a week ago and we sold the companion. We didn't realize they boded so quickly and he hasn't been the same since. He is puffing up and squawking all the time. I mess with him trying to get him out of that mindset and it works until I have to put him back in. Now every time I walk by he sees me and squawks. Soon after the sell of the other bird his been started to turn dark in places like a fungus. It is getting worse and so is his need to cuddle. I don't know how to help him. A vet told me not to mess with him since we really don't know what is wrong. Is there anything I can do? I can't let him get attached to me too.
