Hello this is rather irelevant but i would like to know whether my baby silky will die. It is sleeping constantly, wont open its eyes, does not eat alot and is weak and shaky..... What do i do? and willl it die?

Editor's note: If you want people to see and answer, you need to post a question, not an answer here to another question, at Parrot Questions

You will need to Find an Avian Vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.

Sick Bird
by: Linda

Ashley, you need to take your bird to an Avian vet in your area to be diagnosed and treated. The fact that your other one died sounds like a bacterial or viral infection.

You have to take bird into an Avian vet as regular vets for dogs and cats are not licensed to treat birds of any kind as they are special and have to have a special doctor.

Depending on what is wrong with bird, you will need to give meds and you need to clean up area where he lives to clean out any infection as bird will get sick again going back into an environment still covered in sickness.

Keep us posted and thanks for writing. Do not delay taking your bird to Avian vet, as he will die from whatever is wrong just like the other one did.
