I have a white parakeet and he is approximately 1 1/2 years old. He has been occassionally falling off his swing,and now his left eye is loosing hair. He used to be real loud and sing and squak all the time and now he doesn't. He eating habits has not changed but I am concerned that he is not his self

Parakeet falling from perch

You will need to Find an Avian Vet quickly. Your bird might have a bacterial infection, tumor or disease. There are many good avian vets in Dallas, if you don't see one suggested on the list above, there are links at the top of that page that you can use to search for an avian vet.

Do not take your bird to a dog/cat vet, because they do not have the training and experience and often accidentally kill birds.

In the meantime, please move the perches to the lowest place in the cage and move the water and food down to those perches. This way it will not get injured when it falls.
