Woke up this morning my male is not looking to good.
He was good last night and this morning he is puffed on the perch as if he is cold with his head curled up in his back.
l worm & delice him every 3 months or so.
Now he is in the nesting box still puffed up and angry with his mate and the babies.
l would like to take the babies out but they are not eating by them self yet just came out of the box a few days ago.
So l might take him out.
Any idea what could be wrong with my man.
If you remove either of the parents the other takes over.
How long since de wormed and deliced?
What method do u use?
Worming and delicing regularly without checking if actually required is un healthy for long live. Most Worming and delice chemicals do have a long term detrimental effect on animals.
Other than that, the symtoms could be any one of many issues...which may require blodd tests to establish what is wrong.
In the mean time keep him warm, a little apple cider vinegar in his veggies. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
4 months ago was the last time he got wormed & nearly 12 months ago sprayed him for lice coz he had lice.
l give the worm syrup by eye dropper into the beak just a few drops that how the vet said they do it.
And l just spray him with the lice spray when l see them scrathing there heads on the cage or with there feet.
He has come out of the box for a feed now that it's getting dark but all his head feathers are rough up like he is wet but he is dry but he is not as puffed up as this morning.
He is warm inside the house.
