African Grey appearance

Is it normal for my African Grey’s pupils to be constantly dilated and fluffed up and preening often at 6months old? He often looked zoned out or confused we have 2 and the other doesn’t do this so I was wondering if it just his character or if something may be wrong.


Hi Medha,

It’s hard to know just based on what you wrote. But you know your bird best, and if you feel something if off with him, I would take him to the Vet.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
