Amazon parrot

My bird fell 3′ on 2 Feb. Since then he sleeps lot, is listless, and doesn’t play. He hurt one foot and can no longer hold his food, but he eats eagerly if I hand feed him.

Often when he sleeps his head hangs forward below his perch, as low as the end of his tail. I don’t recall this behavior in the past. ???


Hi Lisa,

Your bird needs immediate veterinary care. He obviously sustained injuries when he fell and it sounds like he is in a lot of pain. Please take him to an Avian Vet as soon as possible.

Thank you,
