Big change in attitude
I have a pair of cockatiels. The male sings constantly and is very happy and showy. He and the female have gotten closer and finally tried to mate for the first time yesterday and than again today. From that time the male hardly sings. He spends alot of time with his eyes closed even though he is not asleep. He is not active much at all. He goes into the next box and sings until she joins him and than goes back to just sitting with his eyes closed. He is eating very little. When the female gets close to him he is loving and will preen her or they will put their heads together and just rest a minute. I’ve tried everything to get the male back to his chirpy self including putting a millet stick in the cage daily….talking to him all day. .playing videos of other cockatiels singing and he will open his eyes for a second …look at me and shut his eyes again. His poop looks normal but small.. He seems to be in good health its just the big change in his personality
….what is going on?
