;( , is it sick or not ? ps. Some of her poop is watery


Answer:

Hi,

It sounds like your bird is very sick and needs to be taken to an Avian Vet immediately. Birds can succumb to an illness very quickly so it is important to take a bird to the Vet at the first sign of illness. You can cover all but the front of the cage with a light towel or cloth to help keep her warm. You can use a heating pad set on low under the cage or place a light near the cage to keep her warm until you can get to the Vet.

Take care,

Brenda
