Sick finches


One of my Zebra finch stays fluffy most of the time and is also going through molting
I’ve bought him since 2 months and it’s not that he has just become fluffy. He stays fluffy from the day I bought him. His poop color is also normal. Is there anything to be scared of?


Answer:

Hi Shadman,

There is really no way to know what might be wrong with the finch unless you take him to a Vet who treats birds. This is what I would recommend if you are worried about his health. A healthy bird is not likely to be fluffed up all the time.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
