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?


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,
