    GCC Napping a lot but no other signs of illness?

    So I wanted to come here and get everyone else's opinions. I've had a few birds, but none have lasted long due to unfortunate reasons, so I'm still very new and over cautious.

    Hi, I’m thinking about getting a rescue Moluccan cockatoo. It screams very loud during the day and I’m not sure if it’s also loud at night. If you have any cockatoo experience with screaming during the night please let me know.

    My cockatiel, Coconut, has been very very weak lately. She's not eating or drinking and I can't force feed her because she's too weak for even that, she has what looks like seizures every once in a while but I'm not sure they are.
