A cockatiel I've been hand-feeding, around 42 days old now, is doing some foot tapping. It mostly happens when she's relaxed or about to take a nap or sleep. And sometimes, there are some head twitch accompanying it. I have read from a thread on this forum from srtiels that it may be tapeworm, but I just wanna make sure. Also, her urine is cloudy, which may indicate liver problems. The urine beside, is it normal for her to do foot-tapping? I'm gonna link a video of her doing it.

Thank you. The foot tapping is gone now since she took antibiotics. Her urine did not after 7 days of antibiotics as prescribed. Instead, I noticed that after drinking water, her urine is more clear. Would it not make more sense if it was bacterial? Her urates sometimes is stringy. But not when she did not take her formula yet and drinks water instead.
