I woke up this morning and my cockatiels eye was closed, watery, and red and puffy. The area around her eye is "sticky" looking. She isn't acting any different, she just has to turn her head a lot to see me like her red eye is swollen shut. What does this mean?:bighug:

Could be an infection, could have scratched it or ??? Best to take to vet. Hope all will be well.
