Sitting in the corner and tail quivering

My bird tends to sit in the corner of his perch, at the opposite side of his toy. Should I move the toy? Is he sick or something else bad? He also takes a lot of naps, at least I think he does. His feathers are poofed up a lot when I come in, and his eyes are closed when that happens. His tail also quivers a lot. I don’t want him to be afraid of me, especially if he’s already learned to stop on my finger.

Have you taken him to see a vet who specializes in avian medicine? Many of the things you describe are symptoms of an illness.

Agreed, he should see a vet. Sitting in the corner, tail quivering, constantly puffed up, not active, these are all signs of sickness. Can you get him to a nearby vet? I’m just worried that if he really is sick that this can go downhill fast.

Please let us know if you need any help locating a vet near you. :hug8:

I’ll definitely take him for a check-up as soon as possible. However, I don’t know any avian vets in the area.

I’m in Brampton currently. Also, it seems that there is poop stuck to his “vent”. What can I do about this?
