Signs of Illness in Birds

As with any pet, it is important to recognize signs of injury or illness in your bird.

This skill is particularly important with birds, as they often hide signs of sickness and typically have lower tolerances to disease and a reduced ability to survive certain infections or injuries than cats or dogs. Monitor your feathered friend closely to detect any subtle changes that may indicate sickness, including:

Fluffed feathers

Change in eating habits

Change in amount of water drank per day

Weakness or lethargy

Drooping wings

Nasal or eye discharge

Tail bobbing with each breath to display difficulty breathing

Abnormal beak color or texture

Swollen joints

Not perching, sitting at the bottom of the cage

Change in consistency or color of droppings

Like rabbits and pocket pets, a major factor in keeping your bird healthy is providing a clean, tidy enclosure and engaging in routine preventive care.
