    Signs of illness in Grey Parrots

    There are early warning signs that your gray might be becoming ill. Below are some possible / potential illness signs in an African Gray. These helpful tips are information only and are indications of a potential or possible illness.

    Any doubt in your mind, contact your avian veterinarian immediately. They are there to assist you in the care and health of your bird.

    1-Activity sudden listlessness; sleeping when it normally does not; being quiet when it normally isn't; decreased or not eating and/or drinking.

    2-Droppings ("poop") - any observable change in urates (white part) or feces lasting more than a day or two.

    3-Diarrhea - shows up as undigested food, droppings that don't have the three distinct parts (green/brown, white and liquid urine), and weight loss. If you think your grey has diarrhea, contact your vet immediately.

    4-Weight loss - your bird feels "light" when you pick it up, keel bone becomes more prominent

    5-Feathers abnormal looking feathers including things such as a prolonged molt or continuous presence of pinfeathers; unusual or dull color; broken, bent, picked or chewed feathers; fluffed up feathers all the time.

    6-Sneezing our bird makes the noise of a "sneeze" and imitates the different sneeze from each person in the house what you're looking for is "their" sneeze with a possible discharge. Look for stained feathers over the nares or around the face or vent and / or crusty material in or around the nostrils.

    7-Regurgitating / Vomiting greys and all birds regurgitate as a sign of "affection" you're looking for long periods of time which could indicate a crop infection

    8-Respiratory signs of respiratory distress can include tail bobbing up and down with each breath and a change in breathing sounds, wheezing or clicking noise when it inhales.

    9-Balance falling off its perch and huddling at the bottom of cage

    10-Eyes appear dull and / or squinting; redness, swelling or loss of feathers around the eyes.

    11-Feet scaly, flakiness, baldness or sores on the bottom of the feet

    12-Head excessive head bobbing and shaking.
