Seizures!

My tiel hen was fine when I cleaned her cage yesterday, 5 minutes later I turned and saw her rolling and flapping around on the bottom of her cage in what looked like a seizure, concerned I immediatly went to her to see what was wrong, as I got closer she did not look upset or concerned even tho she continued to thrash around on the floor of her cage. It took me a few seconds but then I laughed out loud as I realized I had overfilled her water dish and it was slowly dripping (3-5 drips a minute) and she was trying to bath in the drip... This gal is a hoot!!

Gotta love/hate those moments of panic when you realize the birds just doing something silly. Glad everything was alright! Silly girl (:

I was thinking all the same things! Glad she's just a silly girl, and of course, "Girls just wanna have fun!"
