Green cheek conure too fat?
Hi, I have a GCC, Gem, she's about 18months old. Lately, after she's flown about 4 laps at high speed around the lounge room, she will land & act like she's having a stroke/seizure.
She comes good about 30seconds to a minute later, but when it happens, it's rather scary, I'm worried she's going to keel over dead
My daughter tells her "see Gem, you're too fat to fly". She's not an over weight bird.
She's boisterous, bossy & full of personality & has always flown without these strange episodes.
Any ideas what would be causing them?
She kinda can't get her footing, holds her wings open & is rigid.
