I'm taking Charley, my Hahns Macaw, to my avian vet. He just hasn't seemed like himself the last few days and I'm worried.
He's eating and pooping just fine, but he stopped talking and he doesn't play with his toys at all. This is totally out of character for him. He's sleeping a lot more too. He doesn't seem weak, hasn't lot weight, and gets around his cage without any problems. He's still sweet and affectionate with me, but just doesn't answer me when I talk to him. Before, he'd be talking and playing most of the day.
The only noise he makes is kind of a squawk and at the same time, he jerks his head up and back a little. I've felt his neck and head and checked his upper and lower beak and all looks fine. His eyes look alert and clear and his cere is clean and dry. He hasn't fallen or injured himself either.
I'm at a loss as to what it could be, so I need the vet to check him out. The technician at the vet's office said "You know your bird and you know when something isn't right."
The earliest appointment I could get was Tuesday (tomorrow) at 4 p.m. Please keep my baby in your prayers. I love him so much!
JoAnne, Libby (2/10),Angelina (12/07), and Charley (11/10)
