When choosing a bird, make sure it’s healthy; a sick bird is no bargain no matter the price. Do not choose a bird that makes clicking sounds when they breathe. In most cases, birds show symptoms of sickness when the disease is quite advanced. Sick birds appear tired, ruffled or droopy and hide their heads under their wings. Droppings stuck to a bird’s tail feathers is not a good sign. If your bird has any of the above symptoms, take her to a vet immediately. Take caution when introducing new birds to your bird. May birds harbor contagious disease-causing organisms. Place the new bird in an isolated room for a certain period of time.
