What is wrong with my pet cockatiel?
Question by easilyamused976: What is wrong with my pet cockatiel?
My bird has these strange “seizues” periodically. He is totally unresponsive – usually, he is very territorial but when he is having a “seizure,” he is not and doesn’t care if you touch him. When you pick him up, he feels like a dead weight. Usually these seizures last for 10-15 minutes, then he is perfectly normal again. A few nights ago, however, he was thrashing around the bottom of his cage.. he had lost his balance and his head was tilted back. we took him out of his cage and he started closing his eyes and turning his head slightly to the side. We thought this was the end, but he was still breathing. We put him in a shoebox and covered it so he could rest without hurting himself. About an hour later, we heard chirping and he was completely back to normal.
I know something must be wrong with him — does anybody know what it could be?

I have two cockatiels and neither of mine do this. You need to find a vet who specializes in birds. he may break his neck next time.
