yesterday I came down to find blood spots on my cockatiels breast (Pearl), she is biting and scratching her tummy and tops of legs.
I don't think it's mites or parasites as I only one other bird, a budgie, and they don't come into contact with other birds.
Pearl is quite agitated - she is flinching and twitching - probably due to the itching.
I couldn't find an avian vet open yesterday - Sunday - and can't get an appointment till 5pm today.
I've completely cleaned out the cage and toys and changed all food and water - my budgie is fine.
I did give her a fresh cabbage leaf from my garden on Saturday, could this be it??
Please help - very worried - she's only 10 months old and so friendly.
