Hi. My female zebra finch is currently unwell. I'm phoning the vet this afternoon, but I just want a bit more information before I go.
Yesterday she was completely fine. She was zipping about like she usually does, but this morning I noticed she was sitting in the feed bowls. I thought that she was getting broody, but when I moved her to clean out and give them fresh food she went straight to the floor, then after she flew up and fell head first into the other feed bowl and didn't seem to want to move. So I've moved her into a small cage and put her in a seperate room where it's quieter and away from the other birds.
I think the thing that confirmed to me that she wasn't well was the fact that I could pick her up in my hand and she'd just tuck her head in to sleep.

I was wondering If anyone could tell me what I can do with her until I get to see the vet. So far she has her normal food and some water in her cage, I also put a clean folded up face cloth on the bottom of the cage for her to rest on.
