    Aloha,
    I have a 8 month old Orloff who was biten by a centipede. It bit her on her face and since then her lower lids are always closed and she is not eating or drinking. We are hand feeding her. She has some and stuff in the corners of her eyes and greenish dropings. I started her on antibiotics. We love her but this is no way for her to live! Any info would be great...

    You can take her to the vet or wait it out, keeping her fed & hydrated. She will either get better or not. Put something on the bite to keep infection at bay but nothing with the word Caine in it as it's very dangerous for birds. Sorry, that's I've got for now...good luck & hope she recovers.
