    I have an adult bird that just started star gazing. He looks straight up, especially when stressed and starts flipping onto his back and flopping around. It started about a week ago. I don't know what triggered it. I've tried adding vitamins to the water. It doesn't seem to be improving at all. Working on finding him a quiet place to separate him. I need info on what causes this in an adult and treatments and prognosis. Will he always do this and can it be passed on to offspring. He still eats and drinks.
