    Hi,
    I recently had a friend's bird die. The symptoms were strange, sudden floppiness, cold skin, eyes shut, mouth stubbornly shut, and weak. We pried open her beak and dripped in sugar water as well as warming her against our bodies to warm her up, when she wasn't held she was under a heat lamp, she wasn't very skinny and was only 2 1/2 years old. If anyone has any idea what happened to her please reply[​IMG]
    Thank you
