pick a active bird, try to see it eat, make sure eyes are clear and not wattery, not sleeping on bottom of cage, or just laying there all puffed up in general. those are a couple ways to tell but one of the problems with birds is u dont always no there sick as soon as they get it

A check up with an avian vet is always a good idea, before you introduce the new bird to Rocko.
