My cockatiel max is shaking and his eye is twitching... I think he might be sleep deprived tho as my parents were up at 12 in the room the birds sleep in...
I am very worried... Please reply as soon as possible
I know of birds who sleep super late, but then their owners tell them sleep in till later too. What time does Max get up/ do you wake him up? Cockatiels need about 10-12hrs of uninterrupted sleep every night, so if he isn't getting to sleep till midnight then dont wake him up till 11-noon the next day over. Alternatively you could maybe move where he sleeps; I had to move my Alex from the laundry into my bedroom because my family just couldn't watch tv without the volume really high up and that was bothering him.
Both my birds get really aggressive if they don't sleep enough, but they do also eat more, sing/talk less and try to take naps through out the day. Good luck with Max. A trip to a vet may be in order since the eye twitching is kinda weird.
Best thing you could do otherwise is talk to her and spend time with her , When your ready you might want to get another tiel for her she will probably be lonely for awhile since tiels usually bond and mate for life
Thats great to hear hun glad he put her on antibiotics just to be safe better safe then sorry =D Hopefully she does okay with losing her mate but if your there with her it should help ease her at least some
It's very unlikely that you'd be carrying a disease he had. There are only a few diseases that are transmissable from birds to humans, and you likely would have seen more symptoms from him or yourself. It does sound like he had some kind of neurological crisis.
Since it seems like you're covering all your bases, you might review your birds' diet to rule out/prevent liver or kidney issues. If you post here what you feed them, I'm sure you'll get lots of advice.
I'm very sorry for your loss, and thank you for taking all the precautions to protect your other bird.
