It 's been a few days since I found Lizzy in the garden and took her to a vet.. The vet gave her antibiotics beacause her stool was green and told that she looks like a female cockateil.. I gave her grains and fruits for food , the antibiotics with her water , some toys and even pet her time to time daily... But in the morning when I came to check on her , her left wing was slightly open and shaking... Is it normal Or should I take her to the vet..?

How is she otherwise? What does her poop look like? It could be she is a little cold. How about her wing - does she permit you to touch her?

Poop being abnormal could be due to antibiotics. Is she sleeping ok?
Her poop was green even before we gave her antibiotics....she sleeps when we are not around. I think She sleeps enough she is energetic , walks around and play with toys.

Does she fly or are you keeping her grounded? If you are sure that she is warm enough she may just be excited since she has just recently joined your family. Keep her diet consistent and just watch. Cockatiels are known for hiding their illness.

You are welcome. I wonder if her wing(s) were not clipped properly. It does happen.
Today my dad took out her from the cage after a lot of chasing inside the cage , to take her to a vet. When they got there her wing was back to normal and she could flap them. There were 43 pet owners in the line so we bought her back home. Turns out her wing was just dislocated and when my dad grabbed her it got fixed. she is fine now and can flap her wings normally. :) I'm relived now that she is in good health again....
