I recently adopted two beautiful male zebra finches. They settled in pretty quickly and get along great. They’ve been eating and drinking and flying around the cage. Everything has been going great. I have noticed one of them sitting on the bottom of the cage. He doesn’t have fluffed feathers, closed eyes, or any of the other symptoms of illness. I just wanted to check why he is doing this or if it’s normal. Thanks!
Welcome to the forum! I wish I knew more about birds. Can your local veterinarian help?
