Message:We have a Nanday Conure named Fred that is about 20 years old.  Around Thanksgiving Fred started acting as though he were sick (or acoustically dying) as he was not himself; he seemed to need assistance from his beak to hold himself on his perch.  Thankfully he is still here, but still not himself.  He is eating, drinking and seems to be digesting well.  He seems unsure on his feet and is sleeping a lot.  If I hold him for a while he seems to gain energy as if he is relieved that he doesn't have to hold himself up and can just relax and sleep.  Once I put him back in his cage tonight, he started to climb to a perch and fell into his water dish that we had moved to the bottom of the cage so he didn't have to climb to get to it.  Once I got him out of the water dish he proceeded to climb the side of the cage to get to higher perches.  He proceeded to fall to the bottom of the cage yet again.  I'm not sure if this could be contributed to old age or if I should take him to a vet to be checked. If anyone has any advice or insight I would greatly appreciate it.  thanks
