Subject:Re: Winston is so calm
Message:Hi Jacque,

He might just be a calm bird, settling into his new routine, or he might be sick. Some birds are quiet at first until they are comfortable in their surroundings. The best thing to do is to take him to an avian vet and get a full exam done.

I volunteer for a rescue org and take quite a few fosters into my home. My experience is usually that if they are too quiet and sweet, there is usually a reason for it and a vet visit (important that it is an AVIAN vet) uncovers the reason. I know they are feeling better when they start getting fiesty again :) Better to take him to the vet and be safe.

Good luck with him!
