Except when a bird has an obvious injury, it is often not easy to tell if the animal may be sick. Budgies and many other birds hide their infirmities as long as possible. That results in the fact that even very attentive owners often do not notice a beginning illness in time.

In general, it is important that bird owners know their animals as well as possible and observe them regularly.

Every bird owner should be familiar with these hints. They are presented in several detailed articles, see the list below.
