Default Cockatiel seems unwell of a morning some times.

For quite a while my Cockatiel has had strange episodes. She seems disoriented and unsteady, sometimes shakey, sitting on the bottom of the cage. It doesnt last for more than an hour or two. Then shes fine again.
This was happeneing only every now and then, like once every few months.

Lately she has had these 'episodes' more frequently. A couple of days in a row at one stage. Mostly of a morning.

Anyone have any ideas ?

I second the vet thing. It's not normal for tiels to sit at the bottom of the cage, so that is a sign that something is definitely wrong.

Its been like this on and off for a number of years. The first time it happened we took her to a vet and the vet couldn't find anything wrong, or explain it.

Im no expert but I would think it is a neurological problem. I just wondered if anyone else had experienced the same thing.

She could have an underlying illness or it may be nothing (I doubt this though), but you won't know until you get some proper tests done. Cockatiels are extremely good at hiding illness, so the fact that you are noticing symptoms is alarm bells ringing to me.
