Periodically, parrots stay at the bottom of the cage---1 or
maximum 2 days then stays up in the cage and then, sometime
in the future, repeats the whole procedure. Some hang out in
the roof temporarily. If your parrot has been doing this for
a straight week or more, it's best to have it checked by a
Vet now before it's to late.
As far as age, there's no precise test, just approx guesses.
Some parrot's ages can be seen by looking at the eye and
checking the color of the iris surrounding the pupil but
that won't give an accurate age number, just a method of
whether the bird is an adult or not. You never said what
kind of parrot you're talking about?-----Dave
