    Hi all,

    Here's a strange one. Just got in a blue blackmasked lovie
    female. Her head goes sideways!! Not just now and then,
    but all the time. Background history is that she was a
    breeder for two years - supposedly his best one. One night
    she was fine and sitting her eggs, next morning her head is
    going sideways! Her coordination is a bit off but that's
    to be expected from a sideways view of the world. She's
    eating and drinking fine. She seems to get around her cage
    just fine, even flies up to the swing perch. The breeder
    retired her when he found that whenever she climbed in and
    out of the nest box, she was just clumsy enough to break
    her own eggs.

    He didn't see her fly into anything, had just had a vet
    check on his breeders a month or two prior to this. We're
    giving her her permanent home in retirement.

    Any ideas anyone? as to what - besides flying into
    something - may have caused this? Do lovies get
    neurological problems thru genetics? But no matter the
    answers, she'll still stay here, unless it turns out to be
    an illness that's contagious. Then we have to think of the
    rest of the flock in the house. She's really a good
    looking bird, the sideways thing just seems to add to her
    personality! Rowena
