Mango is at the vet's, undergoing several tests. The vet said
there could be several reasons, one being hormonal changes. The
one test did show that Mango's stats are fine - the basics.
They are going to do lab tests on skin samples to rule out
bacterial skin infections and also on some of his feathers for
something else. What's been so puzzling is that Mango has still
been eating and singing as he usually does - a little cranky
when taken out of the cage, but otherwise eating and singing.
We're also having the sexing blood test done so we'll officially
know if we have a he or she. Thanks for the heads up! Will let
you all know what the vet ends up finding out.
