Re: Canary Lurches About

    Today, 10/04/09 we woke to find our 2006 "Peaches" one of our
    8 canaries acting the same way as below on the floor in the
    avairy. I have checked him and he appears fine, nothing as a
    lump or any outward issues. Wings, feet, eyes look okay, he's
    just moving slowly, leaning toward the right and stumbles
    around. He does fly but prefers his corner spot. We've moved
    him into a flight cage separated from the others and started
    him on Ornacycline. Could it be a stroke or some type of
    seizures? Thanks, Pat
