there are many illnesses that a bird can get. a few signs are if your bird is not eating or drinking enough, if your bird is sitting at the bottom of the cage a lot/ all the time . if you see any of those symtomes then you should see your local vet. 1 other symtom of being sick is if your bird is behaving differantly to what it normaly behaves.
