I took my female lutino budgie Peep to the vet a while ago because she had seizures during the night. It started with a night fright then as well and I noticed that she was completely blind afterwards. The vet said that the seizures could be anything but that her eye sight is very poor and probably always has been.
Last night she had a seizure again after a night fright, I calmed her down and placed her in a small travel cage and she seemed fine again. Later she had a mild seizure again but was soon back to normal. I placed her back with the others in the morning and she seems fine.
I need advice on how to prevent this from happening as far as is possible. The birds sleep with a night light but it's certainly not enough for her since she can only see in very bright light. What should I use at the bottom of the cage? I need something that's soft since I have another bird that can't fly and she drops down hard whenever she gets scared. Any advice would be great.
I put an old thick sheet on the floor of the cage and left some music on for them on a very low volume. It worked well last night, -no night fright. I read that complete silence in nature means that a predator is in the area so that's why I left the music on. I hope this will be enough to keep them as calm as possible.
