A. If you are having to force your bird to eat, that is already a big sign that she is not feeling well. If you are seeing drooling/salivation in addition to refusal to eat or lethargy, it may indicate a serious illness. Birds are good at hiding signs of illness, so it is best to seek veterinary care ASAP if you are already seeing them. In the meantime, keeping her in a hospital cage that is warm and away from other birds (if you have them) is best to let her rest and recover some until she can receive treatment.
