Make sure the bird is breathing well (not wheezing or straining).
Eyes should be clear and clean.
Feathers should be shiny with no bare spots.
The bird should be alert and aware.
Feel the bird’s breast bone to check its weight. A protruding breast bone means the bird is underweight and could be ill.
