Hi all,
I have had three brown shavers for the past 18 months. Since I bought them home they have always slept in a tree within their enclosure; at dusk they make their way up into the leaves and hunker down for the evening, come sunrise they fly down again in their ungainly way. However, for the last two days one of my girls isn't getting down. Does anyone have any ideas why she is doing this and what I should or could do about it?
Thanks in advance.

If you are not doing so already, lift it out and put it on the ground.
It could have its foot caught and it also needs to drink and eat.
Otherwise, I would wonder whether it is ill or being badly bullied with nowhere to escape to.
