My name is ***** ***** I am a Veterinary Technician for over 35 years.
Do you have a small carrier that you use to take him to the Vet in>
If not do you have a small cardboard box available?
How long did the seizure last?
Did he fall or bang into something in the cage?
Let me explain about seizures. There is the pre ictal period the time prior to the seizure. the ical which is the actual seizure and post ictal which is the period after the seizure. This is the time we need to put him comfirtably into a confined space where he cannot hurt himslef where it is dark and very quiet. Lights and noises can trigger a seizure. This is why I suggested a carrier or a box that is lined with something soft and keep him in a darkened room with no noice until he can be transported to an Avian Vet.
A seizure is an electrical storm in the brain. The more he has and the longer they last can injure his brain as well as his neurological system. He needs to be seen by the Avian Vet for full evaluation. I suggest you take his see or pellets with you to make sre there is nothing in it causing the seizure. They will do blood work and Neurological exam.

I urge you to have him seen by the Avian Vet today if possible.
Please reply to discuss this information or concerns.
I want to add in this post Ictal period he may be unresponsive, weak and out of it. This is not unusual for a post ictal period, but it is also a time he can hurt himself and he is very weal and vulnerable.
I hope this information is helpful. My goal is to give you the best information and the best service possible,
If you cannot do a box, remove the perches from the cage and put food and water within reach, cover the cage and move to a dark quet room.. The description sounds like part of a seizure all neurological issues. He needs to be seen by anavian Vet as soon as possible.
There is no home treatments and the Vet can determine if he needs medication. Each seizure is hard on his brain and body.
Did you have any further concerns? When I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my serviice positive.
You can also use a small Pet Taxi carrier used for Cats and other small animals for transport if lined with towels.
You are very welcome! I hope all goes well with the Vet visit.
