Hello!
My 2 (ish) year old budgie, Pierogi, has randomly taken a turn for the worse overnight. He is still eating and drinking (less than usual but still doing it) but is very lethargic and fell off his perch earlier. I can’t get to a vet for a few days, I’ve been keeping him warm in a travel cage so that he doesn’t fall, is there anything else I can do? I’m worried he may not make it till we can see a vet that takes birds :sad8:

I am so sorry your bird is showing signs of illness. Best to get the to vet ASAP. You are already doing what is needed, the warmth and lower perches. Put his food and water in a flat dish on the bottom of the carrier so he can reach into it better than a bowl. Please update us when you can.

If your vet is out of town or no appointments available, call and ask for an emergency clinic address you can go to. Or search for another vet.
While we like to see our regular vets, I think a different vet is better than no vet at times like this.
I hop you find somewhere who can see him soon.

Most likely this bird was sick before you got him. I am very sorry this happened.
