I’m so very sorry to hear of the terrible situation your bird is in, it must be horrible torture for both of you. Has your mother given a specific reason for refusing the vet care? Im sure she doesn’t want to be cruel but maybe doesn’t realise how ill your bird is and how much it is suffering. I’m just thinking maybe she would take your bird if you could pay her back over time?
I am sorry I don’t have much advice..... to me it really sounds like your bird needs the vet or it is just a matter of time before it will need to be buried.

It really sounds bad to me I hate to say.

Well, I am very sorry to say without vet attention, the chances are not good she will get survive. Every bird needs vet care. Try to keep her comfortable as possible. Lower her perches if she is falling off.

I'm sorry but it sounds like she's critically ill and there's really no alternative to vet care in that situation.

You are doing all that you can. That’s good. Just stay with her. Is her cage in your room? If not, can you move it there?

I am going to guess you got a bird from a chain pet store. They are notorious for selling sick birds. They don’t care. I don’t go near any bird store.

I hope the other bird does not get sick, but it’s possible. Just stay with the ill bird. She should not be alone.

It sounds like she needs urgent vet care. Have you asked your mother if you can work out some kind of loan situation? I'm not sure of your age/situation but perhaps you can agree to do some extra work around the house or otherwise to work off the debt.

I’m so very sorry you and your bird are going through this. Is there another relative you can ask for vet help? Keep her very warm. Sorry nice she’s eating and drinking like crazy, could she be trying to lay an egg? Is her bum a bit swollen?
