Is my bird sick?

My 2 yo albino ringneck dove has some really foamy urate in his poop and the amount of water content has increased by a lot. He sneezes a little bit and his feathers are a little ruffled. Do you think he is sick? I'm a student so if I have to pay like 1000$ for a vet, I wanna be sure it's needed and if there's other options first.

I would take her to the vet. I understand being a student and having birds (I’m a student too) but I would rather pay the money and have my bird healthy than not.

Are all the droppings foamy like that? If more than one, I would take him to the vet. You can look into Care Credit. It's designed for vet bills, etc and charges no interest as long as you pay off within a certain amount of time.
