Birds typically hide it very well when they are sick. As he's not hiding it, you might want to consider an emergency vet or avian vet. I wouldn't wait if that were Louise. Best of luck

Has he seen a vet? Unfortunately antibiotics can't heal everything and sometimes even bacteria will react differently to different antibiotics. He could be in pain?
Thanks for your advice
