I didn't think eucalyptus was safe because there are so many varieties that are toxic. I mean that's what I've been told. We heated a mug of water in the microwave and set it next to the cage and cover everything.

I would keep Buddy in the cage and not let him out until you see the vet. How is he acting otherwise, is he eating?
I don't see air sac mites being possible because he never goes outside and no contact with birds outside of our flock. He's a bit lathargic, and I'm not sure if he's been eating. I know Perry feeds him though. He has an appointment at 11 tomorrow morning, I just hope he makes the night to make it to his appointment.
