As Blingy has indicated if you do not see improvement in the droppings within a few days then the bird should be seen by an avian vet.
Yes, my first budgie is still here. I haven't hand trained the new budgie, so I think I will transfer the first one to a different cage because it will be easier for me, and I don't want to spook her (I was already thinking of changing cages)

I haven't seen the female one's droppings yet, but she hasn't needed any cleaning, so I think that's good. About the vet situation, the country I am in is very small (not in north america) and there aren't really any avian vets, just normal vets for like cats and dogs. If I'm not able to get a vet to check her out what should I do?
