Thank you, I don't think tube feeding is necesary at this point
I have a bit of an update.
I actually took him outside today whilst I sunbathed (in his cage and half covered) and he has perked up a bit since then.
He has also gone to sit with the other budgies outside their cage, he isn't singing but he seems a bit livlier. He has also eaten some millet and quite a bit of seed when I wasn't looking, I checked the husks. And when I came into the room he was preening.
