Default Blueberry doesn't look to well...

We have recently moved my pet budgie Blueberry to another room that she enjoys to be in during the summer months. I know budgies are sensitive to change so I tried to make the transition as smooth and less scary as possible. But just the next day her poop started to come out runny and small and she is all puffed up. Today is the third day of the room change and Blueberry is showing no signs of recovery, but is still somehow slightly active. I am debating if I should take her to the vet or wait it out. Also do any of you know what I did I wrong with the room change and what I should do in the future? Thanks.

It seems like this is something you do frequently (from the fact you said she liked the room in summer) so if she's had no issues before, it's unlikely you did anything wrong.

Is there any way she can stay in this room at all times, rather than moving her back and forth?

Other than being a little stressed from the move, I can't think of a reason why she'd be suddenly ill, so I think a vet visit would be best to ease your mind.

The fact that you said she is puffed up is an indication that she is not feeling well, better safe than sorry, so I would get her checked out by the vet as soon as possible.

I sincerely doubt the room change was the cause of the change in her poop and fact she is fluffed up.

I'd have her seen by your Avian Vet to be safe.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Hi,

It's been several days now...

Have you taken Blueberry to the Avian Vet yet?

What diagnosis and treatment was prescribed for her?
