My female budgie piku is vomiting. This was from many months. First she vomited undigested whole seeds with a sticky clear fluid. It then stopped after some days while her poop was unusually dark green. she then became normal.

She vomited again a few months ago. The same thing with fluffed up feathers. I checked it with the vet and he said that it was due to overeating .She was fine.

Today again she is vomiting whole seeds. Fluffed up. Her style of eating is to pick up seeds and eat them but when she vomits or is going to vomit, she only nibbles seeds and eats only a seed from it.she does not sing and poops by shaking its vent. less active . feet are cold.

I am very worried about her health and dont want to lose her. I want to know the causes and how to care for it.

I'm really sorry to hear that Piku is sick.

Unfortunately, we can not officially diagnose her and she should be taken to an avian vet for a full check up, and medication if needed.

Sorry your bird is ill, everything you have described are indications of an ill bird, being fluffed up is not due to overeating, it is an indication the bird is not well and the vomiting an indication of a possible infection. Is your vet an avian vet? At the very least a test on the droppings and a crop swab is advisable to determine if there is some type of infection going on.

Yes my vet is a avian vet. I also did not agree to it but i had to as the vet said .I want to know the exact causes so that i can treat her if there is an infection .I had read on the internet that this kind of symptoms( some of them) are shown by the yeast infection .

Hi! to Talk Budgies

We are unable to diagnose your budgie's illness through a forum.

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.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

I would advise you to find an Avian or Exotic Pet Vet near you to work with to find the proper diagnosis and treatment plan for your little budgie. It sounds as if she may have AGY.

Avian Gastric Yeast

Macrorhabdus - Avian Gastric Yeast

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

Thank you for your advice. You provided a great information. I wanted to ask that can i put some garlic into their water as some of the sites say that internal parasites die due to it. will the AGY die by providing garlic?

I would not put garlic in the water if the bird has internal parasites the vet would be able to determine that and give you the correct medication. If there is a active Avian Gastric Yeast infection, that will not go away on its own and can be fatal so it is critical that the bird be assessed by the vet and tested for that, however not all infected birds will shed the organism in the droppings so sometimes the vet may have to rule out other things and make the diagnosis based on the symptoms. Amphoteracin B is commonly used for active AGY infections.

update

I have an vet appointment after two days.
I have listed all the points and when i checked her poop, it was brown as usual but it had some black tinges . so i checked the back tinge and found some hard particles which were black in colour.
photo is included.The stone like structures are much much smaller than the photo which is enlarged.

It's good that you will be taking the bird to the vet. Some bird seed mixtures contain a small black seed which is rape ( canola) seed, if what you are feeding contains this seed then it may be that the bird is not digesting them and they are being passed through as the whole seed. Make sure you let the vet know about this and inquire about the possibility of an Avian Gastric Yeast infection or other digestive disorders. Please keep us updated after the vet appointment.
