Default Adam can't walk

Hi, i have just registered because my budgie Adam (42 day old) can't walk or stand properly. This started yesterday, i was playing with him, he was flying around a bit and mostly sitting on his perch until i put him back in his cage because i had to leave. 30 minutes later i came back and he is "resting" on his cage perch, not standing (by that i mean that he is "sitting on his chest", so i took him out to check, and he started crawling! i checked that his legs were not broken and it seems they are ok, but as he can't stand properly and crawls around he is having a lot of trouble moving inside his cage, his wings get caught with the sides of the cage or he falls, sometimes he manages to stand on the perch. i put his food at his level so that he can eat and i am giving him water.
he had diarrhea a week ago from eating bread with some drops of water on it, but he recovered perfectly. this happened so suddenly.
here are some photos of him 15 minutes ago.

Put his food and water, and favorite perch down low, right near the bottom of the cage. You need to keep him warm. I cannot see the pic's because of the computer I am on but obviously he has injured his leg, or has something neurological going on, and need's to see a vet as soon as possible for determination on how to treat and possible pain management. Please keep us posted.

I agree with Jonah, take him to an avian certified vet asap. My previous budgie, Samson, just all of a sudden started sitting on the bottom of her cage, wasn't using her feet at all. Took her to the vet, turns out she had gout, was prescribed amoxicillin, and passed away the next day. It might be an injury or an illness. Only way to find out is to go to a vet. Keep us posted! I hope it's easily treatable whatever it is.

Poor little Adam.
I hope you've managed to get him in to see an Avian Vet today. Please let us know what the vet had to say and how Adam is doing. Sending lots of healing energy, positive thoughts and prayers for your little fellow.

Adam is sleeping in his cage right now, i fed him and gave him water and lots of lovel. Tomorrow morning i will take him to the guy who sold it to me, a breeder that has been breeding budgies for 20 years, i hope he knows what to do
(because to tell you the truth, here in Buenos Aires Argentina, it isn't so easy to find an avian vet, i have never seen one, only normal vets... i only found ONE, an hour from here and is closed tomorrow..)
thank you all for the support, again, i will keep you posted tomorrow

I hope you get your little budgie to a vet. Keep him warm, and continue to keep food and drink within easy reach.

Good news! i took Adam to the breeder who has a huge amount of experience and after checking my little budgie for a few minutes he told me that his right leg is in pain because he hurt himself in the cage, he didn't break it, but he doesn't use it because, as you may imagine, it hurts. he gave me the meds for his water (4 drops, after 24hs change the water and put another 4 drops. i can take a pic of the medication if you want to know).
he said he will be ok in a few days, maybe a week and a half or two weeks at most.
if you see the second pic i uploaded when i posted this, you can see he is leaning on his left leg, because of what i just said, the right leg is the one that's hurt.
he also told me that MAYBE just MAYBE when he heals he doesn't walk PERFECTLY because of this, but he will be just fine.
I am really happy with the results guys, thank you all for the support. i will post again when he is completely healed to show you, and this may help someone who has the same problem in the future. should i put this information somewhere else in this forum or i just leave it here?
Adam says thank you too
Bye
