Follow-up CenterThreads made in the Emergency Room forum will be moved here by staff as a way to follow-up with members after their budgie emergency.
This keeps the E.R. for only the most current emergencies.
I don't know im just overreacting to nothing but one of my budgies seems to have light brown coloured poop and has a little heavier breathing than my other budgie (no severe tail bobbing) which I know can be signs of chlamydiosis psittacosis. I'm terrified. If Comet does have this does that mean I can never add another flock member? Is it curable and how's it tested for? I have been preparing for the arrival of my green cheek conure for months now but now I don't even know if it's possible. If the bird had this and was treated/removed would my bedroom where they were kept still be dangerous to go into and for how long or how could I clean it due to spores? If there is no treatment I don't know what to do. I can't take care of a bird with this disease as the only room they can be in is my bedroom and I can't handle a severly sick bird. If it came down to me having to find a new home how would I even do that? Who would ever take a bird with that problem. I am terrified, I love comet and would be heartbroken if I couldn't cure or keep him and id be heart broken if I couldn't get my green cheek. Please help me, I don't know what to do.

Ok thank you, I think I've been completely overreacting, his breathing seems fine now and his poop seems like it's getting back to normal. There are tons of symptoms related to this and hes only "had" two. I'm going to keep an eye on him and if his poop doesn't go completely back to normal then I'll be sure to take him to the vet immediately.
