Default Please help, Melody is regurgitating and cannot poop properly

Few hours ago I noticed Melody's poop remains attached to her bum and she's been fluffly and sleeping all day. Then sometimes she's regurgitating and aiming to spit on the floor. Cory tried to get the seeds she's vomiting but she isn't aiming at his beak obviously. I now isolated her to see if she's eating and poops properly (and check the consistency of the vomit). Please give me any advice

I'll obviously take her to the vet asap but in the mean time I need to know what I should do, please help.

Edit:

She's in the transport cage now and gets in the fluffy position and shakes her bum like she normally does to poo but fails to do so, then she tried to get behind with her beak and shakes her head disgusted as the poop is attached there. She had sex with Cory recently, could that be a symptom of egg binding? She never layed any egg before.

I'm sorry your Melody is not feeling well.
If she has poop build up on her vent area, it's likely this is blocking her from pooping normally. If possible try to gently remove the poop off of her by soaking a cotton ball on lukewarm water and wiping the vent clean.
A couple of sporadic matings won't result in eggs, so unless they have been consistently mating, the possibility of an egg is very low.

Until you get her to the vet, you can keep her extra warm by covering her cage on 3 sides with a fleece blanket. You can also place a hot water bottle underneath the cage's bottom, be sure to leave an area where she can escape the heat.

Since it seems Melody has been vomiting, you can try to feed her some spray millet to her, usually sick birds take very well to millet. You can soak the millet into electrolyte solution to give her a little boost too.

I hope things go well at the vet's and your Melody gets back to full health soon.

Thanks Aluz, I already took off the poo this morning and earlier, now she did a liquid one and Im afraid she'll go back to stuck poop again.

I have cage heaters, I'll use them and see if something changes (I cover the cage everynight with a throw anyway). Im giving spray millet to her now
But what do you mean with electrolyte solution?

Thank you for the link. I tried to give her spray millet but she doesn't seem to want to eat anything

She's not eating anything, Cory is trying to fed her but nothing. I used a syringe for hens to feed her with lukewarm water with some vitamins in it and her poo is normal now. However she did one which is a normal solid dark green without the white part. I noticed that before but didn't think it was important....do you think it's a bad sign?

It is very important you get Melody to the Avian Vet as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and treatment protocol.
The members of the forum are not trained Avian Vets and Melody's condition is such she needs professional help.

I hope you've been able to get an appointment for her so she'll be seen soon. Please update us on her condition after her appointment.

Sending much love, healing energy, positive thoughts and prayers for little Melody.

Blessings

Keep her warm, try some apple cider vinegar with Mother in it, a few drops of it in her drinking water. This is a natural probiotic, the avian vet is a must to see what the problem is, keep an eye on your budgie for any signs of trouble.

She's sleeping at the vet's clinic tonight with Cory who just didn't want to let her go. They cleaned her crop and found a yeast infection but she's eating by herself and that seems to be a good sign. The vet said he is going to release her tomorrow if she keeps eating and I'll need to give her medication for the next few days. However if this happens again they'll do further tests.
