Hi Herondale and welcome to TB

I have merged your threads as creating duplicates is not necessary and will cause some confusion.

I'm sorry your little budgie doesn't seem to be doing so well. I recommend taking him to an avian vet ASAP. He should not be shaking and his inability to fly is also worrying.

Welcome to the forums.

There are some reasons that can lead to the beak to grow abnormally, it could be from a dietary deficiency, liver damage, advance stage of mites, Psittacine beak and feather disease.
At the age your budgie is, he should be able to fly. Does your budgie have all the flight feathers?
From that first photo, your Snowflake doesn't seem to be well and if he is shaking, then it's very likely that he is cold and you will need to provide extra heat to help him fight the whatever ailment he has.
You can cover the cage on three sides with a warm blanket and place a heating pad or hot water bottle underneath the cage's bottom. Be sure to leave one part of the cage where your Snowflake can escape the extra heat.
You can try offering your budgie egg food as this is highly nutritious and is good for sick or convalescent birds. If you have millet spray, you can soak it in electrolyte solution to hopefully give a boost to your Snowflake.
This link has the detailed info: https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...te-recipe.html

This is only basic care, your budgie will need to be seen by an avian vet specialist or a vet who is experienced with pet birds, so that Snowflake is properly examined, correctly diagnosed and given the right treatment plan.

I'm wishing your Snowflake a steady and full recovery.

Thank you
He is not active as the other one(angel) angel is hyperactive goes up and down and all those crazy things but for snowflake my sis my mom and I take her out and allow her to do something that's pretty much it and I am also worried about her beak. Snowflake does look like she is eating I have seen her a couple of time
Plus he and angel were taken out of the cage a bit early angel is fine and eating at that time snowflake didn't know how to eat but the mother bird laid eggs again and started attacking these two so took them out so ever since then she has been shaking like this
The incident happened around Jan 26
If u could post the threads here it would be really helpful

I will try the heating pad like u said but will it affect angel too since they r in the same cage

Thank u

Your baby budgie's beak definitely needs to be looked at. You can not fix it yourself it needs to be done by a qualified Avian vet. Also as Aluz mentioned there are many diseases or problems that can be causing your budgie's problems. Please google Avian vets in the area you live.

Yes, the beak is overgrown and you need to see an Avian Vet. Snowflake needs to be examined and properly diagnosed.

Here is a link listing vets in your area:

Hi there and to the forums!

Your budgies are very cute I'm sorry they're not doing well, their best chance right now will be when they see the avian vet. Please let us know when you're able to get in an appointment! I'm sure they'll feel much better after getting an accurate diagnosis.

You've received excellent advice from the previous posters with regards to caring for their condition while you wait for a vet appointment. With the heating pad, you can put it on only one side of the cage (hung on one corner or in one half of the cage, depending on how large it is/whether or not it's foldable) and that will allow Angel to move away from the heat if he gets too hot. You only need to put the heat on the lowest setting so they don't overheat.

As for soaking the millet, even though they dehusk the seed, the fact that the liquid soaks into the seed helps, but also a major part of it is that the nectar-like solution entices them to eat millet, since they may not even eat millet if they're feeling very sick. When they eat, they keep up their strength, and the Pedialyte solution helps to keep them going.
Here's what millet in it's "spray form" looks like:


Meanwhile, be sure to read through all the links provided above! They'll help expand your knowledge even more and help to keep you up to date on the best way to care for budgies

Hope to see you around and if you have any questions after reviewing the links, be sure to ask!

Please keep us posted on how your budgies are doing

Would it be a case if snowflake is like this because of no sunlight?
Now I told my mom and showed her the reply she said let them be out in the sunshine for some time she said and I did that now snowflake seems to be OK she was running around a bit
