Default Female Budgies Keeps Sleeping

Female Budgies Keeps Sleeping-image.jpg

My female budgie who is about 1 year old for the past couple of days has just been sleeping like this, not active at all, she went on the floor and looked like her leg or wing might be a bit sore as she had trouble walking and flying, I think she has been eating okay, I just took her out in my hand and she just sat there, I moved her wings and legs but she didn't flinch or anything. My male budgie is feeding her and the might have mated, would that make a difference? Please anyone got any ideas?

Hi there and welcome to the forums,

From your description and the photo you have posted, your budgie doesn't look well at all. Usually when budgies show these symptoms they are already very sick and in need of emergency professional medical attention.

The best thing to do in this case is to book an emergency appointment with an avian vet specialist.

If your budgie hasn't been feeling well for a good while, I doubt there has been any recent mating attempts.

Is she currently able to feed herself? If not, you can keep her with her mate, but be aware that he will continue to be more exposed to whatever ailment your female budgie has.

It would be better to move her to a small hospital/travel cage and keep her warm by covering the cage on 3 sides.
If you have millet spray, you can soak it in electrolyte solution and offer it to her in hopes of giving her a little boost.
You can also offer her some egg food.

I truly hope you will be able to have her seen by an avian vet as soon as possible.

Thank you for your help. I put her in a small box, nice and warm with some food and water, unfortunately within ten minutes of putting her in there, she passed away thank you for your help

I'm very sorry to hear that, you have my deepest sympathies.
Despite the way things have turned out, it would still be of benefit to have the surviving budgie properly examined by an avian vet because due to the close proximity he had with his mate there is the chance of the illness having been to him and by having your budgie treated at an early stage, he will have the best chances for a full recovery.

I'm moving your thread to the Follow-up Center section where you can update on how your male budgie is doing.

I'm very sorry for the loss of your little female.

It's good that you will be taking your male to the Avian Vet tomorrow for a check up.

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.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

Please be sure to update us on his condition.

Best wishes

Hi there and to the forums!

I'm sorry to have to welcome you under such difficult circumstances as the loss of your little female

How is your male budgie doing now?

I hope things get better and I'm wishing you all the best

In the meantime, you should be sure to read through all the Budgie Articles and "stickies" (posts "stuck" to the top of each subforum for easy reference) to ensure you're up to date on the latest budgie care practices.

Feel free to ask any questions afterwards if you have them!

Please keep us posted!
