Well I thinks step #1 would be to move them to separate cages immediately.

Then observe the baby for a little while if it doesnt perk up pretty quickly I would take it to the Avian vet right away.

I separated them at around 1 and he still is on the floor of the new cage. He is eating a tiny tiny bit but is still puffed up and breathing heavily!! His head is also bobbing up and down. I just dont understand what could have made him like this. Budgie bullying??

I'm sorry your budgie isn't well. It's possible that he came home sick, and you didn't see the signs. Budgies are incredibly skillful in hiding their illnesses. Too good for their own good, actually. They are naturally prey animals and will hide their illness to prevent themselves from being seen as weak, sick, and easy to catch. He really needs to be seen by a qualified avian vet as soon as possible. When they begin showing sign of being ill, it's usually because they physically can't hide it anymore. Soak some millet in some Pedialyte, or electrolyte solution. Keep him calm and warm. If you have a heating pad, put it in his cage on one side so that if he gets too warm he can move off of it. And make sure to put a towel over top of the heating pad so he doesn't burn himself. Keep him quarantined from your other bird as this may be contagious and you don't want your other budgie getting. Here's a thread that tells how to make your own "pedialyte" if you don't have any:

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...te-recipe.html

How are his droppings? Color, consistency? How about the white part, the urate? What color is that? I would invest in a gram scale to begin weighing him to make sure he's eating. Give him whatever he will eat, whether it be seed, pellets, or veggies.

Bullying wouldn't cause this btw, he really needs to be seen by an avian vet.

Hopefully one of our experts will be along soon to tell you more. Good luck, I hope everything turns out good.

-Kristen

Hi there and to the forums!

Were both of the budgies obtained at the same place? I'm asking because even if they are adopted at the same time, they could be carrying a sickness from where they were previously housed so it's important to follow quarantine in all cases except when budgies are from the same place within one week of each other.
https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...necessary.html

Angie is absolutely correct that the very first step is to separate them. Since I'm assuming none of them are hand tame, it may be difficult to move them, but if you use a light cloth to gently pick one of them up, s/he won't associate your hand with danger in the future.

It does sound like s/he's sick, and Kristen has provided great information on how to take care of your little one while you wait for an avian vet appointment. It's imperative you get him/her to the vet as soon as you can as this illness must be in the late stages if s/he's so weak s/he is on the floor.
https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...important.html
https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...-medicine.html
https://talkbudgies.com/emergency-roo...avian-vet.html

Bullying does seem to be a problem as well, but I also don't believe that it is the main cause of the problem. However, it is definitely a contributing factor, so that's another reason that separation is essential other than quarantine. When quarantine has finished and the little one feels better, introducing them gradually in neutral territory is essential so neither feels territorial. If they get along, after a while, they can be caged together. However, it is not guaranteed that even after this, their personalities will be compatible, so they could need to be caged separately afterwards. Check out this link for more information:

Be sure to also read through the rest of the forum articles and "stickies", as they will keep you posted on the very best of budgie care and practices!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please do ask as we'd love to help.

Hope to see you around and please keep us posted on your budgies' conditions!
