Skylove,

I am not a vet or even an expert in any way. Without knowing what is wrong, there is not much I can suggest. I would check out the sticky below about a way to get the bird to keep drinking, although it may not help if your bird is unable to drink.
https://www.talkbudgies.com/your-budg...te-recipe.html

As for keeping your bird warm, the key is to keep it out of drafts. As long the temperature is in the low 60s (Fahrenheit) or above, it should be ok. You can partially cover the cage if you are worried about drafts.

This one might have some helpful info:

These are just suggestions for information in the meantime. You will need to find a vet to look at your bird. If you don't have an avian vet in the area, you can see if you can get the vet to consult by phone.

Good luck! Hopefully someone with more knowledge can help you better than me.

I'm very sorry to hear your budgie is ill.

You can cover the top and three sides of the cage the budgie is in to help keep him warm.

As Goldenwing indicated, you can give him the Pedialyte which should help stimulate his appetite and hopefully also entice him to drink.

If you have it, give him a spray of millet.
The millet seeds are easy to crack and many sick birds will eat those.
You can also try giving him boiled egg.

You need to take your budgie to a veterinarian and ask that individual to consult with an Avian Vet to determine how best to treat your budgie.

While it is very challenging for people who live in countries with no Avian Vets, there are steps you can take to help ensure your budgies' health.

With the right motivation, you can work with a regular or veterinarian to get the proper care for your budgie(s).

You will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life.

We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet.
With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

When you develop a good relationship with a regular veterinarian, that individual can collaborate via telephone or Skype with Avian Veterinarians in other countries if necessary to get assistance in appropriate diagnosing and prescribing treatment for your Avian companions.

Sorry your bird is ill. When a bird is ill a lot of their energy is spent keeping themselves warm, so you need to make sure that your bird is in a warm environment, if you have a heating pad you can put it on one side of the cage on the outside of the cage bars, and if the bird feels the need for extra warmth he can move closer to the warmth being emitted from the heating pad.
