These are all signs that your budgie needs to see a vet. Where do you live? We might be able to find an avian vet. If you don't have another option, you should take your bird to a regular vet. See if they are willing to consult over the phone with an avian vet. There are vets who will do this. We are not medical professionals and can't tell what is wrong with your bird, only that your description is of a very sick bird.

The one thing you can try to do in the mean time is see if you can get your bird to drink some pedialyte. Here is the recipe: https://www.talkbudgies.com/your-bud...te-recipe.html.

Good luck!

Any time your budgie is ill, you need to take appropriate measures right away. This means contacting an Avian Vet or an Exotic Pet Veterinarian who has experience in dealing with small birds.

In the meantime, keep her warm and give her either Guardian Angel or Pedialyte (see link below)

Avian First Aid

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.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

Please be sure to let us know how she is doing.

Best wishes
