Default Can I have some crossed fingers from y'all?

We may be getting a new birdie soon here.
MAY because so far we're not sure he'll make it that far.

This morning, I get a call from our vet (our regular vet, not our avian vet) - would I be able to take in another bird?
Budgie was found sitting in the street by some people who realised the bird didn't belong there and was in distress. They dropped him off at the nearest vet and that was that. He (actually I don't know if it's a he, asking that was about the last thing on my mind)'s not ringed, so either "illegally" hatched or deliberately made untrackable - unringed birds are not legal here; in the first case there's a chance he's an escapee and a very slip chance that he'll find his home again.
He's in a very bad way, much too thin and so far vomiting whatever he eats.
I asked them to transfer him to our avian vet, which has been done and he's going to be taken care of there for the moment. I can keep a bird in quarantine here, but while we don't know what we're dealing with I'd just rather not have him in the house if I have another option.
Now, with some luck I'll soon be able to welcome a new addition to the flock... Would you keep your fingers crossed and send some good thoughts for the little guy (or, indeed, girl) while I try to come up with a budgie name theme for 2015?

StarlingWings, it is only going to be amazing if I actually get to take him home... Otherwise it may end up becoming a very sad story instead. If I have things my way, I'll be able to post pictures of a pretty little new birdie in a few days!

Well, if the birdie isn't well enough to make it, at least s/he will pass cared for and away from the streets, all alone.
I hope to see some pictures! Sending lots of hugs and kisses to the little bird and I hope s/he makes it to meet his loving home!

All my best thoughts and prayers for the poor little thing. He/she deserves a life filled with love and good care. It takes a strong budgie to survive on the streets. That's the good sign of a fighter.

The flock of 14 and I are sending our prayers and best wishes to the little stray budgie. I hope he/she pulls through and soon is able to go to his/her new forever home with you.

Sending as much healing energy and as many positive thoughts and prayers to the little budgie as possible.

Hopefully in a few days time little "Lucky" will be able to come home to a safe and loving forever home with you.
