    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this should be in the emergency section but I fear it could be something that needs immediate attention, Title sums up what is happening. I can't verify the age/sex personally, but the pet shop claimed the budgie is male. Here are the comparison pictures...

    Hi. I've just bought a new budgie. It was bought from a pet store as there are no breeders in my area. I'm very worried, as it is displaying signs of an infection.
