My condolences on your mother's passing, Michael.

Your budgies may have either a viral or a bacterial infection but the only way to know for sure is to have them examined by an Avian Vet.

What type diet are your birds on?
Do you give them ACV (which is a natural probiotic) to help their digestive systems and boost their immunity? (see following link)

To help with respiratory issues, you can put your budgie's cage in the bathroom when you run hot water through the shower so the cage is in the hot steamy air -- that will help open the airways.

Another option is to tent the cage with a sheet and place a pot or kettle of boiling water under the sheet where your budgie is unable to touch it and allow the steam to accumulate that way. If you have pure eucalyptus oil, you can put one tiny drop into the water as that will also help to clear the airways so the budgie is better able to breathe.

I understand being on limited funds and urge you to begin setting aside a little money each week/month into an "emergency fund" so you will have the necessary means to provide Avian Vet care for your budgies should it be necessary to do so.

Best wishes on a full and speedy recover for your little ones. Please be sure to update us on their condition in this thread.
