Hi, my buggie is sat on the bottom of the cage, is really weak when flying and can't make the flight to her normal perch of choice, she is eating and drinking as normal, not a bird that likes to be handled but is not putting up any fight if we pick her up or check on her, this has been the case for a couple of days! I thought at first she may of hurt her wing but I don't think this is the case now and that she my be poorly? Any ideas of what could be wrong.

Thanks..

Any number of things could be causing it, however any bird that is sitting at the bottom of the cage should be seen by an avian vet as soon as possible.

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.

Hi there and welcome to the forums!

FaeryBee has given you great advice and resources. I agree that the best course of action is to take you budgie to a vet at this time.

Please be sure to update us on his condition when you get a chance! Please read through all the links above as well, and if you have further questions after doing so, feel free to ask.

Hope to see you around!
