In a quiet room hold the bird close to your ear. If you can hear crackling noises over and above heart beat or normal breathing, this indicates Respiratory distress. If you listen to enough breathing noises you can even tell upper/sinus as opposed to lower lung/bronchi. See the avian vet ASAP in this case.

Best wishes, Jo Ann:p

We offer several mineral sources besides cuttle bone. Try Manu roses, mineral salt wheels that are brown they have iodine which is some times lacking in budgies. A lava rock is great to scratch heads, groom beak, and claws and for a good snooze perch after grooming and preening. There are an assortment of perches that are edible calcium and other minerals. Our birds will choose different ones at different times. Even a nice fresh branch that is safe from your yard is a treat. Best wishes, Jo Ann:p
