I have a 16 day old baby budgie. He is not able to fold his legs. He is lying like a fish in his nest. His mother is not feeding him. I have to handfeed him.
Dont know what happened to him. But m really worried.
Because in my state there is not any vet for birds.
Plz help.

Welcome to the forums! :)

I'm sorry to hear one of your chicks is possibly having developmental problems and the mother has rejected him.
A picture or two would be helpful, if you can post them.
Do the chick's legs appear to be spread apart of if it's doing the splits?
If so then the chick has splayed legs and you will need to take fast measures in order to fix this problem, so that the chick is able to have the feet corrected and have better chances at a happy life.
Check this link below for all the info on splayed legs and how to correct and properly position your chick's feet:

And since you are hand feeding the chick, if you haven't done so already, read the detailed info on this link as well:

Good luck with everything! I hope your chick has a steady and good recovery.

Hi and :welcome: to Talk Budgies!

aluz has provided you with excellent advice. :thumbsup:

As you indicate there are no Avian Vets near you, you will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life. :) We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet. With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.
