The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being Locating an Avian Veterinarian
Cody is 100% correct. Your bird needs to be seen by an Avian Veterinarian on an Emergency basis.
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.

Budgies hide illnesses until they are too ill to hide them as a survival mechanism. It is a very bad sign if he is just laying in one place without moving. As the other staff have said above, I hope you got him to a vet as soon as you could. How is he doing now?
