I'm sorry to hear that.
At this point I wouldn't separate the little one from his older cage mate, unless of course the older budgie was keeping the baby from eating his food.
He can learn where the food and water is by watching the older budgie.
There are a number of things you can do to help the little one to eat.
You can place a food dish (a little bowl) on the bottom of the cage for him to eat. The easiest seed for weaning budgies to deshusk and eat are spray millet, flax seed, Niger seed and canary seed. You should also place in another dish with some egg food, this is vital for weaning chicks as it provides good nourishment during this transitioning phase they go through. You can mix some flax and Niger seed into the egg food, this is what I do with my chicks and they really go for it and love it.
Offering soft veggies at this stage is also a plus, you can start with spinach leaves and then move to other kinds of greens.
I hope all goes well with your little one, good luck!
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
