Default Worried : ( Any Comforting Thoughts?

My budgie's watery poops stopped hours ago and he doesn't seem to have a runny nose anymore. But I'm worried. Could that mean he lost so much water that he is to the point where he doesn't poop watery? The time left to see the vet is like two more days. If I went to another one, its a animal hospital where they take lots of animals and is very expensive.It would probably take up so much time and i don't have a lot of money for that. OTL Plus he seems fluffy and a little shaky at times. He can still stand on one leg, run around and chirp happily but I seriously can't stop thinking about him for three days straight. My parents are annoyed with me. I voice my worries a lot. Also his poop is small looking and a greenish color now.

Aggh, it can be so many things causing his poop that i'm feeling down in the dumps.I separated him from the female because i didn't want him to lay eggs with her anymore. Could he be depressed even though his cage is close to hers?

It is natural that you are worried about your budgie, there are some things you can do to help him. Firstly is it possible to post a picture of him and his poop?

Cover his cage on three sides, use a hot water bottle or other heat source to help him keep warm when sick budgies expend a lot of energy keeping warm. Feed him some egg and biscuit mix or millet, these are good conditioning foods. Hold off on greens as that makes poop watery as well.
Get some probiotics, having these things on hand is a must when you have birds in case they do get sick. Also some apple cider vinegar added to the water, just a couple of drops but it must contain Mother. this is a natural probiotic.
Can you hold your budgie? if so hold him up close to your ear and listen for any noises when breathing, crackling or wheezing or squeaking sounds. if any present place his cage in the bathroom and run hot shower to make steam or use a kettle near the cage under the blanket like a tent. If you have some eucalyptus oil add a few drops to the water if doing the tent method. this will help the airways.

Thanks. Tomorrow I will put a bottle with hot water near his cage and feed him millet. (Where to put the bottle?)Although the seeds i give him say they have millet in them along with fruit. I'm giving him vita prima parakket formula. Is that bad? I also have some millet that i purchased too though. However, they are sleeping now since it night. I read that its not good to give medicine by yourself without knowing what it is and I don't now what Mother is. I feel like taking him to the vet tomorrow but if the doctor is not in there is nothing I can do. :/ I will post a pic of him and his poop tomorrow.

Apple cider vinegar is a natural probiotic Mother is what makes it work as a probiotic it can't hurt your budgie unless you give too much but then I don't think he would drink it . Place the hot water bottle wrapped in a tea towel or something similar next where he likes to perch.

Of course you're worried - I worry all the time about my birds.
Cathy's great advice will help him until you can take him to the vet and then hopefully the vet can get to the bottom of it and give you the right medication for him.
Best of luck.

No need to apologise ever here! The bottle should have the word Mother in the ingredients list. You can find it at health food stores or bigger super markets usually. You just put a couple of drops of the vinegar into the water container, it is great for all of your budgies many members here use it regularly.
