So Bucky has become/is starting to look extremely depressed because I don't take him out of his cage much recently (I'm trying to study and he doesn't stay still when he's on my shoulder and jumps over the keyboard). If he's not out of the cage, he's in the corner of his cage with his head down sleeping (didn't alarm me before because he likes to sleep like that at night). Now he doesn't sleek down when I take him out (his feathers aren't puffed but they're slightly raised) and his chirping has become quiet and sad sounding.
Yesterday, I put in one of his brothers to keep him company but he has 0 interest in the new budgie and is still so focused on me. If he's not sleeping in the corner of the cage he's pacing up and down at the front of the cage trying to get me to let him out.
Seems to also have gone off his seed so I'm going out after my exam to buy more formula as I don't want him to starve.
Earliest appointment with an Avian Vet I can get is Monday, but if needed I can take him to the vet hospital in the city.
Poos are varying between runny/mostly solid but I wonder if that's the weaning as well as the being stressed.
I am so very concerned about him and it's really bad as I've got university finals for the semester at the moment and can't afford to be worrying about him
Any advice please to get him less attached to me and start him playing with his new friend?? How to lessen his depression and what to do until I can get him to an avian vet??
Thank you so much,
