Default I fear my bird is seriously ill

Male; born June 2012; brought him home August 2012....he's been healthy the entire time I've had him. I began noticing little changes recently but wrote it off as nothing worrisome. However, the last couple days have given me extreme pause....

His poop is all-white. It also makes a louder than normal PLOP sound when it hits the bottom of the cage. He hasn't been chirping as much as usual. His lower-back right above the tail (around the gland area) is puffed out more than normal. Everytime he poops, he vigorously wiggles his butt as if he's straining to get it out. He never used to do this. His energy levels are below the norm, as well.

On a positive note...he is still eating and drinking (thank God).

Does anybody know what's going on? What should I do? I don't want to lose him. He's the sweetest little bird and he's helped me get through a lot.

Welcome to the forums,

I'm sorry your budgie has been feeling under the weather.
Given the change in appearance and consistency of the poop, the fact that he struggles to "go to the toilet" and you have also been noticing a change on his overall energy and a decrease on his activity levels, it would be best to have your budgie seen by an avian vet specialist for a proper examination, diagnosis and treatment plan.

I hope your budgie feels better soon and I'm wishing him a steady and full recovery.

Hi there and to Talk Budgies!

I'm sorry to hear about your little one!

Aluz has given the best possible advice--since he's having trouble defecating and he seems depleted and lethargic, it really is best to take him to the avian vet. A qualified vet will be able to check all possible things to ensure the diagnosis is correct, and can be treated as soon as possible.

I hope to hear an update on his condition soon!

Meanwhile, be sure to read through the forums to ensure you're up to date on everything. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask as we'd love to help!

Cheers, and best wishes
