Default I'm extremely worried

My budgie Reggie is moulting and he's become very lethargic. He's flying around fine, eating fine, drinking fine but he rarely talks, he is exhausted not just tired but exhausted. Not to mention his poops are funny and very watery it's extremely heartbreaking to see.

He won't touch egg food he hates it. I don't know what else to do and I'm so worried about him.

Please help. I'm desperate.

Jasmine, this doesn't sound like its a cause for concern as budgies can be quite tired during their moults. All I can suggest it keep offering egg food to Reggie- try it in different ways, with some treat that he likes maybe to get him curious. A budgie can't eat what isn't there.

Other than that, although the moults are tough, Reggie will get through it and I don;t read anything in your post that is troubling in regards to moulting behaviour.

I agree with Therm. Nothing you've written seems cause for undue concern.
Molting is normal and all budgies go through it.

At least Reggie is not experiencing a "miserable molt" and you being desperately worried is just going to add to Reggie's stress level.
Remember that budgies pick up on your emotions.

You can give him flax seed and/or put a bit of flax seed oil on his food.

Make sure you read the links below:

https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...ting-faqs.html

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-gene...e-molting.html

If you are extremely worried and concerned, you can take Reggie to your Avian Vet for a check-up for your own peace of mind.

Our budgie gets kind of tired, too. Molting can be pretty stressful.

Default It seems Reggie has bad diarrhoea

So it looks like Reggie has caught some bad diarrhoea. His poops have been extremely watery for the past 2 days and I'm currently waiting for some guardian angel to help him get better. I'll keep everyone updated in this thread. But this is how his poops look right now.

He's eating fine, drinking fine, chirping and acting like his normal self. It's just his poops being very off. I also think it may of been from the Johnson's Moultone Tonic I gave him so I won't be using that product ever again.

I've merged this thread with the other thread where you wrote you were concerned about Reggie's health. Please do not create multiple threads on the same topic.

You can make your own electrolyte solution to use until you receive the Guardian Angel.

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...te-recipe.html

I'm not sure why you were giving him "tonic" to begin with but I'd definitely stop.

If you want a natural pro-biotic, use Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother.

If Reggie's poops continue to be that runny tomorrow then I'd schedule him for an Avian Vet appointment to ensure there is no underlying illness.

It was recommended by my grandfather who has been working with birds since he was 14. He told me it would help during his moulting if he had some extra vitamins. The guardian angel will get here around 8AM tomorrow. So I'll give it to him straight away.

Also his poops never happened like this before. It was only until I started giving him the tonic it began happening and I took him straight off it.

I'm definitely going to contact the vet if it continues to be very watery and bad like they are. I'll keep you updated.

Also mentioning my grandfather is very old fashioned when it comes to budgies and what he's learnt. He's 64 years old now.

I apologise for multiple threads.
I've also just give him some millet soaked in electrolyte solution and he's eating it. So hopefully it works well until the guardian angel comes

If Reggie is eating pellets, a healthy seed mix and vegetables, then he should have no need for extra vitamins.

As mentioned before, you can give him extra flax seed or add a drop or two of flax seed oil to his food during his molts.

The ACV can be used regularly as it helps promote the good flora in a budgie's digestive tract.

Thank you so much faery for the advice. I've given him the electrolytes tonight and tomorrow when the guardian angel comes I will use that. He's eating the millet soaked in electrolytes so hopefully this does the job
