Default Rio might be sick?

Hi,
Just today like 1 and half hour ago my blue budgie acted weird like moving his head right to left so fast and quick as something was making discomfort in his throat. Then he made this head so high and up and down moves with his head while opening his mouth again and again feeling something stucked in his throat. He doesn't want us to touch him at all in the beginning. He throwed up a tiniest bit of his millet 2 tiny bits then sat on the different perch where other 2 were not sitting and little bit of fluffed up and sleepy. Didn't chirped like still this is 9:05 pm and he haven't chirped or sing at all from 7:30pm. When my younger brother offered millet to others and came running and started eating but after few bites same thing and so he went to the top of the cage perch and sat there. He asked for scraching his head and so other male budgie Sweetpea (who is friend and does scraching on Rio's head) gave him head scratch and Rio responded good like he does usually. Rio's throat part like the part under his blue dots is very fat like swollen. I have seen his this fattening thing when 2 days ago he escaped from cage and knocked off on the walls and then he sat for few minutes and his throat or whatever you called that part got fatty and then after he throwed up millets that he ate his fat part was gone and he was all fine that day. I hope he does well through this night. Please pray. I will try to go to exotic vet tomorrow after convincing my father (hope that he agrees going to other city) as he had toe nail removal surgery last wednesday. Rio's droppings are all normal though.
Here are the pics: Tried to upload video on photobucket but that's not working. So here you go: (will post pics tomorrow as the links are not pasting right)

Your odds are very good that your bird, Rio, is going to be all right soon.

The swollen part of Rio's throat is his crop, which is a sack that holds a budgie's food before it's digested. It's normal for the crop to be full and swollen.

Sometimes a budgie will stretch his neck to adjust the food in his crop. This is normal.

Sometimes a budgie will bob his head up and down to regurgitate food to feed another budgie (or his favorite human ). This is a normal sign of affection and practice for breeding.

When a budgie is sick, sometimes he will vomit food. The vomiting is usually violent, with food and mucus flying all around. The budgie will appear droopy and unwell, too.

It sounds like your budgie is just adjusting his crop and regurgitating food.

Please do post photos so we can look for signs of illness.

He did vomit the 3 tiniest dots of his food. Just saw his yellow watery dropping with small white creamy thing not as circle. Yes, his crop is swollen and he didnt made any sounds or chirps for 3 hours AT ALL. Didnt wanted to eat his favorite veggie and didnt even drank water from that time even I tried to feed him water but he ran away to other corner of the cage. Feels sleepy/tired. Doesn't want to interect with other 2. But he did went to bottom of the cage in his big food bowl to eat some millet but didnt vomit after that except streching his head as it seemed like again food is stucked. Taking all of them to vet tomorrow early morning. Please do pray for him a lot especially that he can go throgh this night well. Our heart is already bleeding. Just can't wait this night needs to go fast.😣😢😢😭😭😭 🙏

The droppings are not normal as you are aware.
Taking Rio to the vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan is definitely the best course of action.

Sending prayers for your little fellow.

Be sure to update us in this thread with regard to his condition after his vet visit.

Best wishes

On our way to the vet. Any music recommendation to calm them? They are scared a little while traveling but now started talking to each other. But in case if they yell again. Would appreciate it. He seems much better now but still has a little swollen crop but he drank lots of water when he woke up and gis droppings are fine but dont wanna risk. Hope for the best. Their cage is covered though. Thanks Faerybee for your wishes. 😊

My boy likes pop music and my girl like classical violin pieces. I think any music helps chill them out - I use Pan pipes to soothe & calm. Good luck at the vets fingers crossed let us know how you get on.

What tests I should ask for if Rio is little under the weight? Vet said he is little under the weight and under the weather. Needs antiboitics to put in his water.

She said the Rio has some crop infection she told me the name but I forgot and thats causing him diareah and swollen crop. Gave me antiboitics to put in his water for 10 days. Do I still have to seprate him from others? She said it depends on me doesnt need to though and she said others can drink that water too as usually other buddies pick up with same problem otherwise. Btw he is eating now and drinking.
