Are her wings always in that drooped position? Do you have sand at the cage bottom, if so I would remove it and line the cage bottom with newspaper or paper towels, if she is ingesting the sand that may not be good for her, budgies do not need grit in their diet and it can cause problems.

No, her wings aren't usually in this position. She was flapping them just before i took the photo.
Yeah, i have always used bird sand. She never goes to the bottom of the cage unless she falls of perches but she immediately climbes back up. So she definitely didn't eat any.

You really need to cut back on the amount of food you are giving her. 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of seed per day is all she needs and the millet should really be only used sparingly as a treat.

Additionally, it would be best if youremove the sand/grit from the cage and stop using it.
