I think my budgie might be sick - what should I do?
If you suspect that your budgie is sick, it is best to consult an avian vet as soon as possible. Budgies are masters at disguising illness and often by the time sickness is noticeable, it is very serious. Common signs of illness include less activity than usual and/or less chirpiness than usual, sitting fluffed up and sleeping a lot, lack of appetite or not eating at all, weight loss, discharge from eyes and/or nostrils, less interest in preening and playing, sneezing, wheezing, and inability to perch. Thanks to Sal for the above!
