Your bird is very unwell and needs to be seen by an avian vet as a matter of urgency.

The fact that the bird is not taking food properly will make it weaker, and birds cannot usually fight off illnesses without veterinary intervention.

Please get the bird to an avian vet ASAP.

Best of luck.

Thanks for getting in contact.

Your bird needs to be seen in person by an avian vet. No vet can diagnose or prescribe treatment over the Internet without running tests etc.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
