Budgie Appears Sick
Hi, My budge is 4 and a half years old. for the past 2 weeks, I have noticed that his feathers looked fluffed and when he sits his feathers/fluff seems to be touching the perch. He is flying around and eating, he does not seem happy and he is not as chirpy as before and he is not playing with his other budgie friend as he normally does. He is not displaying any other symtoms as sleeping,or diahrea, he does have a clicking sound when he breaths.overall he seems quiet and unhappy, however he does spends a lot of time outside of his cage, but prefers to sit quietly most of the time. I have lost two other budgies to cancer, and although this budge does not have the severe symtoms as the other budgies, I am wondering if this could be cancer. My last budgie has been treated by the Avian Vet but he became worse over the next 2 months and sadly, eventually died.
I will be taking him to the vet, but I am very worried of his prognosis. Could this be something else?
