Dr B will need more information before being able to answer your question. Even with more information, however, he may not be able to tell you if your bird is sick because he can't see the bird and examine it. All birds should be seen by an avian vet yearly for an exam and vaccination.

Is your bird fluffy all the time?
Is it eating and drinking as usual?
Has you bird lost weight?
Is your bird less active than normal?
Does your bird only fluff it's feathers when you come near the cage?
What is your bird's diet, is it eating 80% healthy pellets?
