Your bird needs to be examined by an Avian Vet ONLY right away because something very bad is wrong. You say this happens after a bath, and if you are using any chemicals in the bath water, it is poisoning him. Use only boiled, filtered warm not hot water with nothing added. Use a plastic or glass plant mister/sprayer bottle and make sure nothing except plain water is used in it.

Your bird needs to be eating baby parrot handfeeding formula using a syringe until he is around 3-4 months old. Then the weaning process can be begun though it will still take a while. He will also still need handfeeding during weaning period at least twice a day and more if he's not eating enough. Wean him onto organic high quality pellets like Harrisons, found here, if you can get them into your country. If not, find something there that is organically grown which means no pesticide, fertilizer residues and no preservatives or other chemicals in the food.

My advice is to get him to an Avian Vet because this sounds like either his food, water, or something in the environment is toxic and is killing him.

Find an Avian Vet
