Sun conure feeding problems

It sounds to me you need to take the bird to your avian vet that hopefully you take all your birds to before selling them.

If you are a breeder, then you should have a very good relationship with your avian vet, and you might can even call and ask for advice without even bringing the bird in. I suspect the bird has an illness and the vet will want to do a blood test and exam though.
