Is my Baby Budgie ill?
Hello. i got Billy the budgie 5 days ago, and he is 10 weeks old on Saturday. I have been spending a lot of time with him and he will happily perch on my finger, or go to sleep in the palm of my hand. However, he seems to cling to me most of the time when i'm trying to put him on the perch, and when he gets onto the perch, he jumps straight off and goes to sleep on the floor,a nd this is where he spends most of his time.
I havent seen him drink much, once in 5 days, and i havent seen him eat that much, but he eats his millet spray off the floor a bit. He seems very subdued and sits in the corner of his cage asleep. When you offer him any food out of your hand, he will refuse to eat it. He hangs his wings low and he seems to stretch and clean himself a lot.
I havent let him fly around yet, because i'm trying to get him used to human contact. I just wanted your opinion before i concider taking him to the vet. Is there any special treats i might beable to tempt him with? Thank you!
