Yes, your bird is very sick and the other conure at your sister's house is also probably sick. Bacterial/Viral infections are highly contageous, so both birds need to be taken in at the same time to be diagnosed and treated for infection. Both birds will get sicker and sicker until they are taken in for medical services with an AVIAN VET ONLY. Do not take any birds to a regular dog and cat vet unless they have an Avian Vet on staff. Avian Vets are the only ones licensed to treat birds, and always take your birds to an Avian Vet.

You do not have time to lose here, and both birds need to be taken into the Avian Vet as soon as is possible. Also stop moving bird back and forth between houses in the winter when it is so cold.

Thanks for writing,

You need to take it to an avian vet. It really sounds sick. Better to be safe than sorry.
