puffed up bird is sick
by: Tracie

Awww, poor thing is sick most likely. You need to take the bird to an avian vet for an exam so you can get a prescription for exactly what is wrong with it. I would take the other bird too, because if it might get what the other bird has if it is an illness instead of a disease.

Find an Avian Vet

If at all possible, put the sick bird in a small cage with the perches at the lowest they can go. A towel on the floor of the cage is good, in case the bird falls. Of course, you need to put the pellet and water dishes at the level of the lowest perch.
