As Tracie said, please take your bird to an Avian Vet in your driving are as quickly as is possible. She is very, very sick, and you cannot wait to have her examined, diagnosed and treated. Once she stops eating and drinking all together, death is not far away, so do not wait any longer.

In future, when you notice all these signs of illness, take your bird to an Avian Vet because the sicker they get, the harder it is to bring them back up to health, and sometimes they don't make it at all.If she stops eating, you'll have to handfeed her baby parrot formula which can be found here or in most stores carrying bird food and supplies. The Avian Vet can discuss this with you when you take her in. She HAS to eat/drink, and once they stop eating, they have to be fed several times a day, like a baby bird is fed, to keep them alive.

Thanks for writing, and hope she is going to be okay.

The only thing you can do is take your bird to an avian vet right away. You must find out what is wrong in order for a vet to tell you what can be done to fix the problem.

If you need help finding an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page.
