The only thing we can suggest is to take your bird to an avian vet. If you don't have tests run to find out exactly what is wrong, you might end up treating the wrong thing and your bird will die before what is really wrong gets treated.

If your bird drinks from a dish instead of a Lixit water bottle then it could have a bacterial infection. Water dishes need to be cleaned every 3 hours to keep bacteria from developing.

If you take your bird to a vet and get antibiotics, please purchase some Bene Bac to restore the intestinal flora that the drugs kill.
