Bird found sleeps a lot

It is possible your bird has a disease from being outside with wild birds. It is also possible that even though you got the bird some healthy food, it is not eating it. Sometimes it takes a bird a long time to eat anything different than it is used to eating.

I suggest you Find an Avian Vet to examine the bird to make sure it does not have an illness or disease. Then once it is well please read our Switching Budgies To Pellets article if this is a budgie parakeet.
