What appears to be obvious here is that your bird is sick and that is why he is not eating. You will need to take him and the other bird to an Avian Vet ONLY to be examined, diagnosed and given meds to treat whatever infection they have. I say "they" because what one has, the other also has as infections are highly contageous.

Your bird is going to die if not given proper medical services. When you can see the keel bone, the bird is not going to last much longer.

Take both birds to only an avian vet because dog and cat vets are not licensed or trained to care for birds and can and do kill them with incorrect diagnosis and treatment.
