It can be hard to tell when a bird is sick - they don't show the symptoms you're used to with people, dogs, cats, etc. Here are some signs to look for that may indicate something is wrong.

  1. Your budgie has diarrhea, lose droppings, or off-colored droppings.

  2. Your budgie is hunched over with feathers puffed. May be sitting at the bottom of the cage.

  3. Your budgie has a discharge from its nostrils, beak or eyes.

If your budgie is showing any or all of these symptoms, you may want to get it checked by a vet to make sure everything is okay.
