I think SUNNY is SICK. Help please!

Hi everyone!

Just as I was about to leave for work I chased Sunny out the hay barn as he isn’t allowed in there but he just flew down onto the ground when he’d usually fly somewhere else or into the tree opposite. I thought he looked a little fluffed up so I stepped him up onto my hand and took him to get some seed to which he did it want!! This is very unusual Sunny loves his food! I was in a rush for work so asked my partner to keep an eye on him.
He’s since phoned me agreeing that he doesn’t look to well, and poo’s Are slightly runny. He also brought up spit stuff after having a drink.
He’s still enjoying strokes!
I’m so worried! I’m at work so I don’t know what to do!
It was a VERY windy cold night last night, could that have anything to do with it?

Oh no. I don’t have any advice, but I’ll keep you and especially Sunny close in my thoughts.

Re: I think SUNNY is SICK. Help please!

Get him to the vet as soon as you can. You might consider bringing him in for the night to keep an eye on him...I don't know if you do that, but it's something to think about. At leas then your could monitor his poop and eating and ensure that he isn't bullied by other birds.

Re: I think SUNNY is SICK. Help please!

Poor Sunny, I’m sorry your little wild guy is feeling bad. Hopefully he ate something he shouldn’t have but the symptoms could be due to something more serious. I agree with Noodles, if possible bring him inside, monitor him closely, keep him warm, make sure he’s eating and drinking until you can take him for a vet visit. Hugs for you and positive thoughts for Sunny’s quick recovery.

Re: I think SUNNY is SICK. Help please!

With multiple symptoms, your instincts to get Sunny to a vet are keen. Hard to know what is happening; are you able to check his weight?

Hope he feels better by now, please keep us updated!

Re: I think SUNNY is SICK. Help please!

Thank you so much everyone for the quick responses and advice!
It’s been a hectic day at work in the kitchen being understaffed and only 2 of us working in the cafe that I haven’t had time do anything at all! It’s so so typical it happens today on a bank holiday! I also have work tomorrow but I’ll decide what to do tonight!
I’m really hoping his is still hanging about when I get home in a few hours, but it will be dark and he may fly off to bed! If I can finish half an hour early I should hopefully get to see him. However I recon he’ll just be waiting in the barn anayway.
If I do see him, I’ll probably keep him inside tonight where it’s a bit warmer and out of the winter weather. I might syringe feed him critical care ( for small animals)I gave it to him in the early days when he was young and sick.
Thank you for all your get well wishes.
Sorry I’m typing fast as trying to work at same time lol..

Re: I think SUNNY is SICK. Help please!

Thank you everyone

So Sunny was waiting at the front door when I got home, I let him in and sat with him for 15 mins. Partner said before I got home he tucked into some apple. Which he has refused to eat for months so that’s good! He also said he was digging around for roots earlier!
I gave him a drink of water which he drank quite a bit.
His Bum is a little green. And I can’t tell if he breath smells or if he’s been digging on fresh cow poo lol..
He still had his cheeks puffed up.
I’ve put him in the outside Aviary tonight as I don’t think the sudden change of temperature would be good for him in the house being warm and then going back out into the cold?
He’s still active, and making his little sqawrk that he makes when he wants attention.
Fingers crossed he will be much better by the morning. Gosh I hope so!!
If he is the same but no worse tomorrow, I’ll make an appointment for the vet for Wednesday. If he is sicker in the morning I’ll have to phone in sick to work and take him in the morning!
