Re: Please help!

Get him to a vet ASAP!! He might not have till next week? He doesn't look that great and tail bobbing not a good sign, as could be a respiratory infection.. Also is he preening himself, or not active at all?

Re: Please help!

I can't appreciate anything weird in the pics.. but his behaviors are way off. He sounds sick, and tail Bob is not good.
In the future you can get a kitchen gram scale, and start tracking his weight, that helps keep an eye on health.

Re: Please help!

First of all, Pete is a girl...The blue cere with the white rings around each nostril are very clear, so you've got a little female Budgie in Pete...

If she is tail-bobbing then it's time to go to an Avian Vet immediately, and she needs to have a Fecal Culture/Microscopy done, don't just let the Vet give her antibiotics without running any tests, that is a recipe for disaster, and Exotic Vets often do this, especially with a Budgie...They need to do a Fecal to determine whether it's bacterial, fungal, or something else...And they should also swab around her beak/cere and look at it under the microscope for mites, as they are very common in Budgies as well.
