    About 3 days My female 12 yr old started acting wierd,
    sounds like a cough (beak wide open and looks hard to
    breathe)heard clicking in chest (but not now) no snot
    coming out nose, hasnt spoken/screamed as usual, very
    quiet. Isnt drinking water. Now in last 2 days seems
    better but a sneezing sorta sound, click (rubs beak on
    ground alot while clicking sound). Got her to eat pear
    puree' and a few green peas and 1 kidney bean. Today a
    little more active then it suddenly returns, then goes and
    playful again! Gave her plain yogurt (she liked) puree
    pears, and took a few seeds too, cant get her to drink
    water (worried about dehydration). Cant afford vet just
    had emergency surgery on my golden retriever which took
    every cent! I did alot of research and have been trying
    things. Is humidty by shower good? (have moved her into
    bathroom added heating pad below smaller cage/closed off
    ac vents) cause right after her symtoms immediately flare
    up like gasping. Once the humidity is gone she seems
    better again. We live in florida and the humidity just
    ended. Any suggestions? Am getting some Marvel Aid Bird
    Antibiotic to try as a antibiotic if its respiratory.
    She is a egg layer but its been 3 days and nothing, i dont
    think she is binding either not with these symtoms. Oh
    first day her crop felt very full today its soft to the
    touch. (sorry trying to think of everything). Please
