    The Vet said my bird is very sick with a Bacterial and Viral dease
    which is deadly and highly contagious. All my birds are infected
    now and I have 20. They have to have medicines from the vet to get
    over this, so I won't lose my whole flock. They are quarantined
    with no birds out and no birds in until her gives them a clean bill
    of health. This is very expensive, but necessary to keep them
    alive. My advice to you is to get medical help now.
