there are many illnesses that a bird can get. a few signs are if your bird is not eating or drinking enough, if your bird is sitting at the bottom of the cage a lot/ all the time . if you see any of those symtomes then you should see your local vet. 1 other symtom of being sick is if your bird is behaving differantly to what it normaly behaves.

A health parakeet will have shiny feathers, clear eyes, shiny beak, and a cere that is free of drainage. A fluffed parakeet that sits at the bottom of the cage is very sick and needs attention immediately.

A female parakeet has blue-tipped wings and a male parakeet has red-tipped wings.

No, a parakeet is a tropical bird from Australia. In temperatures less than the sixties it is likely a parakeet will get sick. Escaped parakeets have no chance surviving a northern winter.

I recommend calling the vet and making an appointment for your parakeet. Be sure to explain the symptoms so that he or she can figure out what the problem is.
