He's randomly freaking out in his cage, I think he's really trying to get to his food

Edit: He just got to it =)

Depends, has he been eating a lot of fresh foods? That can sometimes make their poop a bit runny-sounds gross. Cyberbud and Tweetymom have been BOTH telling you to quaratine birds to stop the spread of diseases. I would seperate them and place them in different rooms.

My mind was already set to get her a friend, I just needed advice so I can make him feel more comfortable

I separated them and he's really been trying to adjust to the cage and try to get his food, but I think he's having trouble since the cage is so small.

His poop is still wet, I got him from a big cage that over 10 parakeets shared, the only food they had was the normal bird seeds

Is he sick?

Edit: I left my bird in my room, and brought the new one in mine to listen to music like I do with Paris everyday. About 20 minutes later Paris starts screaming, and so I bring her here and she's happy and chirping now. How can I separate them better during the day? I want to play music for the new bird since he still looks scared, and Paris is just used to it now. I put them in different rooms when they sleep, what can I do for the day?

Actually as long as you keep them separated from each other, I personally feel that separate rooms are a little overkill. If your new bird is looking sick then separate rooms. But I would hope that you would not buy a sick looking bird.

I have never quarantined my birds, I have been VERY lucky that they have all been healthy.

Always a quaranteen period is good.

Uh, he has poop sticking out of him, I've never seen this before with my birds, should I be worried? His droppings are still wet

He just sits in his cage not making sounds or playing with the toys, and he yawns sometimes, how can I entertain him? He doesn't respond to music

@BLR, you said you never quarantined your birds, would it be okay to put him with Paris when I know he's not sick?

Edit: He randomly started moving around a little, now he's sitting quietly on his water cup

You don't know he is well yet. So I say NO for the full 30 days. It sounds like you may have a sick bird. What do you mean he has poo sitcking out of him. Is it stuck to his vent feathers?

Yea, I cleaned most of it off, there's still some there, he's sitting on his water container, and he looks really bored/tired

His head is down and his eyes are closed

Birds don't get "bored." It sounds like he may be sick. How long has he been acting like that.
