Sunshine, my little budgie, is eating like crazy.
She can only eat millet spray, anything else she throws up violently.
She doesn't look thin (she's not caged, and I can't feel her), but I think it's food building up in her crop. I think she can't digest it, that's why she is hungry all the time.
Her vent is clean
She is puffed up and sleeps a lot.
Her digestive problems have been going on for a long time; on and off for over a year.
There are no good avian vets around here, could somebody please give me some remedy (preferably home remedy) I could try?
If you could, that would be wonderful

For digestive problems, the following liquid helps a lot.

1. Camomile tea - brew a bag in boiling water. Cool down. Dilute with 3 parts of water. Serve whole day with no other water source.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar - 2 drops in 5 tablespoons of water. Serve whole day with no other water source.

Both items mentioned above can be bought in a reputable supermarket which sells international brand. Bragg's brand is good for ACV (item 2) due to presence of 'mother' in the bottle.

Good luck to your search for home remedy. :)
