Default HELP! New budgie acting weird

Two days ago, I got a new budgie, I did handle him from the start, then I left them alone until now. One of them is acting funny, his feet won't bend right, and he kept falling off the perch, so he's on the ground, otherwise, he looks ok, but is a little grumpier. What is happening, and what can I do to help? (My mom very rarely lets me take a bird to the vet)

I put him in a cardboard box with lining, food, and water, and all he does is crawl to the other side of it, and sit there.

I'm sorry your little newbie is causing you such worry.

Is there any way you could post a picture of his feet? And maybe also one of his whole body showing him on the bottom of the cage?

I must also ask, is he eating? How do the droppings look?

Sorry, I can't take any pictures right now, but his feet look normal, and even though I gave him carrots, he still just eats millet...

I am so sorry I cannot help, but do you have any baby food to give him. Try him to drink some water, so he do not dehydrate. I think someting with a little bit of salt or sugar, but it not cramps that he get?
