Does he eat so often as he did and the amount he used to and the same seeds he used to ?
It also seems like he cannot digest something .. you will find this out if the poop contain whole seed undigestive or anything he eats .,
Does your seed mix contains any pellets or bisquits .. try to avoid them for some days ..
He might also not get enough water .. some vegetables act like sponges with water and since his digestive not used to them cuz he is too young they are not being digest ..

I would try giving him just seed mixture ( remove hulls each day and add some new ) and clean water for 3-4 days and nothing more , if his seed mixture has pellets colorfull things busquits or anything other than just seeds ( fruits , vegs etc ) take them off ( try to check his eating habbits ) ..
If nothing change then might be a lot of causes from minor to serious and you have to see a vet .. in this case follow FaeryBees advice to find someone ....

Unhappy Update

I stopped giving them veg and they stopped eating their seed mix completely. I gave them more veg and they started eating again but still not as much as they use to. So they don't starve I've given them a millet spray.
Their poop is now a yellowish brown and often watery, I can't convince my parents that something is wrong. My mum has been told that they don't like the seed because their still shouting and playing as normal. I've now got three separate mixes in their cage (all mixed with the old seed) but none of it is being touched unless veg is also available.
I would make veg always available but have to many college responsibilities to prepare it daily, could fruity seed mix help?

Take the time to read the stickies and the Budgie Articles.

Budgie Articles

List of Stickies

Be Prepared for Veterinary Care Expense

Saying you "Love" budgies isn't enough to make an individual a good pet owner.

Anyone who is going to own budgies should have the maturity, responsibility and financial means to provide the care they need.

If giving the birds the necessary diet (including fresh vegetables) and getting them veterinary care when needed is too much for you, then you would be better off to wait until you are in a better position with regard to your time, finances and responsibility level before having pets.

I recommend you re-home your budgies to someone who can give them the proper attention, care and love they deserve.

Saying you "love" budgies (or other animals) may be true -- but it simply isn't enough.
Having the responsibility, maturity and financial means to provide the best care possible for any animal under your care is necessary to be a truly loving pet-owner.

Hi Nicalou,

As much as we commend you for loving your budgies and doing all you can for them, sometimes it's not enough if your parents or whoever you're dependent on isn't on board with getting them the care they need. It's important to have the resources to take them to the avian vet as soon as possible, since budgies can deteriorate so quickly.

You need to find a way to get them to eat; it is your responsibility to make time even if you don't have any. I also am a full time student and no matter what, I make time for my baby, even if it means I'm staying up till the wee hours doing homework because I spent the afternoon playing with her, cleaning her cage, etc.

You could even ask your parents to help you prepare their food, if it is too much for you.

If they aren't willing to help you and to commit to veterinary care for your babies, it's important to recognize when you can no longer offer them all the care they need.

Best wishes!

I have to agree that it does seem that you are not able to fully care for your budgies at this time.

As a pet owner, it is up to you too be able to provide what they need.
You are not the only member to have pets and have full time education. Maybe members also juggle full time jobs, families and still take care of their bird.
Your inability to find the time to just prepare some veg for them says to me that you are simply not ready to have birds in your life. You are not prepared to make the time to care for them and you are not currently able to provide them with what they need to be healthy and happy.

When we say this, it is not to be harsh, but to think of both you and your budgies best interests.
How will you feel if you inability to care for them leads to something bad happening?
We know you love them.
Sometimes proving you love something is doing what's best for them, not typing the words onto a keyboard.

I refuse to give up on budgie care, my time management is terrible but I found a blackboard and created this.

It is rather childish and basic, my little sister found it hilarious. I'm prepared to make sacrifices, if I have to wake up at the crack of dawn for my babies I will . I know they eat millet so I put some in a bowl and I'll slowly transfer them onto a seed mix or pellets from that, they still have the dispensers and now have a pot of grit. I'm hoping that if I stick to that schedule it'll lower their stress levels.

Budgies DO NOT need grit.

Have you even read the stickies on the forum?

I'm glad that you've made a schedule and hopefully seeing it written out will help to keep everything done that needs to be done

Budgies do love schedules, so sticking to one is a great idea for their benefit, too.

Budgies do not need grit, and it can cause serious crop problems over time! They hull their seeds, unlike other birds, so do not need help in digesting them

I simply cannot stress strongly enough how important it is that you make the time to read the stickies and the Budgie Articles if you plan to give your budgies the proper care.

Grit- Should You Offer It To Your Budgie?

The Truth About . . . . GRIT

If you are adamant that you will not give up your budgies, PLEASE start reading through the forum stickies.

I understand that there's a lot to go through as a new owner and you have other work to be doing, so start off small.
This is a list of all the stickies on the forum

Have a look and you will see that there's loads of information. If you want to become a better carer for your budgie, you need to set some time in your schedule to read through one sticky daily- more if you have the time.
There are some that are very important that you should start with to learn basic knowledge about your budgies and care. You should be able to judge what will benefit you most yourself. You need to take responsibility and learn as much as you can so we can continue to help you.
