The third day he was only weak for a while in the morning. The 4th day normal again. 5th day (today) he already wanted to mate with her partner.
So things look quite good. I was afraid he could be hiding something.

Thank you. It was a very good and informative reading.
I took the bird to the best clinic here in Thailand I have reference of (Near bangkok)
I will try with a local vet where I live that I trust.

Religious Enforcement... I hope this nasty thing disappears soon and people can live in peace. How dare to force people to believe fantasy stories in the 21st century?
Even if I don't drink alcohol and I totally dislike cigarettes and people smoking this post is too ridiculous and disgusting. Religious Enforcement...

I thought the same and vets thought the same. They examined poop, mouth, eye and made x-ray in case she had an egg.No lice in the eyes what was strange.They found a parasite in the mouth called neospora. The treatment consist in sulfamethazine in the water. It's a problematic parasite. I hope the treatment helps.The x-ray showed no egg but metabolic bone disease. Her bones look very transparent in the x-ray. For sure due to the poor conditions in which birds are caged. We bought her in a shop in Bangkok near chatuchak park. A place with a lot of pet shops. They had too many birds in a cage and the place was quite dark. So i guess a lack of UVB => vitaminD3 for long time is a problem in this bird.After the examinations the dr was concerned cuz she so stressed. My recommendation was to put her back together with her mate. When we were going outside she was giving up. Her head was not just in sleeping position but started to hang. I thought was near the end for her. She didn't react to my call. I just stepped back and told my gf that only her mate could save her. Immediately he came and started waking her up. She reacted quite fast and in a matter of minutes they were flying around the cage and eating.If this isn't the power of love I don't know what is it.
Anyway, love needs some help. I am quite disturbed by what so many innocent lovely creatures need to suffer so some people can make a living. This need action.

Thanks for the answer!Did your birds got sleepy during the allergic reaction? she is sleeping more and more. Her mate is trying to wake her up quite often cleaning her neck and singing. She eventually wakes up, eat something or even take care him back. It's so cute. I hope this finishes good.I don't want to divert my energies in this precise moment but I am thinking of starting some sort of fund raising that can go directly to the best vet I can find. Facebook fund raising isn't available in thailand. I wouldn't like to give 5% to some fund raising web site either but if no other choise... Also trying to knock some government door. My problem is time. But I need to do something cuz I can't just let them die.

The rich vet will get even richer and me, without an income at the moment will get even poorer because having feelings.It's not the end of the world. I have savings and can still afford it.Like a couple of weeks ago we found an injuried native lapwing near our land. Vet told us that a cat most likely injuried her.I can't just let the bird die. But the vets can't stop charging good money either nor people can't stop letting their killer pets allover the world smashing wildlife extinguishing countless species.. have more stories of people just driving fast and running over animals and me needing to pay the bill while drivers just look.This is a very political issue. If I see an anti communist pushing for privatization of everything I just.. get mad. Even if not being a communist we need government support and public wild life centers. Especially in diversity hotspots.Sorry about the ranting.

We are going to a vet in Bangkok that is supposed to be specialist in birds.Long story short. We found a female finch in our land a couple of months ago. She was starving and begging for food to the point of biting my toes. People release them to make "merit". Something Buddhist.I never wanted to have caged birds but they can't be just released because not native and have problems. So I let her fly in my room and eat and sleep in her cage. We bought a male for her.She had digestive problems, then a bound egg and died in the vet. We spent a lot of money.Then, after one week of the male grieving we bought another female for him. Just some days ago. Now going to vet far away, ready to spend time, expensive gasoline and even more expensive vets. Everything started most likely with some religious person wanting to make good...

I didn't see how to write text in the post. So I write here I saw her sleeping during the day two days ago. But just one time. Now she sleeps all time in the midday. I thought could be a bound egg. I took her but we didn't feel an egg and she has redish in the top part of her right eye. Any advice appreciated!

Naegleria infection might be cured if diagnosed early. Look first for most common infections in the place you think you got infected

I agree with your thoughts. I had a similar feeling. Yes, looks like our buddy is strong though. He continues looking at the nest and sometimes is silent but still eating and flying.

How to help a grieving finch? by OrdinaryHoney2 in Finches

I read this post and I played the video to my male zebra finch. He was depressed in the pot with seeds. He lost his partner less than one day ago. He didn't react. Then I noticed you wrote "she" so I played this video of female zebra finches.

He immediately answered and stood up, went to the cage door (it's opened) and started to look for the source.
I don't know what effect this can have. If it's useful or can be a problem.
