I've put him in a box with water and bread crumbs, he doesn't seem well, before I put him in a box, he was trying to find a safe place to sleep at.

He didn't eat or drink, and was trying to bury his head into the box for some reason. I observed him and he was trying to bury his head into one of the corners of the box. He's now asleep (i think) hes breathing and standing on 2 legs. I need help, and fast, my family doesn't want to take him to the vet and I don't know what to do, will he die?

Do you have a hotwaterbottle to keep him warm? You can cover the hotwaterbottle with a soft blanket and put him next to it to get some heat. Breadcrumbs are not very nutritious, rather offer him seed. You can try to get him to drink by dipping the tip of his beak (not over the nostrils) in a small bowl of water. You might have to do this a couple of times till he drinks. Don't put water in his mouth, he can easily aspirate.

Check for any injuries, esp under the wings and body. You can also check inside his beak and the back of the throat for yellow growths that might indicate canker. What do the droppings look like? Can you post some photos?

He refused to drink or eat even with your advice. He passed away last night. Still sad my family wouldn't allow me to take him to the vet.

He was too far gone already. I don't think a vet could have helped him at that stage. Thanks for giving him a peaceful place to go. xx

He may have TRICHOMONIASIS (canker) please contact an avian specialist or contact a wildlife specialist
. See if mouth is funny(wet). And please research info on your phone.
