They don't look well, feathers also look as if in poor condition. Do they have access to: direct sunlight, grit, vitamins? Do you give apple cider vinegar in their drinking water twice a week? 5 ml acv to 1 litre of water.

i didn't know about the apple cider vinegar. yes they do have sunlight the cage is outside. i give them a little thing of water i clean it out everyday 3 times a day.

what else must i give them. i am going to the shops today i will ask for apple cider vinegar.

what vitamins must i give them? cause i want them to live for 21 years.

If you have a petshop closeby, get some grit and vitamins for birds. The acv you can get from a supermarket. Do you have cats? If not, why don't you do a soft release? They are already outside so must be used to the area. Keep them another 2 weeks and then just open the door and let them go out by themselves. Leave food and water for them on top of their cage. They will stick around. To be kept in an aviary for the rest of their lives, won't be a good quality of life.
