Can you get her to the vet today? If the bird has stopped eating and has become weak then she has a very slim chance to make it through the night. She needs to be put on oxygen and be crop fed immediately if she has any chance to make it.

So my poor siren got a sinus infection and a respiratory infection i feel so bad for not noticing sooner. I have to hand feed her every couple of hrs but he says it dhould be okay as long as i keep her eating
Its so frustrating i have an air purifier and i change the paper and clean bars everyday for exactly this reason

I am so very glad she got to a vet. I had a feeling something wasn't right with her. Don't blame yourself. You'd be surprised how many pet owners don't even notice until it is too far gone to save them. You noticed such a small thing as her flying funny.... that is a huge thing.... most people don't notice until they are already puffed up and lethargic. You are very in tune with her... good on you.

I am so glad you took her, sounds like she is on her way to feeling better.

Baytril is a broad-spectrum antibiotic. I would ask for something that targets respiratory/sinus infections..like doxycycline/vibromycin or enrofloxcin.
