I was wrong, it turned out to be botulism, i took him to an avian vet he had to stay there for 2 days they had him on a drip and had to tube feed him, but he is eating and drinking on his own again so he got to come home, im so happy he is doing better, cost more than $500 but it was worth every cent

Well thankfully you found out in time, My guess is botulism and heat stroke can look similar glad you took him to the vet and he is doing so well.  :thumbsup
