    hmmm.....I think a vet may be your best choice. Either sick or worms?!?! But, in any case, doesn't sound good.

    your bird is panting and needs vit/electrolytes supplied in water ASAP. If you do not have the specific bird electrolytes you can give some pedialyte or gatorade. Tylan or a similar antibiotic addressing respiratory illness would seem to be indicated. ask at your feed store if it is impossible to get to vet.
