    Is something wrong?

    We force fed him water. And some food.

    There seems to be a swelling below his right eye.

    Its really hot where i'm from; pakistan. And, there is no vet in the vicinity.
    Please help.

    I have flagyl, paracetamol, calpol, multivitamins with me at the moment.

    Here's a clearer picture.

    When he breaths, his neck moves in and out.

    Poor boy!
    He looks like he has a sinus infection - his nares are clogged with something, dried pus or mucus?
    I can't give you medication advice, but if you search here you may find some; I'm sure an experienced peaperson will show up soon to let you know what would be effective. In the meantime, you might see if you can gently clear his nares so he can breathe better.
    Why did you force feed him, how long has it been since he has eaten or drank water by himself?

    I don't have experience with this myself, but I believe that it was our super-duper-pea health expert @casportpony who recommended looking inside the beak at the roof of the mouth. SOmetimes you can see further evidence of pus clogging the sinuses there. Post a picture if you can.

    We noticed this morning when he didn't move from his perch.

    I cleaned his nare, its only the right one.
    It does look like a sinus infection.

    We brought him inside and out of the heat.

    We force fed him an hour ago. And give him water after short times.

    He calls to his peas outside every now and then. He is responsive. But not active.

    He keeps closing his eyes.

    If he has a sinus infection, should I give him AUGMENTIN?
    If so, how much? Thats the only antibiotic I have.

    @casportpony certainly recommends Augmentin, but you'll have to do a search here to find out about the dosage (or she may give you advice soon!).

    Thank you so much for your support. I appreciate it.

    I checked his throat. Its clean and clear!
    I fed him watermelon and a mash of wheat, and potatoes.

    Waiting for his recovery
