I have a question about Charlie, my male bird pacific parrotlet

Hi, I need help with my parrotlet and I dont have any vets near by.
I got him around a month ago and the seller claimed he was about 3 months old. Since I've got him, he does not eat anything apart from millet seeds. I tried to give him fresh foods of all kinds in different shapes and sizes.I've tried to make a veggi mash and feed him through a syringe but only little manage to go in him. Right now his feathers are fluffed and hes sleeping in the day time which is unusual behavior for him .. pls help us :/

You can give it vitamins during two weeks.If Charlie does not feel better after taking vitamins the first five days,or Charlie was worse,then it might be an infection of the crop by fungi between other reasons.

Kind regards
