Hi and welcome to the forum! I moved your question here to the proper section so that other members can help you as well.
How old is Kiki? Did the brother die of an illness?
Two things could be going on here, both at the same time. First, if his brother was sick, Kiki could be sick as well and need avian vet care as soon as possible so that he will survive. The second thing that is going on is for sure happening - Kiki is grieving his brother. He needs extra attention from you, since he is now alone for the first time ever. He needs company when he eats, and time to be sad with you. He misses his brother, and only hard work from you will help him become a happy and active bird again. However, make sure he isn't also sick by taking him to an avian vet. You also NEED to make sure he isn't losing weight by weighing him every morning on a gram scale (a kitchen scale works nicely), since they are so small that any weight loss can be devastating.

Sorry for your loss. If one bird dies from sickness, the the other is in grave danger ( even if they are not the same species). Please get to an avian vet. Hurry!

There is a depression going on here and this could lead to other health problems. Make new friends with the brother and make him the #1 attention receiver! Treats galore! Yum Yum's everywhere! Plenty of sunshine and every time you enter the room, be cheerful and go to the cage and pay attention to him. Do not feel sorry for him, he needs positive attention!

Let us know what's going on....WE care!

David and Bogie.

I'd second everything that's been shared. I'm very sorry for your loss and the grief of the one remaining with you.
