Default Nevi's Behaviors

Never seen a bird do this. SHe likes to kick all the seed out of her bowls (and all over the floor of the cage) and curls up in the bowl likes it's a nest.

She to burrow under blankets or squish herself into corners to get cozy.

Just curious-is she maybe little too young? I feel like (albeit with my massive lack of knowledge) that she looks like she is exhibiting behavior I would expect to see of babies possibly being weaned. It just seems like nest-ish behavior.
Or is she just eccentric?

She does sit on highest perch too but loves her bowl.

She's young, but not what I would consider too young or very recently weaned.
Your budgie could be reminiscing on her past time on the nest, but still given the fact she is a female, it's best to start discouraging this type of burrowing behaviour early on and to not give her dark areas where she can hide herself. https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

You can get a different type of food container with a top on that only allows the head to fit in for feeding purposes. That way, your budgie won't make a mess with the seeds by spoiling them and won't be able to get inside the container.

I agree with Aluz. When I first got Izzy, she would sit on the bottom of the cage and attempt to burrow in the corner. I was afraid she was sick, but first I called the lady I bought her from to see if she had exhibited this behavior previously. She told me that after they had weaned her, they fed her on the ground in the corner, so she was probably looking for food there or trying to make herself feel more familiar. Either way, I was ready to call the vet but after a few days when she got more used to her environment and cage, she was back to perching and eating out of the dishes like a normal bird.

I also had a problem with a previous Budgie hen about trying to make a nest in a food dish. I bought different ones, like the ones Aluz is describing, and that solved the problem. And it also made a whole lot less of a mess! Though Hermes would still attempt to duck underneath them and throw them on the ground, spilling all the seed inside. I now have screw-on dishes with a full cap over the top that have worked splendidly to prevent both problems

Yes! Burrowing is the exact thing she does. Into towels, corners, bowls. Is this a more common female behavior at this age? I've never had any birds do this before (they've all been male although still not sure what sex Tundra is but I think boy).

Ok. I will definitely get some food bowls she can't burrow into..lol.

Tundra was funny, when I first game him a food bowl he threw it upside down so I had to get ones for him that were heavier haha.

Never cease to amuse

Thanks guys!

My Sadie was very young when I got her and did the food bowl thing. In time, they grow out of it.

Default New little girl sleeping normal??

She is 3 or 4 months old I think. She was just dropped off day before by her breeder to store when I bought her.

She likes to lie totally flat on stomach to sleep sometimes. Other times she perches to sleep.

During the day she is maddeningly active and not fluffed or anything.

Thoughts?

That is quite normal behavior for a very young budgie.

I even have some older budgies that occasionally like to nap on their tummies!

Chip did that when he was a baby. It's common and completely normal in budgies, but I know it's unnerving to see them just laying there limp .
