Default Closing eyes

Hi all
I have a question. I have had one budgie (Jasper) for 3 years . About 2 months ago I added another. I was told the new budgie was male, but I'm thinking he is a she. Anyway my question is whenever I get close and talk to her she always closes her eyes. She stays close to me and isn't afraid, but her eyes are always closed. Any ideas as to why she does this?

She may simply be closing her eyes as she listens to you as a sign of contentment.

Have you tried playing the "blinking game" with her?

When she looks at you - blink very slowly and then watch to see if she blinks back at you in return.
If so, repeat the process several times.
Most budgies enjoy playing this little game.

You're very welcome.

What is the name of the little girl who now has a new game to play with you?
