Default Fast breathing

I got my budgies yesterday, one is a female who seems to be acting just fine, a little aggressive to the male but not much. The other, Abaddon is not moving around as much and seems to be breathing heavier than she is. Also opening and closing his beak a lot. I was wondering if this is just because he is nervous still from the new environment or if I should be worried.

The opening and closing of his beak could just be yawning, but the heavy breathing I'm not sure.
Are you quarantining your budgies? Quarantine is very important.

As long as you got them at the same time from the same place, you're okay with skipping quarantine.

However, it's perfectly normal for them to be nervous and stressed and heavy breathing is definitely a sign of that. To help them settle in, leave calming music on for them during the day and you can also cover their cage on three sides to help them feel more safe.

In a few days, the heavy breathing should stop and they both should start acclimating to their environment. Remember not to put your hand in the cage or try to touch them for at least two weeks so they feel comfortable in their new home!

This is interesting. Whenever I was close to the cage in my local pet store and saw any new budgies mouth breathing... I thought they might have respiratory issues. But.... they may have been nervous. Because I was looking in and they were new to the environment.

I agree with Star that it sounds as though Abaddon is stressed with the change in his environment and possibly also with the somewhat aggressive behavior of the female.

Give them a few days to settle in and become comfortable and the nervous mouth-breathing/panting should stop.
