Hey everyone! Been a long while since I last posted.
My budgie Skye's been enjoying her flight cage for two years now, and she just turned 7 years old! Though the past few days she's been acting weird. Healthy otherwise, but she's been climbing around the cage nibbling the bars. At first I looked and thought she was trying to get at some dust that settled on the cage, so I gave all of the bars a good wipe down. She's still at it though, and then she went to her stainless steel water dish and started nibbling the underside of it for some reason.
She has plenty of things to chew, lots of wood perches of different shapes and sizes, and two mineral blocks. I'm not sure why she's doing this? I also just put a carrot in her cage. I wonder if she's just being weird?
Her droppings also look normal and she's got a regular energy level, so I don't think she's sick. Just a little worried about her, I guess.
Also, her flight cage doesn't have paint on the bars so I don't have to worry about her chewing that off, I was just a little concerned about why she's doing it.
