I just wanted to add that it's really not recommended to have a mirror in a budgies cage as they can easily become obsessed with their reflection.

Several people on the forums have budgies who do this- it’s nothing to worry about

That's exactly what I call the behavior "chewing gum". My Scooter does it and has been checked by his Avian Vet.
He's perfectly healthy and the vet indicated the behavior is no cause for alarm. Scooter just enjoys making that motion with his beak.

ReneBC's budgie does the same thing.

I'm sure Ollie is just fine.

Birds are incredibly resilient creatures. Apple will eventually adjust to new circumstances, environment, routine, etc. Once he gets settled he’ll be just fine.

I also think it’s a better idea to keep him solo than risk adding more potential problems. Good luck with everything.
