Default Such a weird little bird

Luna is turning out to be a bit of a weird one. I know its normal for them to roll around or bath in wet greens but she takes it one step further and lays on her back in her dishes, preferable on leftover greens but also in her pellet dish. I even caught her laying on grapes once.

Funniest thing I ever saw was looking over at the cage and seeing just her legs sticking out of a stainless steel bowl.

Since I started feeding them greens out of the transparent bathing dish, I can watch her roll over and stay there for seconds at a time before flipping back over. She will do this for 10-15 minutes at a time.

Been trying to get a video but she stops everytime I grab my phone. Anyone else have a budgie with odd little quirks?

That is too funny! Niko is a weirdo and likes sitting inside of his bowl to eat

Hahaha! I would love to see a video if you are able to capture one of Luna on her back. Lemon Drop is not that funny, but she does like to sit in her pellet bowl sometimes while eating. I think sometimes she just sits there. Budgies are goofy!

It would be delightful to see Luna's antics!
Hopefully you'll be successful in capturing a video at some point -- I know we'd all enjoy seeing it.

Oh yeah, Luna also sits in her dish to eat. I'll try to get a video today, I turned the shutter sound off so maybe I can be sneaky.

This is the best I could get, she didn't flip completely over and the quality is terrible but you can at least see some of her behavior.
