Default Budgie Body Language?

Hello!
I just had a concern about lil Archie, because he was doing this a lot yesterday, and if someone could tell me what it means, that would be really helpful. I'm worried that I'm making him unhappy in some way :/
Picture: (sorry about the quality, I had to take it from afar)

Your picture did not show up.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

You can practice uploading pictures in the "Test Forum"

Some of my budgies like to lean over and some like to hang upside down from their swings!

I have one budgie that likes to practically lie on his tummy "just because" and one that looks like he's "chewing gum" all day long.

As long as Archie is eating, drinking and pooping normally his behavior looks perfectly normal for a budgie.

My guy does this on his trapeze swing especially! It's completely normal, sometimes they just like being all hunched over like that

I have one bird that is just plain lazy for like of a better term. He prefers to be passive and crunches down like this for awhile. He may do this for 15 minutes or longer. Then the next time I turn around he is as active as can be. I think in my case it is right after he fills his crop, he wants to sleep it off...
