Default Squeaky noise from budgie

Hi my budgie is making a very strange squeaky noise that Iím worried about. She is eating and drinking fine and ok in herself. She has always been a nervous bird and never taken to being handled. Not sure what this noise means but she does it a lot and havenít heard her tweet since this new noise started. Has this happened to anyone else? Iíve tried to upload a video but not working for some reason. Thanks!

Hi there and to the forums!

I've made your first post its own thread so people will see it and reply.

Budgies are excellent mimics and so she could have just picked up a new sound from somewhere. Additionally, budgies love to experiment with all the noises they could make, so if she's healthy, active, alert, etc. with no other symptoms, that's all it likely is. However, if she's squeaking when she breathes and it's not a deliberate noise, or she is lethargic, fluffed up, etc., then it may be time to take her in to the avian vet for a visit

Meanwhile, you've come to a great place to learn even more about the best practices for budgie care! Please be sure to read through the many budgie articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to ensure you're up to date on everything. If you have any questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help

We'd love to meet your budgie when you get a chance

Cheers

Is it ok you think that she makes the noise constantly? She can stop it but itís only for a short time and itís all she does. In bed I can still here her so it is through the night when itís dark and usually there is no sound from her.

If your budgie is making the noise constantly, and it's not voluntary (ie. She makes the noise while breathing as opposed to a deliberate noise like chirping), then I'd be getting her seen by her Avian vet, just to be safe.

On another note, I'd get some bird toys to go in their cage. Most budgies love to play with all different kinds of toys and they need the entertainment to stimulate their brain and keep them from getting bored. They generally love toys they can shred, or toys that make noise. Just avoid mirrors as these can cause problems with the bird becoming obsessed with their reflection.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

It sounds as though your budgie has a respiratory problem and needs to be seen by an Avian Vet.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

Good advice given in the posts above. It definitely does sound like she needs to see an avian vet ASAP. Please keep us posted on how your girl is doing.
