Default Budgie Acrobatics

We recently acquired 2 budgies (named Emy and Karin) from a shelter. They have been with us, in quarantine, for about a week now. We were told that Emy was violent to Karin but we believe some feeding behavior was being mis-read; these birds get very depressed when separated, and are very affectionate when together.

Now I know these birds are currently under a great deal of stress, but Emy is literally doing acrobatics in the cage; just today she's taken to putting one leg up over her wing, behind her own head, and just hanging onto the side of the cage. In this position, she will even allow herself to be touched as long as you're not trying to move her. She'll also do complete flips while clinging to the side of the cage. Any thoughts on how to read this behavior?

It sounds like she's just having fun Budgies are very acrobatic and the antics they get up to are often quite humorous to watch!

It's good to hear that Emo and Karin are doing well together so far. We'd love to see pics of them if you have any to share!

Emy sounds like a real little character! She must be happy since she's started doing acrobatics already.
Photos would be great...

Sounds like normal budgie behavior to me. She must feel safe. Thanks for adopting them.

How adorable. It’s normal behavior. I’ve personally not had a budgie who did acrobatics, but it is not uncommon for budgies, depending on the individual .

Oh yes, budgies can be little energetic and playful critters when it comes to acrobatics! One budgie I had at some point used to swing herself upside-down on the perch for the fun of it, or to get my attention.
