Default Overheating

Our first feather-baby, Job (who is a girl despite the name... needless to say we didn't know gender at the time of naming) is just over a year old now. For the past few days she has been showing signs of being overheated. I understand that this is normal after exertion, but she is keeping her wings slightly out even when she hasn't been doing anything strenuous. Also, her feet seem a tad on the warm side. These symptoms are not 24/7, but fairly frequent lately. She is displaying no other symptoms of sickness at all, and is her normal, slightly grumpy self. We do live in Maine and it is finally getting warmer here, but as none of our other birds seem to be having an issue with the temperature we are slightly concerned. I wanted to check in here to see if this can be normal for whatever reason we may not be aware of before we subject her to the stress of a vet visit, since the nearest avian vet is over an hour away from us.

Is Job currently molting?
Have you offered her a bath or tried misting her lightly?
Spray the mist up into the air and let it settle down over her on it's own - don't spray her directly.

How many other budgies are housed with Job?

Job is a frequent molter, though she doesn't seem to be at the moment.
She LOVES baths. Just had one this morning, actually, after we saw that she was attempting to take a bath out of one of the cage waterers. Now that it's warmer she'll likely be getting them more often.
She is housed with 3 other birds in a large cage; Deeno, Buddy and Star, all of whom are of indeterminate sex except for Buddy who is very clearly male.

Honestly, since she's not showing any other symptoms, maybe she is just warm. Does she stop doing it after bathing, when she's cooled down?

If you can post photos of the other budgies taken in natural light, we will be able to determine their gender for you

Thanks so much for the responses; I figured she was likely just warm as she is displaying no other indications of anything.

After a little cajoling, we managed to get a picture of Deeno (left) and Star (right). Deeno is somewhere around a year, Star maybe 10 months... hard to tell since they are all petshop birds. We have been VERY lucky in that regard and we have a great little flock. Both of their ceres have changed color since we got them.



Not sure why the image doesn't show up here (size or dimensions or something I imagine) but it's clickable and works fine that way.
