Hi, I've had my budgies for just over a week now and I'm seriously concerned about my female budgie. Ever since I got her she's been pretty quiet and doesn't fly around like her male counterpart. The only time she does zoom around is when I come near the cage, talk to them or put my hand in the cage.
Since Wednesday however, I noticed her droppings were a bit wet. Not completely watery, just a bit soft and wet. Today however, she did an extremely large dropping and I'm very concerned. She just sits inside the cage with fluffed up feathers, and after doing the dropping, she's just sitting on the food bowl, half asleep, half awake. Any advice would be appreciated
Having your new 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.
The best advice that we can give in this situation is above.
All new pets should be taken to the vet for a wellness exam. A bird needs to see an avian vet. It’s fairly normal for a new budgie to be quiet, but since you say she’s been sitting a lot and puffed up, you’ll definitely want to take her in. If you need help locating an avian vet, let us know.. keep us posted on your girl.
