Default Just a quick question

Hi all!!! I have a lovely male budgie around 9 years old and never had any problems, but today he did something really random. I gave him some millet and he ate quite a bit, after he was flying around regurgitating seed everywhere (all over my head and face) I’m not sure if this was vomiting or did he just stuff his face too much.

Basically should I be worried, should I take him to the vet or should I remove the millet from his cage. His poop is fine, feathers aren’t ruffled up he is very lively. I think it just made me freak out a little bit because I have seen him regurgitate to a mirror but not like this flying around trying to expel the food.

Many thanks for the advice in advance

A couple of times I have had a situation where one of my birds overexerted himself and vomited afterwards and then was fine. If that seems like what might have happened to your bird just keep a close watch on him and if you see him continue to expel seed try to determine if he is vomiting or regurgitating. Regurgitating is a controlled motion usually towards an object, vomiting is uncontrolled and the bird will generally move its head back and forth to expel the vomit. If it is vomiting and it continues, you need to see an avian vet to determine the cause.

Hi

When a bird is regurgitating, it is more of a controlled motion as posted above. When they are vomiting, they will fling it all over. I’ve never heard of them doing it while flying, but watch him closely. If he is vomiting, you will see evidence of it spattered all over the cage. It isn’t normal for birds to vomit from overeating. If you see this again, or have a feeling that something is off, don’t hesitate to see an avian vet.

Please read through the Stickies and Articles provided here. You’ll find a wealth of information on caring for budgies, as well as answers to many questions.

When submitting photos, we find that a photo sharing service (such as Imgur) works best.

Looking forward hearing more about your budgie .

Hi there and to the forums!

You've been given great advice. If he was doing it while flying, it was most likely vomiting as regurgitating is controlled and done towards an object or other bird/person. If he's completely back to normal now, something could have upset his digestive system, and keep an eye on him to ensure it doesn't happen again. If he's now lethargic or not eating (or showing any other symptoms), you should get him to an avian vet right away.

Meanwhile, you've come to a great place to learn even more about the best of budgie care practices! Please be sure to read though the forums' many budgie articles and "stickies" to ensure you're up to date on everything. If you have any questions after doing so, don't hesitate to ask as we'd love to help.

Hope to see you around and meet your handsome guy soon!

Fingers crossed he feels better

Cheers
