Default Budgies showing symptoms

Their tails are bobbing slightly, and their cere’s look a bit crusty. There’s also a bit of peculiar poop, the most concerning one being a long straight line of poo. Other than that, they seem okay. No vomiting, over excessive sneezing, or anything like that. I’m just scared for them. The nearest avian vet is over four hours away and I just don’t know what to do. Bellow is a picture of both birds that show their cere’s, and the piece of poo I was talking about. I regularly clean their cages and their toys as well. Is it dietary? I’m switching from the garbage Walmart brand to Zupreem as soon as I possibly can. My birds are awfully young and I’d hate for something to happen to them.

They look fine to me

Both of them are females, and they are both in breeding condition which is why their ceres are that crusty brown colour. It's totally normal and nothing to be worried about.

A slight tail bob is normal, it's how budgies keep their balance while perched. It's the equivalents of us holding our arms out to our sides while walking a tight rope.

Poop can and does come in many shapes and colours, and this poop still looks normal even though it's straight. It's likely just the way it fell and splattered on the paper.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

I recommend you remove the wooden dowel perch in the cage and replace it with natural wooden perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

Pressure Sores

The information in this link will give examples of better options for perches:

Essentials for a Great Cage

How long have you had your budgies?
What are their names?

I agree with Michelle that your birds look healthy in the pictures you posted and she's given you good information regarding their droppings.

I'd suggest you look for an Exotic Pet Veterinarian who deals with small birds that is located near your home so you will know whom to contact if the time ever comes you have an emergency medical situation with one of your budgies.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

We have lots of great up to date information on Budgie care in the Stickies and the links given to you above. You’ll also find answers to some common questions, so please read when you get the chance .

I agree with Michelle. All of those things look and sound normal in this case.

Your budgies are my favorite color. I absolutely love pied yellow and blue!

Thank you all! ^^ I am very relieved to know they are both okay, it was the dryness that was just a bit concerning on the ceres. I’m also very greatful for the advice, and I have been planning to replace their perches and recommendations of what types and where to get them are welcomed. They are named MJ and Parker, as I named it before his sex was identifyable. I just hoped she wasn’t sick. ^^; Again, thank you all so much. I’ve only had these guys for a few months and I worry about them like they are my children.

If you go on Amazon, and search for natural bird perch, you’ll find an array of appropriate branch style perches. Some single, and some with multi branches, as well as natural wood platforms, etc. of course you don’t necessarily have to buy at Amazon, just an example.
