Default Vomiting / Regurgitation?

Hey guys my hen Span has either vomited or regurgitated... I cant distinguish between the two because she seems healthy and we have just been playing... I gave her some millet and few mins later she violently shook her head and started spraying undigested seed everywhere.... The was however some smaller white foamy bit's here and there. I did notice than when Span and Baxter both jumped onto my hand their feet were unusualy cold.
Poop looks fine... They sit on the lampshade all day and i have newspaper under... Behaviour looks normal... We had also finished playing so i dont think it was 'a gift' for me or Baxter for that matter... He was on the other side of the lampshade.
Anyone?
(edit) :..... The more i have time to think about it now, I do remember it was particularly cold this morning and i do leave a small window open in the living room... The cage is accross the room tho so they weren't directly under a draft.. I also noticed i had sneezed twice today myself... I have put them both to bed for the evening, put the heating on and have placed a small tea light candle on the floor under thr cage just to chace away any nips that may pass by.
Sorry for flooding the feed guys but it is hard to read all the posts while in a panic and you just want answers!
Still looking for any input guys would be great. Thanks again

From your thorough description it really looks like your Span has vomited.
when budgies regurgitate they bob their heads to bring the seed up and they do so in a controlled way. Usually the regurgitated seeds come out clumped together by the spit and when directed towards a toy, the whole clump of seeds falls out. Seeds don't fly out violently in an uncontrolled way when regurgitating, that's typical of vomiting.
Maybe your Span ate too much millet, felt sick and threw up. If she vomits again and you see her fluffed up and not as energetic, then it's best to have her checked by a vet.
I hope this was just a one time occurrence and your Span will be just fine.
Good luck!

Also don't place candles near your budgies as they can be harmful to their respiratory systems. To prevent night frights, you can place a little night light on.

I agree with aluz - it does sound as if Span vomited.

Please replace the candle with a small electric night light so there will be no danger to your precious little birds.

Please be sure to give us an update on Span's condition tomorrow. Hopefully it was a one time thing and she'll be just fine.

Thanks you aluz, ill take away the tea lights right away and put them out woth water so there is no smoke.
That sounds about right... I hope anyway... Ate too much full of excitement and vomited... She does seem fine now and doesn't look 'off'
Ill put them by the radiator but not too close.
Thanks so much, experience is worth more than money when it comes to this kinda thing.

I am glad your budgie seems to be feeling better, keep an eye out for any reoccurrence of the behaviour. DO you cover the cage at night time? This helps keep them feeling safe and secure and the night light helps prevent night time frights .

Hey guys, im happy to say that Span seems to be okay.
No sign of it happening since yesterday.
Both Span and Baxter are here full of beans causing hovok!
Although Spans feet do seem to still be a little cold since yesterday. I think both of us took a chill to the bones fron the sudden temperature drop.

Yes Pretty boy I cover the cage with a polyester tablecloth, its not heavy as tho stop any air getting to the cage. They are also set in the corner of the room so have two walls on the square cage. They own this place! I just visit before and after work lol

Glad to hear your bird is alright and it was a one-time incident. But as others have pointed out, keep an eye on Span for any further behavioral changes.
Ana's advice was perfect.
