Default Coughing up Seeds

Hi there guys..

I need to tell that today 1 hour ago, 8:00 PM Tonight, ive noticed my budgie starts coughing up huge amount of seeds.. like he starts throwing up seeds all around his cage after coughing.. and he was doing it too much and after grabbing him for sometimes.. i noticed his poop was lime greeny liquid on my hand, therefore after some minutes, he started another poop but its green watery, i kept him back in the cage and im worried at the moment because this happened suddenly !

Greetings.I'm not sure on this,but it could from stress or a early sign of illnesses.and if it is sick,try to find a bird vet as soon as you can.I know sometimes a bird will regurgitate its food up.and when there stressed they will cower or so forth.but I,'ll let our experienced friends here help you on this to be sure.blessings and I hope your budgie will be ok soon.

Hi there, I'm sorry your budgie isn't feeling well...

Did this happen immediately after you grabbed your budgie?
I'm asking this because if you have somehow grabbed him more firmly and he had a full crop of food, then your firm and stronger hold of him may have triggered this throwing up of seeds.
The "grabbing" of a budgie should only be done in specific cases, such as applying medical treatment or giving a budgie a more thorough health check and to do this, a person must know how to correctly handle and hold a pet bird and to not apply too much pressure while handling.

If after the regurgitation motion, your budgie's head goes left and right and loose seeds shoot out of the beak in all directions, then he is truly vomiting and if this wasn't triggered by your grabbing and he has had more than one vomiting episode, then the best thing to do is to book an appointment with an avian vet specialist.

I'm wishing your budgie a steady and full recovery.

It could be a sign of stress alone or he/she could be sick (remember, budgies hide their symptoms as long as they can) and the stress of being grabbed may stops him/her from hiding it causing the vomiting. Do you check his weight regularly and if so has it dropped or increased recently? I would advise you to talk with your avian vet about it, just in case. I had Melody regurgitating and being sick for months so I am extra careful now.

It is important to have your budgie checked by a vet who is experienced in caring for small birds.
Here is a link which should help you:
Elite Veterninary Service

It will benefit you to establish a good relationship with a vet who can properly diagnose and prescribe treatment for your budgie if/when necessary. Having a baseline for the future is always helpful as well.

It is best not to grab your budgie.
Please use positive reinforcement to train him to step up so that "grabbing" is not necessary in the future.

Please let us know how your little fellow is doing.
I hope he has a full and speedy recovery.

I am sorry for my english because i didnt meant Grabbing him on his whole body (I do know most Budgies/parakeets they dont like getting touched or holded by the hands) so from what i meant is that i let him hop on my finger and took him out of the cage by just letting him standing on my finger, No grabbing.

The way he was acting yesterday at night was very strange..sadly couldnt record it but its like He coughed 2 times a little bit and then the 3rd cough was suddenly Throwing up number of seeds around his cage like an example of firing shotgun bullets in one time..

I also noticed the 2 poops he made was very watery..

I didnt had any idea what was going on with him..so i was thinking to find a vet nearby me asap, but its late since i was busy this weeks and couldnt manage to find time..

Today morning i noticed his poop is back normal, and acting normal again like before but i will try looking up more further because to me its barely strange.

Many Thanks guys for the replies and @ Faery i will try reading them for sure, about the link you gave me .. probably that vet place is 200 or 300 KM far away from me xD, the city im living is https://www.google.com.sa/search?esp...2&rlfi=hd:;si:

I will follow them up asap.

Thank you for the explanation and there is no need to apologize, your English is perfectly understandable. I'm a foreigner too.

It's good to know that you have noticed an improve on your budgie's poops.
The description you have made really makes me believe your budgie has vomited. He may have had a stomach upset which has now been cleared, but it's best to keep a close eye on him. If he has another vomiting fit or you notice a decrease in his energy levels and appetite, then you really need to have your budgie checked by an avian vet or at least a vet who is experienced with pet birds.

Best of luck with everything.
