Default New Budge is trembling

Hello, please can you help?

I finally bit the bullet and collected myself a new Budge yesterday (Saturday). I lost my little man a few years ago and its taken me ages to get another, but here I am.

Ernie is eating and drinking but he seems to be trembling constantly. It's not just when you go up to the cage. He is incredibly tame and does not appear to be nervous at all. He doesn't flap around the cage nervously on approach but likewise, seems alert and interested in what is going on. I can only see this tremble by looking at his tail. It does not look like tail bobbing thankfully. With any other pet, I would run them down to the vet but I'm concerned that would cause tremendous stress at this early stage.

I'm hoping it's just because his in a new environment and the he will settle. I'm obviously not expecting you to diagnose or replace a vet but I would be very grateful if you could offer any advice or experience.

The breeder has been very helpful but is at a loss as to what could be wrong, if anything, other than nerves.

Thanking you in advance

If this behavior was not seen when he was with the breeder than I would assume it is nerves, how old is he? Is he on the same diet as he was when at the breeders? Has he been exposed to anything toxic at your house such as non stick cooking pans, smoke or anything that might upset the respiratory tract? Do you have other animals or children that might be disturbing him? I would cover his cage on 3 sides so he feels more secure and don't try to interact too much with him right now. Do the droppings look normal?

Congratulations on your new little one. I agree with Cody - he probably needs time to settle in.

If his droppings are normal and he's not sleepy or lethargic, then it should pass as he settles into his new home.

Best of luck with your new budgie

Thank you for your replies. He seems fine and full of mischief. His tail does seem to quiver slightly but that just seems to be him. I don't recall this with previous budgies.

What is your budgie's name?
I'm glad he seems to be fine at this point in time.

It is always a good idea to have a new budgie examined by an Avian Vet.

Having your 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.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.
