Default bird behavior together

HI everyone.

I was wondering if anyone else's budgies open and close their beak's all the time. Crookie and biddy do this a lot if they are on their jungle gym and sometimes in their cage. What do you all think it means?

Thanks!

Raela

It would be helpful if you elaborated a little more on the topic. Do you mean your budgies constantly do open mouth breathing? Are they gasping and look stressed while doing this? Usually they do this when they're scared, the weather is too hot and of course due to respiratory problems.
Could you post a video for us to see? It'd be helpful.

If they do it shortly after eating, they are probably only rearranging their crop so the food goes down easier. Nothing to worry about! Normal yawning or occasional "neck stretching" with open beaks are perfectly fine too.
However, as sunnydyazz mentioned, it would be helpful if you had a video, because sometimes too much of this indicates a breathing problem and should be looked at right away. I hope this helps!

Hi Everyone!

Thanks so much for the responses. I will post a video of it tomorrow. They do not look stressed they are usually really close to each other almost sticking their tongues out. I think they are just having fun together. They open their mouths and wiggle their tongues a little. Sometimes its after eating but mostly when they are on the jungle gym.

I will post a video ASAP!

Thanks a bunch!

Raela
