My budgies a female who's is about 7-8 months, I got her yesterday but she's hand-tamed by her breeder.
She's sleeping or standing still 80% of the time, even though if she's awake and I'm in another room, she'll call for me. I'm pretty sure she's not ill but then she doesn't have any toys yet... I'm getting some tomorrow, when I get some money.
Is this normal though? I'm really frightened. Is it because she's somewhere new, doesn't have any toys or is she listless (because she's ill?)
Do budgies limit themselves to what they eat?
My budgie tends to eat a lot of the time because she had a big bowl of food in her cage. It looked like she just ate then slept, ate then slept. I was worried in case she gets overweight, so earlier I took out the food and put new, fresh food in. Unluckily, I didn't have the exact same food and I'm scared she won't eat it. I put a reasonable amount in the food-bottle thing this time but will she eat it.
If she doesn't eat it/want it but gets really hungry, will she eat it? I don't want her to starve.
Thanks, I'm really worried.
