Default Finally got a picture, what does this mean?!

If I had to judge completely based off of appearance, it strikes as a really aggressive stance, but it's not. She doesn't scream, or bite, there's times where she bows like this and lets me touch her, other times where she doesn't.

I read that this means they want to be scratched on the head, is that true? Anyone else have any experience with their budgie bowing like this? In case you can't tell by the picture, basically she completely bows down her body until her stomach touches the perch(when I took the picture she raised her self up just a little bit).

It simply means your budgie likes to perch in that manner, there is no underlying meaning, really. Some budgies would just rather perch in a position that is not totally upright.
I currently have a budgie, Mona who also likes to perch more in a hunched like manner, even more so then your budgie and she is a perfectly healthy and a very sweet tempered budgie.

Yours seems to be very sweet too.

Ohh, I call that the "vulture" pose.
One of my budgies likes to sit like that too.
I agree with Aluz -- it doesn't "mean" anything except that is how the budgie is comfortable.

When a show budgie does this it is considered a fault or a lazy bird that does not sit straight and tall. But it can also mean the body has not fully formed and the front end is a little too heavy. Chicks in the nest will drag the chest until the muscles are strong enough to hold them up. Fat chicks are more likely to
pull forward from the weight of the crop. This changes when the body elongates, but some budgies just do not want to sit tall. Blessings, J A
