Question I think she is vomiting...

My budgie, Pichi, has done this same thing before... She starts making a noise like tsk tsk (only way i can describe it) and she shakes her head from side to side. Seeds then proceed to come out of her mouth almost all over the place. Its not a lot of seeds but still... This has happened 2 times before and people kept telling me it was regurgitation but when I got my second budgie, pollito, it was a different kind of thing... What can I go?


P.S

She looks healthy and her poop is fine. She has been moody,stressed, and cranky because shes been molting/plucking a lot of feathers.

Budgies regurgitate in order to feed their mates or chicks, this is done in a controlled manner, the budgie will bob the head up and down by making the normal regurgitation motion to bring up the seeds and then proceed to feed the mate or object of affection. Regurgitated seeds are clumped together by spit and directed at a specific place.

What you have described from your Pichi really was vomiting. They start by doing the regurgitation motion and then the head goes sideways (to both left and right) and loose seed come shooting out of the beak in an uncontrolled manner. Since this isn't the first time your Pichi has vomited, the best thing to do is to book an appointment with an avian vet, so that she is properly checked, diagnosed and treated.

Moulting is one thing and plucking is another completely different thing. From your description on your other threads, your Pichi is simply moulting.

I hope Pichi feels better soon, good luck with everything.

I agree with Aluz, a trip to the avian vet would be good...
