Default Slow Blinking and Fluffy Head

I'm relatively still quite new to budgie ownership (at least since i've understood about how to care for them).. When I had Stitches he would do this too and now Mazi does it. I'll look at Mazi and he/she will slowly blink both eyes closed and keep them closed for a second or two and then look back at me when theyre open again. Sometimes I noticed a head tilt afterwards too. What does that mean? is it content, "leave me alone", a sort of game they play or what??

Also, sometimes I notice just the head feathers fluffed up (not the feathers going down the neck or back or anything else, and they're usually not completely up. I can only really best describe it as a sort of half fluff of the head feathers but it's also not just like fluffing the feathers they'll stay up for a while and I'm really curious as to what's trying to be communicated. I'll try to get pictures next time it happens but I won't be able to for a few days as im at my dads house for wifi

It sounds like your budgies are happy and content to me My flock will often do this when they are getting ready to take a nap, or when they are listening to me as I talk to them

That's what I thought mainly because of the blinking but what makes me question it is that I had Mazi for less than a day when I first saw her do it. However, she was also chirping away the very first morning that i had her, which would be today. Could it be that she's just a socialized bird and used to being near people? If that was the case, shouldn't she be more tame? Her wings aren't clipped. She tried to move away from me (by flying and climbing to the corner of the cage farthest from where my hand had been when i grabbed the food dish) even when I was just blowing the hulls out of her food.

I notice that my gang will blink more when they are really concentrating on something, specifically when they are listening to me talk, etc

As long as you see no other reason to worry from the sound of it your little ones are very happy little budgies!
