How long ago did you get her? If you just got her, she is just settling in. When I got Ace, he was very quiet and wanted no interaction. If she stays like this you should take her to the vet.

Default Bluey is so quiet please help

Hi everyone I recently purchased Bluey my new hen bird as unfortunately I lost my last one due to getting egg bound.on her arrival she was very quiet when putting her into her new home she would just sit in one place just get up to eat and drink water and most of the time she would just sleep alot.i recently noticed she had alot of poo stuck underneath her so I had no choice but to give her a bath myself with Luke warm water and a damp cloth but soon after she just wanted to cuddle up to anything soft and warm and now she has gone into the breeding box with the other baby chick's.she is not harming them and mother hen has also not really pushed her out.think she is scared and feels safe there or I'm just paranoid please can you help I'm concerned for her thanks in advance

New bird's often act the way you describe. It sounds as if you did not quarantine her from your other bird's for the recommended 4-6 weeks in case she is sick. I believe you should remove her from the nest box and keep her in a separate cage from the nesting hen and babies. If she has dirty vent problems and continues to act lethargic or puffed up you need to get her to an avian vet for diagnosis and treatment which may need to be extended to your other bird's. Hopefully some of our more experienced folk's can give you additional insight. I am going to delete your other thread as it has the same question you have posed here.

I've merged two of your threads into one and Randy deleted another on the same topic.

Please do not start threads addressing the same topic in multiple forums. This is much too confusing for other members.

I agree with Randy.
Your new budgie should be in quarantine for 4-6 weeks and if she is quiet and lethargic, you should take her to an Avian Vet to ensure she is not ill.
Locate an Avian Vet

Additionally, anytime you breed budgies, each individual breeding pair should be in an separate cage with a nest box away from all your other adult budgies.
Colony breeding is not recommended.

I'm very sorry for your loss of Bluey.

Fly high and soar free little Bluey; rest peacefully sweet girl.

If you decide to get another budgie in the future, please be sure to quarantine it for a minimum of 45 days.

Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room where your current bird(s) are housed.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.

Again, you have my sympathy for your loss of Bluey.

Best wishes.

Thank you for the kind gestures she was a really cute little bird to be honest think she had been neglected in the past by the breeder I bought her off.i thought I could have given her a happy home.all my other budgies are very healthy indeed and to be honest I spoil them big cage loads of toys and treats and to be honest the cage is always open so they are not kept indoors all.the time but anyhow think I'm going to concentrate on the new chick's and make sure they are all good and get through thanks again saj
