I bought this female budgie from an owner who did not want it anymore. She does not have any rings on her head and looks matured. It's been three days, she can perch on my finger, eat from my hands, but when I let back in the cage she just goes back to napping. Windows are slightly open and my room isn't even that dark and I'm sure she has some sleep at night. Her poop is green if y'all are wondering, so Idk why she's sleeping so much.
Is she currently molting? If she is, her fatigue may be normal due to molting and she may also be a little fluffy. My birds will also get nappy right after a meal and take brief naps during the day (since they need not work to pay rent), but if your bird is sleeping constantly and very fluffy, there may be something wrong with her.

She's only fluffed up when sleeping but not always, and her eyes will be open then like blink slowly like she's sleeping. I also noticed when I perched her, her feet were like really warm, is that normal? I'm new to keeping budgies btw
Hello and welcome, what was the reason the person who sold you the budgie gave for not wanting to keep ? is it possible for you post a clos up picture of the bird and it's droppings for us to see?
It is usual for a budgie coming into a new home to have watery droppings, the poop normally should be of a solid consistency made up of two parts. A darker bigger portion and a white smaller portion.
The droppings usually settle after a day or so, what are you feeding the budgie may I ask? a varied diet is best.
there are many reasons a bird will fluff up, sickness, cold, sleepy.
The best advice I will offer is make an appointment with an Avian vet to have a wellness check up, get the feet, beak, worming, and weight whilst there. Pease come back often we love seeing pictures of your birds too.
It would be best to have your budgie examined by an Avian Vet.
Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma. This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment. This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
Having your new budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.
I think he couldn't take care of them anymore so he have everything away including cage and food. He actually sold me two which I gave to my cousin, they were both females and man did they bite hard at first. I got them to trust me, but I'm feeding them parakeet seeds for now. I will be feeding them fruits and veggies soon. I think after giving away my other budgie, it was lonely so it's just sleeping most of the time?
