There is so many topic about this but I can't find one about what my Rocky is doing. I have seen him doing this 3 time now since we have him on separate days for like a couple minutes he stretch his neck and open his mouth and tongue out..looks to me like regurgitation as if he will puke but nothing is coming seems like he is just doing the movement is this a normal behavior? He is still a baby and this is my first budgie so I want to make sure this is normal.. I gave him millet the first time I saw him do this and he stopped right away and he is still chirping after and playing...
You have described the normal motion of when budgies are adjusting their crops.
That elongating and what it seems like successive yawnings in a row is crop adjustment.
Regurgitation (as well as vomiting) has a previous pumping/bobbing motion where the bird will bring the food up.
To put your mind at ease, you can watch a few videos on Youtube by typing, "Budgie regurgitating" "Budgie adjusting its crop", so that you will know the difference. You can do the same for yawning.
Oh ok will do .. I learned a new thing today this might be the adjusting of his crop then because there is no pumping head/bobbing just stretching and yawning kind of movement but several time in a row... Thank you this help and I will look at it on you tube
Mexico was doing this the other day, too, and I kind of panicked, thinking there was something wrong. But I know now, like you, that there is a difference between vomiting and crop adjustment. You learn something new every day, huh?
