Exclamation my budgie is acting strange

hi all,
this is my first post so i dont really know how it works but i bought my second budgie scout about 3 months ago and after about a week of being home with us he started opening and closing his beak with out making sounds
he aslo does not have a bobbing tail and his chest is not moving violently
this is really strange as at first he was chirping and excited.

thanks

It could be either adjusting their crop or yawning possibly.. My budgies to both.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

You don't indicate how frequently this behavior is occurring.
Is this a constant, ongoing matter where he makes the movement and then does it again a few seconds later?
Does the behavior occur right after he eats or throughout the day?

If the behavior only happens one or twice a day, then there is no cause for alarm. If it is a frequent, ongoing motion - then you budgie may have a crop infection and should be seen 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.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

Having your 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.

Please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

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.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

Hi there and to the forums!

Is he just moving his beak or his whole neck, like he's yawning? Either way, if he does it constantly, I agree that there could be an underlying infection and it's best to take him into the vet for a checkup.

FaeryBee has given some great advice and resources. Be sure to read through the links provided as they will help you to stay updated on the very best of budgie practices! If you have any questions afterwards, be sure to ask as we'd love to help

Cheers!

You need to take your budgie to an Avian Vet right away for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
The vet will determine if the budgie has an infection and what type (viral, bacterial or fungal) and prescribe the correct medication.

Please be sure to update us regarding your budgie's condition after the Avian Vet appointment.

I'm wishing your little one a full and speedy recovery.
