Hi everyone, what does it mean when your budgie is clicking their beak when not eating any seed or anything? Do they have some kind of beak infection or something?? I thought maybe it was too long but I have a mineral block thing so maybe not.
Do you mean the motion they do with the beaks where it seems they are chewing something when in fact they are not?
If so then that is called beak grinding and there's no reason for concern, quite the contrary, when budgies grind their beaks it means they are perfectly content and happy. They usually beak grind when getting ready to sleep for the night or when they are about to nap. I love those little little noises they make.
To be sure if that is really what your budgie is doing you can go to Youtube and type "beak grinding budgie".
