hi all I hope you can help me. I bought my budgie from a garden centre a week a go , it is supposed to be 11 weeks old . There are certain things that concerns me tho . She seems to have one wing higher than the other and when she was let out only seemed to be able to fly about 10 inches off the floor. She seems very young to me but not having a budgie before I don't know . When I bought him/her she was sat on the bottom of the cage all fluffed up and looked like a baby chick . The others all looked like budgies lol on the perches and chirping away . I felt sorry for this one and took her home .
I can stroke him/her also steps up . Feeds well but I don't see any drinking and Loves her millet . She also fluffs up and shakes a lot and breathes heavy. Am I worrying for nothing being new to this .. Appreciate any help thanks x

Welcome to the forums and the ever exciting world of budgie ownership! :)
Do you happen to know if your budgie's wings have been clipped? This may explain your budgie's inability to fly properly.

A couple of photos would really be helpful to better assess the situation. If possible post a full frontal shot of your budgie's face, by doing so we can help you determine the gender and age. Also another photo showing the back of your budgie, so we can properly see the wings and the tail feathers.

The link below has the detailed info on how to post pictures.

I'm moving your thread to "Your Budgie's Health" section of Talk Budgies.
