I'm a newbie here with a new budgie
I've had Tweety for about 4 months now, and she first regurgitated on my hand about 3 days ago. I know it wasn't vomiting because there was no violent head shaking; just some head bobbing and she just "placed" the contents on my thumb. The first time she did that it was clear liquid (a small amount..maybe about just enough to cover a baby's fingernail? lol) and 1 seed that was not digested. Today she regurgitated 2 times on my hand, but this time it was clear liquid with no seeds at all.
So my question is, what are the contents of regurgitation actually supposed to look like?
Is it normal for there to be NO seeds and just liquid?
I am no expert and the rest of the group will be able to weigh in much better than me but it seems as if she is courting you. I am not sure if there should be any particular thing in the regurgitated matter but when my parrotlet would do it to me it was usually chewed up seeds.
I suggest a vet visit to do a gram stain from the birds crop, especially since there are repeated episodes of vomiting. I recently lost a budgie to avian gastric disease (yeast) and this is how it begins. It would also help if you do some research on the potential problem. 01 Avian Gastric Yeast (AGY) - VeterinaryPartner.com - a VIN company! I hope for your sake and the birds sake it is not AGY. The sooner treatment is begun the better chance of winning.
Doesn't sound like vomiting to me, as Audrey said above could be she was courting you, was the budgie playing with you right before she regurgitated. I used to have a budgie that had a thing for fingers, he would play with my sisters fingers and would at times regurgitate seed or liquid.
Just to be safe I'd recommend a vet visit, that's what we did but it wasn't anything serious, lets just say the budgie was being a randy ****** if you know what I mean lol
