Default heavy breathing after flight

Hi guys. I have a 12 week old budgie boy. Hes doing great with hand training chattering away eating and drinking. However when he goes for a fly around the room when he settles say on the top of the cage he begins to breath heavily. As if it was like a human with Asthma. His beak only slightly opens but it is tiny sharp breaths. Should I be worried or is this normal for a budgie?

Thank you for any advice or help.

Kind regards
Emma and baby Eric

Perhaps your budgie has not had a lot of flying and he needs practice to be stronger. If this is the case I would not worry. If it is NOT the case then a good vet exam would be in store for this bird.

Hi Emma and to Talk Budgies!

Your baby Eric is only 12 weeks old so he hasn't had much practice in flying yet. Flying takes a lot of energy and he will be building his strength and stamina over time. Ensuring baby Eric receives a healthy diet will be instrumental.
Our Budgies Diet - Cute Little Birdies Aviary

I wouldn't be overly concerned about Eric panting after flying at this point. My budgies sometimes breathe heavily after they fly around too.

You didn't indicate how long you've had your new budgie boy.
Did you have a wellness check for him with an Avian Vet?
It's always a good idea to have an initial check-up so you can establish a good relationship with the vet and there will be a baseline for the vet to refer back to if/when there are ever any medical issues that come up.

These links will help you locate an Avian Vet in your area:

Association of Avian Veterinarians
Planned System Maintenance

International Vets Register
Vets

Bird Vets Near You

To familiarize yourself with the forums, 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 are answered after you've read through all of them.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about baby Eric and hopefully seeing some pictures soon!!

Unless Eric is displaying other symptoms of distress or sickness such as sitting fluffed up, not eating, sleeping more and looking generally sad or having wet runny poop or a green colour to it I tend to agree with FaeryBee he is merely building up his stamina.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you so much for the information, I have only had Eric for 6 weeks, hes doing well with eating and water so I was just unsure of the breathing after flight.
I did before deciding I was going to get a budgie sit and read through alot of the nutrition advice etc which I found very helpful.
Its made me know I can be the best budgie mam that Eric needs. I had budgies when I was a kid but never one of my own until now.

He had a initial check up when I first got him and everything was okay according to the vet.

Again thank you guys for coming on and easing my mind!
I am enjoying reading through posts with great information

Kind Regards,
Emma and Baby Eric

Emma,
Eric was most fortunate to have you adopt him!
We're looking forward to seeing lots more of you and Eric around the forums.
