Question Mexico Keeps Yawning

Hi everybudgie, I have a little problem. Mexico just started yawning like crazy! Almost like he has to throw up, or is extremely tired. At first I thought he had a feather or something stuck in his throat, because they are molting right now, which is possible, because as I write this he is chirping happily and has stopped obsessively yawning. But I'm not sure, because I also have been putting them to bed pretty late lately. Is it possible that he's sick too? I haven't noticed any other weird things. He's playing normally. I will have to check again, but I think his poop is fine. I just don't know if he is sick, his throat was clogged, or if he is tired. Oh yeah! He has also been drinking a lot, which I know is not a good thing. Any help and advice would be appreciated!

Thanks,

-Tia

From your description, most likely your Mexico was adjusting his crop.
Did you change your budgies' diet? On a particularly hot day they can drink a bit more water than usual.
If you notice that Mexico is truly ingesting too much water, then it would be best to have him examined by an avian vet specialist.

I hope all goes well with your boy!

Other than adding sprouts to their diet, it is the same. Thank you for the advice, Ana! I will keep an eye on him, and see how he is tomorrow. I also will watch his water intake, I have a sneaky suspicion that he likes the taste of the vitamin drops I have been putting in because of their moult. If I don't put the drops in, he doesn't drink as much.

You're most welcome, Tia!

Now that's a very plausible explanation for the increased intake of water, Mexico must really love the flavour from the vitamins!

*Sigh* I didn't give them vitamin drops today, and Mexico is still drinking a lot of water. Even though it is hot, I do not think he should be drinking that much. He is also "adjusting his crop" a lot. Here comes a trip to the vet... (groan)

Best to catch any problem early Tia, so getting him in to see the Avian Vet right away is definitely the best course of action.

Thanks. I am nervously and impatiently waiting for a cheque to come so I can book an appointment. Until then, all I can do is wait and keep a close eye on him. The cheque is scheduled to arrive soon, so I am crossing my fingers, hoping it will come early.

Tia, I hope it's nothing serious and a trip to the vet clears it all up!

Let us know how things go, and best wishes.

It did sound like crop adjustment to me also, but since he's still doing it a lot and days later, good idea to get him checked. Sending good vibes to Mexico, Tia. Let us know what the vet says.

Thanks for the responses everyone. The TB community is great.

Quick question; should I seperate the boys just in case Mexico does end up to be sick? I would not want Ice catching it too.

Thanks,

-Tia
