Budgie sneeze fit?
My female budgie Green is doing this for a week. Please help.

She does not look like she is sneezing to me, her nares look clear in the video, it looks more as if it is coming from the throat like there is something stuck, and it does not look like a normal regurgitation that you see when birds feed one another. Have you seen anything come out of her mouth when she is doing this? Do you have an avian vet you can take her to?

Nothing comes out of her mouth when she does this. There is no avian vet in my town but there is a veterinary hospital for animals. She does this several times a day but she seems normal all the other times. She's eating and playing well.

Hi! :welcome: to Talk Budgies

I agree with Cody - it doesn't look like a sneeze but I do think it is something that should be checked out by a veterinarian who has experience in dealing with small birds. I'd be sure to take the video in with you when you take your female into the vet, just in case she doesn't exhibit the behavior when she's in the clinic for her exam.

Hi there and :welcome: to the forums!

I agree with the above. It's always best to have your little one seen by an avian vet to rule out possibility of illness. Additionally, it's generally good practice to have them seen for a "well-bird" exam, like humans have yearly physical exams.

Your bird is adorable and I look forward to seeing more of her!

Meanwhile, be sure to read through the forums' many budgie articles and "stickies" provided above to ensure you're up to date on the best of budgie care practices. If you have any questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

Hope to see you around! :wave:

Hi everyone. Sorry for the late reply.

My budgie was actually vomitting while doing that. I noticed that the following days. She threw up undigested food. I consulted a vet and showed him the video. He said that it must be stomach infection and bringing the bird is not necessary. He prescribed antibiotics. But before giving antibiotics he told me to try cumin seed water for a few days.

(Cumin seed water: Take half to one teaspoon of cumin seeds and put it in half to one glass of water and then boil the water. The cumin seed essence will mix with water and the water turns yellow. Then filter and serve.)

I gave her the water she really liked it. I thought of diluting it if she refused. But she drank it well. I switched to normal water only during the night. I did this for atleast five days. The vomitting frequency gradually reduced and gone completely. Now she's alright. She is not vomitting anymore. Back to normal.

Thank you all for your support and response. I'll update if necessary.
