Default Budgie clicking when breathing

Hello everyone,I just got a 2 month old blue budgie about 3 days ago and currently everytime he breathes it seems to be accompanied with a slight clicking sound.I can't get a checkup with a vet as my local vet is currently closed.Any ideas of what it is? And how to treat it

There are any number of things that could be involved but without a vet assessing it you cannot be sure what the cause is. Is there any sneezing or discharge from the nares? All the vets in my area are open but with a different protocol than usual, only the patient can enter the facility, the client waits in the car while the patient is seen inside. Where we are you located?

Clicking while breathing is usually a sign of air sac mites. However, like Star already mentioned, it could be another issue altogether and you need to see an avian vet for a full diagnosis and treatment.

Hi there and to the forums!

I definitely agree with the above. You should have your budgie seen by a qualified avian vet; if it is air sac mites or some other infection, it's important to treat it before it gets worse as for birds especially the prognosis for advanced respiratory illnesses is often very severe.

Please let us know how your little one is doing once you've gotten them to a vet!

Meanwhile, it's great to have you here and you've come to a great place to learn even more about the best practices for budgie care! Please be sure to have a look at the resources provided to make sure you're up to date on everything. If you have any questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

Hope to see you around

I got my budgie 6 weeks ago and he had the same problem. I think it may have been because of stress or something, because a few days later he stopped and started bonding with me

Luckily for you and your bird, it wasn't anything more serious. Please remember that anything that seems abnormal should always still be checked out by an avian vet just to be sure. It can always be something more serious that needs to be treated.
