Strange budgie behaviour

Hi there
We got a female budgie a week ago from a bad conditioned place. She’s been there for about four years. She’s a little cage bound. We let her out for the first time yesterday and she was super calm the whole time. She accepts a millet spray from my hands. She was on an almost all - seed diet before and we’re transitioning her to more veggies and pellet and seeds so a very various diet. We also have a green cheek conure who lost his friend and is very attached to me. She has a problem with her eye and we’re going to see the vet with that next week but I just wanted to ask why she does this in the video. She scratches her eye so could it be scratching her back or neck? Thanks for the answer.

Re: Strange budgie behaviour

My budgie Valentino does exaclty this when I need to take him to the vet, and I have to put him in his much smaller travel cage. Val does it because he wants to get out

Hmm that's interesting. When I open the cage door she doesn't come out though because she's still cage bound and afraid. So this behaviour is normal?

Re: Strange budgie behaviour

I would say so, yes. Val is not hand tame either, and does not automatically hop out of the travel cage when I open the door for him. Interestingly, he is perfectly happy to sit in his much bigger every-day cage, either with the door closed or wide open, singing all day long and never exhibits that kind of behaviour. But the moment I pop him in his travel cage he starts turning somersaults and wants OUT!!!

Yay thank you. I guess I overreacted. By the way Laura, I saw your post about losing your feathered friend. I’m so sorry for your loss. I can feel you my other conure got lost like that too. I hope you’ll find your friend.
