Why is my budgie sitting like that.

Hello guys.
I had these budgies for 12 days now.
In the past 4 days my female budgie started sitting hunched over as you see in the picture. I dont know if she is just looking at me. Or something on the floor. Or if something is wrong.
Did any of you experience that

I would say this stand does not show on sickness, but I do not believe she is in this position for a long time.

She sits like that for an hour or so.

Re: Why is my budgie sitting like that.

I'd recommend you bring her to an avian vet (not a regular vet). It might be a variation of stargazing if she's in that position for an extended period of time.

If you don't have an avian vet already, here's a search function to find a potential one near you: https://www.aav.org/search/custom.asp?id=1803

Re: Why is my budgie sitting like that.

I've seen my male sit like that only occasionally, and not for an extended time. Otherwise he shows no signs of illness. At first it concerned me, but then he was back playing with toys. Haven't seen him do it in several days. Could be just a position to aid digestion.

Re: Why is my budgie sitting like that.

I can't see the picture. But I can tell you my Budgies are never hunched over, ever.
They do sit puffed up while napping from time to time.
