budgie feels really hot almost every time he eats

Hi, my budgies is about 2 years old. He used to feel hot when he would be eating his millet and would raise his wings. This would only happen when he would be eating a millet, but lately almost every time he eats his seeds he raises his wings as if he is feeling extremely hot. Please help! I feel like it stops my budgie from eating with ease. My other budgie who is 1 1/2 years old eats without any problem.

Budgie hot after eating
by: Graham

This is strange we have a budgie showing the same symptoms, also nearly 2 years old. Every time he eats, he sits with his wings open. He is getting new feathers at the moment, probably doesn't help. Don't really want to take him to the vet, our last budgie was given an injection and died of stress.

but my house is not hot
by: Anonymous

Thank you for your reply. I never keep my budgies outside without shade, and neither is my house too hot. I am always checking the temperature inside the house. If it was hot inside the house then the other budgie would be feeling hot too, but only one of them does. Even with the AC on i see him raising his wings when he is eating. Anyways thank you.

Budgie raises wings when eating
by: Tracie

Dr B can not help, because he can not examine your bird or run any tests. Do you keep your birds outside without shade or inside a very hot house? I think you are confused, because the bird would be hot before and after it eats if it is hot. Something else is bothering this bird and you need to Find an Avian Vet so your bird can get help.

Thanks for writing and trying to get help here. Unfortunately there is just no way to tell you what might be wrong, and you don't need to know what "might" be wrong, you need to know what IS wrong so the proper treatment can be prescribed.

Let us know what you find out.
