My budgie's tail has bobbed every since I got her at 3 months old. She is now 9 months old and still does it. She act fine, eats and drink good, play and sing all the time. Is there anything wrong with her???

I'm worried now

My budgie Perry, (female blue) does this exact same thing, i'm worried now!

Does this advice mean my budgie can't balance properly?

Editor's note: If you want people to see and answer, you need to post a question, not an answer here to another question, at Parrot Questions and "yes" if your bird constantly bobs it's tail there is something wrong.

Dr B can not tell you without an examination. Please Find an Avian Vet for your bird. If the bird does this constantly, then it is probably trying to keep it's balance and that does mean something is wrong. What is wrong can only be determined by an in person visit with an avian vet.

Do not take the bird to a dog/cat vet that doesn't have experience with small birds. Birds often die in the hands of vet assistants and vets that don't have small bird experience and training.
