My budgie is opening and closing her beak a lot.
My budgie has begun opening and closing her beak sort of quickly, kind of like she is talking. I wouldn't think much of it but she is doing it quite a bit.
She looks healthy, eats well, drinks, moves about her cage with no issues.
It started after her cage mate died 2 weeks ago (she was 12 yrs old) my budgie that remains is about 5 or 6 years old.
Because it has continued I am starting to become concerned. I called an avian vet for advice but they would only tell me to come in for an exam ($80.00 plus testing)
If I had a better idea of what it is, or if it is potentially life threatening I will take her to a vet.
But I do not want to pay $80.00 plus testing for them to tell me she is lonely. I have a cockatiel to keep her company (in diff cage) but it may not be enough.
Any thoughts you could share with me would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance
