I just got him 2 days ago.. from a breeder of the budgie society..when Coco's in his cage he act like a dog, or Gerbils? he dose all kind of strange flips on his back.. and climbs all the way up on the top of the cage and falls down.. and keeps runing around back and farward like a dog, and looking at the bottom of his cage, he also like's to squeeze in between his water dish and food and it scratchs he's head why? he's 6 weeks old. I thought he needed a bath he's had one by me but he'll climb into his water dish and wet his self once a day strange. i'm starting to think i have a dog instead of a bird :(

Budgie acting strange

Did the breeder take him to an avian vet to get you a health certificate before you purchased him? He needs to see a vet, especially if you have other birds in the house.
