My happy but panting budgie
Hi I'm Serena, I have two female budgies, Maxi and Molly, who have never been with a male bird before. About a month ago, I noticed that Maxi was panting every, about, 15 seconds and only lasts a couple of seconds each time and finally stops after a while. It's wierd how it only happens between the afternoon and night and I'm pretty sure that it happens just about every night.
We keep them well away from cookware that contains teflon and other non-stick items. We know the toxic foods like avocado etc. And we also put them outside for a while if it's a nice day and we bring them in at night. But she seems to look happy as she eats her seeds, fruit and veggies normally and as well as drinking fresh water normally too.
She also plays with her toys and does her usual crazy flapping thing with her wings occasionally and flying. She also still cleans herself and does her buzzing thing at night and sleeps on one foot. She seems healthy, but the panting is worrying me alot! And I know that she is not overheated either. Do you have any idea why she pants regularly just about every evening like this? And its also not from flying either. Please help!
