personality change in budgie

by jenni

i have a 1 year old budgie who normally cannot get enough of me and is usually talking up a storm, he was just figuring out how to dive bomb my head from behind.

in the last week he has become very withdrawn, very jumpy and does not seem to be able to fly like he did. it is almost as if his vision is different. as far as i know he has not flown into any walls or fans. he is not sitting on the bottom of his cage,he is preening himself, he is eating normally, and he only sometimes talks to himself.

i have been doing a project that required me to not play with him for a week, when this started, during this time i put him what im afraid is too close to a speaker and he got stressed from my loud music.

im just wondering if he could just be mad at me, sick or injured.

This sounds like your bird may have an internal issue, that can only be diagnosed by an avian vet.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
