Change In Behavovior

Recommended Posts

My 8 month old budgy, mell, has been acting strangly latly. Before she was extremely tame (only with me) and she would respond when I talked to her by coming to the front of cage and tweeting. She came out on to my hand every day for a couple of mins and playful nibbled at my hands, but had never bit me badly. Just over a week ago though she started making squawking sounds, not responding to me, biting badly and will not come on to my hand. The only actual change is that it is White out side the window where it snowed but I don't think that will make any difference.

Budgies molt every 3-4 months depending on the conditions and what you may find is that she is starting to go through a molt, this is also a time where they can become tempermental because they are going through hormone changes and turning into an adult budgie so it is like the "teenage" stage. You may want to cover her cage so she can't see the white snow (I doubt that is it too) but you can try and also make sure that she is covered for the night time at least 10-12 hours and when they go through this stage you can actually increase it to 14 hours for a week and then decrease again.

Thanks. Was afraid I'd done something or there was something wrong with her. I didn't realise they molted so often. Put my mind at rest a bit. :)
