Hi all

I have 2 budgies - Bruce (female, approx 10 years old - not sure was given to us) and Snowball (male, 1 year old)

We do not handle them or let them out of their cage as Bruce was unused to handling when we got her, we later got Snowball to be her companion and do not handle him either.

 

The issue is Bruce has taken to sitting on the floor of the cage. Not all of the time, some days more and some days less. This has been going on for over a month now.,

I did take her to the local vet, but they are not avian vets, no idea why she is doing this. Nearest avian vet is 4hours away AFAIK.

 

She seems fairly healthy. Any idea whats up?

 

Cheers :)

Thanks for the answer Taz I didn't think of it like that. I laid some cloth down in the spot she has been sitting (for it to be comfy for her) and also moved the cage to a different spot and since then I have not seen her sitting on the floor of the cage!
