"yawning" budgie: sign of affection?

Recommended Posts

Guest Jessehk

Just got a budgie (first one) yesterday.

 

Whenever I am near, he opens his mouth, showing his tongue as if he was yawning. This doesn't happen all the time, but it happens alot. What does this mean?

usually this means that he's a little scared and he's getting prepared to nip at you. when you go near him and he does this, does he stop if you start to back away?

i agree, he is probably trying to scare you off in a little "im warning you if you step any closer...." kind of way. tequila does this when shes grumpy put if i put my hand in the cage she won't bite and she'll step up onto my hand. your bird would probably try to have a go at your hand if you got too close.

The apparent problem has now stopped.

he doesn't open his mouth anymore, he has probalby finally started to settle in.

 

I have a 'follow-up" question though.

 

If Sammy preens and fluffs himself in my presence, is it good, or bad?
