    Smile Budgie Behaviour

    I am only on day two of being budgified .... lol. So I do not know what is 'normal' for a budgie in general, never mind my two who dont follow the rules.

    When I gave the birdies their showers ... which they seem to enjoy (once I stop spritzing....... ) the female was preening herself (after I stopped spritzing) while standing on one leg and with in a few minutes of stopping preening she started this 'fake regurgitation' action. Mouth/beak open and head moving forward, little tongue sticking out oh so much, like when one pretends to be throwing up. Nothing came up, no sounds ... and she is still eating and drinking and active and playing. So what the devil was that? The male didnt do it, just her.

    Also my budgies get 12 hours of 'sleep' (cage is covered and its quiet) but they still seem to sleep alot during the afternoon. Is this due to moulting, their age, new enviro, bad diet .... they sleep a fair bit (more than I expected) but they are not quiet, moody or sickly acting, just sleeping alot ... play, eat, groom in between. Is this normal?

    thanks all
