    Hi everyone

    I was wondering if my budgies were sick its a weird long short story!

    Jeff:His tail is bobbing and his poo is still fine his eating great and this has been going on for about 2 weeks!

    Green:Her tail is bobbing poo is a little messy but not really watery she is eating fine and still has one leg up while sleeping!

    ARE THEY MIXED UP OR ARE THEY SICK OR AM I GOING CRAZY!!!!!

    I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING IT'S TOOOOOO CONFUSING!!!!!!!

    Re: Sick or mixed?

    I have just confirmed that both budgies still sleep one leg up!

    I stayed with them for a while and it's night right now so it's time for them to go to sleep and eventaully they both put up one leg!
    and then i stayed fore a while again and it seems to me that they are not unbalanced or anything!

    SOOO HAPPY!!!

    I'm glad that they are not sick!

    but does anyone know anything about this CRAZINESS??????

    As far as I know, sleeping while standing on one leg is normal...and maybe the tail 'bobbing' is more to do with the bird's movements than being sick..when Lawrence sings or eats or head bobs, his tail moves too...for balance, I'm thinking.

    Watery poop should be kept an eye on...but if they've had fruit/veg/anything moister than their usual seed or pellets, moister poops are normal.

    they don't really eat any fruits or veggies even though i give them a plant with seeds to eat(not dangerous or poisonous have fed to previous healthy budgies but....they flew away.... )
    and i'm not sure if they are drinking more water.....i've realised that my budgies crops are pretty empty and they don't preen as much.....
