    10 year old budgie makes a sound everytime she jumps onto a branch/side of the cage.

    She doesn't seem to be in pain, every time she sees me eating something she clings onto the side of the cage and flaps her wings begging for a slice of toast. It's like a low pitch chirp, is it due to her age? Thanks in advance.

    Has she just started this behavior, or has she been doing it for awhile. Is she your only budgie, or do you have others. Has she ever laid eggs? Do you have a strong bond with her. Has she ever displayed hormonal or mating behavior? Has she ever had a mate or hatched babies? Does she eat seeds only, pellets only, or a mix of both.

    Have you taken her for a welless exam recently? Since she is ten years old, I would consider taking her to an Avian vet for the exam, because, being 10 years old, they can develop tumors, and other diseases.

    It could be her hormones have kicked in, because fall is the time of year when budgies mate, lay eggs and hatch babies.
