Just a little while ago i noticed Cookie vomitting on the play gym. :( She would bob her head to bring up seeds and then shake her head and splatter them everywhere. There were a lot of seeds all over the play gym so she must have brought up a fair amount. :(

Because she brought up whole seeds rather than slime, and hasn't lost weight, had abnormal poos or any other symptoms i think she might have just eaten something bad. She's sitting on a chair in the kitchen with her eyes closed, she seems really tired. Poor Bailee won't leave her side and looks very concerned. He kepts doing heart wings and touching her head.

I'll keep you posted. Hopefully she'll be alright soon.

oh no :( I hope Cookie will feel better soon. My friend said her budgie was throwing up whole sticky seeds the other day and being fluffed up. She says he seems to be ok now though. Keep us updated

Chiclet was the EXACT same way yesturday, except it was pellets instead of seeds. I turned the heat up and covered her cage. She didn't make any sounds yesturday and looked half dead. She just sat on the same perch all day. I really thought she wouldn't make it through the night.

This morning she was calling for us and climbing and playing. I'm not sure what was wrong though. She still looks a lil tired but otherwise ok.

Thanks Laura for your help yesturday!

She seems back to normal today. I'm just waiting to see that her poos go back to normal now that she's eaten, but i'm sure they will. They went a bit off last night but she would've been stressed and had no food in her system. I tried to separate her for the night but you should've seen the fit that Bailee threw. :eek: Talk about separation anxiety.

You know me, i'm pretty paranoid when it comes to my birds. Sometimes i think they'll just drop off their perch for no reason at all. I will most definitely be keeping a very very close eye on her and everyone to watch for more vomitting.

Well she just scoffed a bunch of sunflower seeds, i have a small container of them near the cage and they love being fed one at a time from my hands. Her and Bailee were pushing and shoving to get to the front first. :lol:

Thats great Bea I am glad to hear she is feeling better, your right she probably just ate something that didn't agree with her just like us humans we can get sick and bounce right back quickly :D

I hear you on the seperation anxiety although none of them bother with him if Ollie is on my shoulder and I take him out of there sight you should hear them calling each other holy cow my poor ear.
