HELLO MY BUDGEY CARADOG IS ABOUT 5 YRS OLD AND IS A MALE BUDGEY. USUALLY HE IS QUITE A NERVOUS BUDGEY BUT LATELY HE HAS BEEN MORE TIMID AND WE HAVE NOTICED THAT HIS CHEST HAS PUFFED OUT. IT HAS BEEN THIS WAY FOR A FEW DAYS AND WE ARE NOT SURE WHETHER TO TAKE HIM TO THE VETS? PLEASE CAN YOU ADVISE ME AS TO WHAT IT COULD BE AND WHETHER THE VET IS NEEDED?

That's too bad your budgie is acting different. I used to have budgies, but don't have them anymore. If he's been this way for more than a couple of days, maybe you should take him to the vet. I put a few links here for budgie discussion groups (for sick budgies.) I thought maybe you could get a clue from what they said to give you an idea of what's maybe going on. There's lots of reasons for why your poor bird isn't feeling well. Hope it helps!
