Hello, I have one naughty male budgie who last week started putting out white vomit in front of the mirror and on a game he likes. His demeanor is normal and he is always happy and bouncy. It’s hard to keep him busy in other games where his favorite thing is being in front of the mirror. Is vomiting on a fairly daily basis dangerous for him? Should we let him continue to be in front of the mirror?
White vomit in budgies could indicate regurgitation rather than true vomiting. Regurgitation is a normal behavior in budgies as a way to show affection or communicate with their reflection in a mirror. However, if the regurgitation becomes excessive or if the vomit appears different in color or consistency, it could be a cause for concern.
Regarding the mirror, budgies have a tendency to become fixated on their reflections, which can lead to behavioral issues or a lack of interest in other activities. It’s generally recommended to limit a budgie’s exposure to mirrors to prevent overattachment. Consider providing a variety of toys, perches, and activities to keep your budgie mentally and physically stimulated.
Remember, it’s always best to seek professional advice from a qualified veterinarian who can assess your budgie’s specific situation and provide personalized recommendations.
