Wednesday morning I noticed that our little budgie, Joey, was not doing very well. I know the signs. I’ve seen them before. We have had many budgies over the years. Joey is just over eight years old so he is getting up there. He was listless, puffed up, and resting on one leg. It almost looked like he had had a stroke. I didn’t think he would be with us much longer. Much to my surprise, he perked up a bit in the afternoon. Today I would say that he is back to normal. I have never experienced this with one of our birds before (bouncing back like that). Thank goodness he seems to be okay now. What a trooper! This photo was taken the day before he got sick.
