Jumpy budgie...

We have a budgie called susan, she isnt tame as her previous owner didnt let her out because of her breathing problems,we dont know her exact age but the previous owner said she was about 3 and we have had her for a year now. She did have a freind called peter but he died about 3-4 months ago. Recently susan has been jumpy and nervous, she runs sideways along the same pirch all day and twitches her wings, when someone goes near her she sqwauks and plaps her wings. She eats and drinks but you rarley see her do it. Usually she will fly around her cage looking for treats and loves to eat, when she isnt doing this she is sleeping. I am starting to get worried, does anyone know whats going on or had any experience with it?

she may be grieving her friends passing and being alone might make her jumpy in general. Also since she doesn't have a friend she may be bored.

I agree with Kendalle but also is the twitching of the wings more of a kind of flap? If it is it's just a way of excercising their wings. When mine do it a lot I let them out to fly about my room. They really enjoy it ^^

Its more like a twitch at the top of her wings, its constant, she never stops doing it, its like shes cold or scared

She is more than likely scared. Has anything happened in the house to freak her out? They will remember it for a long time and continue to freak for no reason. A thunderstorm or a dropped book is all thats needed. Getting her another friend since she isn't tame would probably calm her down. Also, if you let an un-tame budgie flap around a room it will freak them out more than exercise them, catching them would be stressful and would defeat the purpose almost.
