I just bought my Parakeet yesterday and it is breathing fast. Why? Is it scared?

It won't do anything but sit on the cage and I see it's chest moving fast.


A lot of the time when you first get a new pet bird, they are going to be very nervous. Make sure you let her adjust for a few days. A fast moving chest just means that the parakeet is feeling very frightened. Wait a few days before you start to stick your hand in her cage.
