My bird snowball has been breathing at a pretty quick rate compared to my other parakeet. The vet said it may be nervous but it breaths like this while it sleeps which I know isn't good.

It may be respiratory problems..

I'm not a pro, but I'd suggest finding a better vet cause if this is continuos fast breathing it's not just being nervous.
Could you get a tape? Cause I'm not completely sure what you mean..
Like, is it audible or what?

I did a quick search and on this one site a person said this may be a sign of Liver/Kidney problems.
I'd do some more research then go to see a better vet.
I'll research a bit too.

Darcy has had very fast breathing ever since I bought him 8 months ago. When normal birds breathing escalates to fast breathing he escalates to open mouthed breathing. He's going to the vet on monday. I let you know what the vet tells me and maybe that will help you
