Yes, it can @ira. I find the same thing. You can see the over-night piles, by the fact that they are piles rather than random droppings, and I have noticed that when the weather is damp, rainy, humid, the wetness is much more obvious. I do remember Barrie saying this was perfectly normal also.
We are not Vets, Avian or otherwise. If you have any serious doubts about your budgies' health an appointment with an Avian vet should always be your first point of call.
Oh yes that is ringing a bell now. I've just had to catch my two twice a day for a week to give baytril by syringe in the beak. That was a steep learning curve! You've doing very well from not having any budgies two weeks ago. Have you had any bird experience before? I think you said not. I didn't before Merry and pippin who I've had four months now. I couldn't possibly manage taking on a flock as you have. Can't wait to see more photos of the bedding pair and sweet little chicks.

Brand New Budgie
Lol as soon as I pry the computer from my 12 year old ill post some as I want help trying to sex them, mom and dad are still to skittish to handle they flap and yell when I clean the cage, poor babies!! I think the pet shop scarred them so I hope they can at least get comfortable with me in the cage, though I'd love to hand tame them it might be impossible. At least I hope we can co-exist! From what I've seen you are doing a great job!
