Default New budgie replaced me?

I planned on not introducing my budgies together until the new one was tamed but I decided to put their cages together while I was cleaning one day and man am I really regretting that! Now every morning if they're not together my original budgie will begin screaming for the other and start a whole screamfest. To save myself some sleep I caved and let them stay beside eachother a couple days and didn't really have a problem until I noticed my original budgie didn't want to get on my finger for millet anymore and was completely focused on the other bird. Same thing with the new guy. Instead of taking the millet like usual he just hops around focused on the other. So I decided to separate them once again and try to start over. Am I doing the right thing? I still have the problem of them setting eachother off in the morning. They're only a room apart so now I'm wondering if I should keep the new guy I'm my bathroom with the door open and take him in the living room with me during the day.

Welcome to Talk Budgies!

First, I need to point out that with birds, it is VERY important to quarantine new additions (any time you have an existing bird or birds). The links below will explain to you what quarantine in the home is, and how to do it. Please read .

https://www.talkbudgies.com/your-bud...important.html
https://www.talkbudgies.com/new-budg...necessary.html

In fact, please read over the links in our “List of Stickies” which can be found in the Site Information section, or the General Budgie Talk section. You’ll find answers to many common questions, as well as important information on keeping budgies. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for in our resources, then we’re here to help.

I already quarantined him for 40 days at that point.

Hi Madison, there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in your case, as far as leaving them separate or not. Even if they were always kept separate, eventually they’d be calling to each other. Budgies are noisy little things! When they’re happy and healthy, they are a very vocal species!

What I have always done to keep birds quieter in the morning, is to cover the cage at night. Keep a nightlight in the room so it is not pitch dark at night. They ideally need to be in a room that doesn’t get real bright with the morning sunlight. Like a room with a darker curtain or shade. I have found this to be very effective with a lot of birds over the years. That way you can control their sleep/wake schedule.

One bird I have is naturally more of an “early bird” than my others. This bird was previously adjusted to my mother’s very early morning schedule for years. When I took him to my house to live; initially, he would wake up at that time regardless. After some time, using the night cover and darkened room consistently, he finally adjusted to my schedule.

I hope that helps..
