Red face Phoenix and Sunburst

We have had phoenix 4 days now, and He seemed lonely. We pet him and talked to him and he is got step up pretty well. But he would just stare at the mirror all day and talk to it. Every once in awhile he would get upset because it wouldn't talk back. Hubby brought home Sunburst. A pretty little (we hope) female. She seems to be a bit older than him, her forehead lines have already receded a bit, but she is a lot smaller. They have gotten a long together fantastic! They sit cuddled up together and chirp back and forth. And he has left the mirror alone since being introduced. So happy! I know it will be harder to tame them both and get them doing tricks and such, but I am willing to put in more effort with them both to get a bond going, as long as they aren't lonely by themselves.

Our cagge is 16"L x 12" wide X 22" tall. Is that big enough for two?

Your budgies are very cute, and I hope that they make good company for each other. Sunburst (the yellow and green budgie) is indeed a female.

Please keep an extra close watch on their health since quarantine was not employed.

Good luck!

Hi, Maribeth

Congratulations on your new little female. Sunburst is a pretty name for her.

Is there a reason why you didn't quarantine her?
https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...important.html

You asked about your cage size indicating it is 16x12x22.
which is 4,224 cubic inches. The minimum recommended size cage for two budgies is 30x18x18 which is
9720 cubic inches (more than twice as large as the cage you have currently). The bigger the cage you can get for your budgies, the better off they will be.

This cage is inexpensive and meets the minimum size requirement for two budgies:
Petco Designer White Finch Flight Cage - Finch Flight Bird Cage from petco.com

If you have the space and the funds, I would recommend something like this one:
Amazon.com : Prevue Pet Products Wrought Iron Flight Cage with Stand F040 Black Bird Cage, 31-Inch by 20-1/2-Inch by 53-Inch : Birdcages : Pet Supplies Amazon.com : Prevue Pet Products Wrought Iron Flight Cage with Stand F040 Black Bird Cage, 31-Inch by 20-1/2-Inch by 53-Inch : Birdcages : Pet Supplies

I have five of the F040 cages myself and have no more than two birds in any of them because I like my birds to have lots of room even though they have extensive out-of-cage time every day.

We didn't quarantine because they came from the same store and were housed together prior to purchase, bought only 4 days apart.

This is what we are looking at getting?

It has to be a hanging cage to keep it away from our 11 month old daughter.

Default Phoenix and Sunburst.

SorryI think that cage is well too small for one budgie let alone two.My cage is 37 inches wide for two budgies. But that is a Prevue x large cage. But i think you should get a bigger cage right away. They will hardly be able to move about in that. I am sorry if i sound harsh. I dont mean to be. I am just thinking of the little budgies stuck in such a small cage. I feel really sorry for them.

Thanks! We think they are pretty too. Not giving them a nest because we don't want babies, but I bet they would make cute ones!

Don't worry we ARE working on getting a bigger cage. The Petco people said this cage was perfectly fine for two and we listened. Like I said we just have to find one sturdy enough to be hung away from the ground. It helps that right now they both have clipped wings so flying isn't an issue. They hop around and climb all over the cage and I have toys hung all over that are kind of far from perches so they have to climb to get to.

Maribeth --

I'm SO glad Phoenix and Sunburst are doing well together.
I had a similar situation when I bought Sunny and ended up going back to get Shelby a few days later
(no quarantine for them under those circumstances either )

The cage you are considering is 10,584 cubic inches
Product Dimensions: 18 x 14 x 42 inches ; 11 pounds

I would recommend you consider this one instead:
https://www.wayfair.com/Prevue-Hendry...2-PVP1192.html

Dimensions:
Overall: 36" H x 22" W x 22" D
Cage Bar Spacing: 1/2 Inch
Overall Product Weight: 11lbs
Cubic Inches 17,424
Price through Wayfair.com $74.62 with Free Shipping and they are currently in stock.

This cage is both longer and wider which is better for your budgies, not as tall as the cage you were considering (which will make it easier to hang) weighs the same as the one you were considering only costs $5.00 more and you'll still get Free Shipping through Wayfair.

I believe you'll like the seed-catcher on the Clean-Life Cage as well. I have a clean-life cage I use as Peachy's "secondary" cage and it's quite nice.
