Post Making progress! All three of my budgies are eating from my hand now!

I'm particularly excited about my newest addition. She's a female that I bought from Petland 2 days ago. I haven't named her yet, but she's the double factor dominant pied (the white one). My two males were previously owned by my sisters who bought them several months ago at Petsmart. They can already step up onto my finger and have been eating from my hand for a while now.

I bought my female in hopes that she'd pair with my opaline named Glacier (the sky blue one). He doesn't seem to like her though. In fact, the other male doesn't really like her either.

She seems to be isolating herself from the other 2, but at the same time she's also more adventurous than they are. That's probably due to her previous home at Petland. The budgie enclosure there was FULL of toys and things for the birds to chew on.

So far my plan is to only feed my budgies from my hand. They won't have access to the food dish until I put them back in the cage at night. I've kept them outside the cage so they can explore and get use to the new environment.

Since it won't let me upload the video, here's the link.

Hi Chelsie!

It sounds like you didn't quarantine your new bird from your two boys, right?

Since it seems they've already met, I still would seperate them for a while and let your new girl settle into her new home.

Adventurous or not, it's always best to allow a new bird to acclimate herself into a new environment, usually achieved through quarantine.

Quarantine is used to prevent new birds from spreading sickness they may be hiding to the other birds. Because in 45 days, all illnesses hidden or not hidden would become present, that is the timeframe recommended for quarantine.

Be sure to tame everyone at their own pace, and I wouldn't take away their seed completely. If you'd like to get your new bird to eat out of your hand, taming and getting her used to your hand first is the best option, and then you can slowly begin offering her seed.

Best of luck!

Thank you for the advice, but I took her to my vet friend before bringing her home. I had her separated from the boys for the first 3 days to observe her.

Everyone's been fine so far.
