Default Having a bit of a nightmare

hiya all
Well I've quarantined Rio in his own cage from Tilly - trouble is when my girl is on a mission she is on a mission - I've come home from work to find that she has for the first time ever managed to get through the bars with force - get to rios cage and managed to open his doors and get in with him - I was horrified !!!! He's supposed to be quarantined and she's done all this in the space of 8 hours that I've been at work
At first I had a heart attack thinking where is she - I couldn't see her and I was having a panic attack - then I saw and couldn't figure out how she got in there - I phoned my partner up and asked him - he had been at work all evening so hadn't been home - I know I definitely put her in her cage and Rio has been in his so I know it wasn't me -the only explanation is her forcing her way through the bars
It's a vision cage and never in nearly 4 years has she even attempted that
I'm so worried - she's flying ok and she seems ok but with pushing herself out could she have caused any harm? I'm so worried now
Problem is now I know I can't have them in sepearte cages as she only has to be shown something once and she will do
It again ! I don't want to come home from work with Tilly either injured , hurt internally or hung! I'm petrified now - and by the looks of it she's obsessing over him and he's not at all interested in a friendship
Have I done the right thing?! Maybe I should of just had Tilly as a lone budgie

So upset and at a loss at the moment

Oh Sammy what a nightmare to walk in the door and find no Tilly I'd be freaking out if I couldn't find Indi....

What a naughty girl Tilly is... Is Tilly back in her cage now. When you have the Rio in your room you should shut your bedroom door when you go to work so Tilly can't get in there again.. And what a clever bird Tilly is to have opened the door to be with Rio...... Looks like Tilly and Rio are going to be friends..... Also I think that Tilly wanted to say hi to Rio......I think that someone else will give you some good advice..... You may have to take Tilly to the Avain vet for a check up to see that she is alright...

Oh dear!! I'm sorry I can't help giggling. She is one determined little lady thats for sure!!! I'm assuming you have checked her over and by the sounds of it she is behaving like s healthy bird? I think all you can do at this stage is keep them together and monitor closely. Hopefully Rio will come round to her soon
Do the two cages have shutter doors that she could lift up?

Sammie,

If Tilly is that determined then you might as well forget the quarantine and just let them be together. Are they in the same cage right now?

It sounds to me like Tilly very much wants a friend and Rio will just need some time to warm up to the idea since he's new.

That is amazing and I think I too would be very worried about her injuring herself trying again. I am totally sold on the need and importance of quarantine, but I think in this case, if it were me, I'd leave them together.

Another thing i was thinking that you could do is take Rio to the Avian vet for a full check up and if he passes the check then you can take Rio out of quarantine and let Tilly be with Rio.. It looks like that Tilly is longing for a friend to be with while you are at work.... Once the vet has checked over Rio and gives him a the ok to be with Tilly i say put them together....

Oh, goodness, Tilly is a smart and fearless little girl!
Anyone seen Harry Potter? I feel a little bit like Mr. Weasely in the second one (after Fred and George steal the car): First I want to congratulate her and say what a clever little girl she is, and on the other hand I want to say "That was very wrong, Tilly, very wrong indeed!"

I'm glad she's okay and that nothing happened, but I agree that if Rio seems healthy and she's in there anyways, then they may as well stay together since she clearly wants a buddy

Her bars are small but must be big enough to get through - being nearly 4 years of it never being a problem I'm assumed she is ok

His cage has the sliding doors

He doesn't appear to have any ill health at all - looks well, feathers in good condition , droppings look normal etc but I'm an absolute paranoid wreck that Tilly may become sick as I haven't been able to carry out the full quarantine period - I know for safety I have to allow them as even if I sepearte them into separate rooms like I do
, Tilly will still know how to escape and that's my main issue ! She is determined - she's always had her own way ! Always!
She always had Harley there for company , they were never apart , she called and he followed , she loves company and freedom so that's what she thought she would get while I was at work

She's a little puffy today but not constant - it's when she settles and I don't know if I'm being over paranoid but it just worries me as I know it can mean ill health - her droppings are normal - she's weighing in today at 37g
They seem to be ok , Rio is now finger tame and fearless

I sepearted them last night into their own cages for sleeping and this morning I had to let Tilly out as she was pacing and trying to force her wing through the bar!
This little madam can honestly give me a heart attack! I love her dearly I just don't want to compromise her health but her safety is overriding everything at the moment

She is eating and doing her usual daily play , she is only puffy when standing on one leg and relaxing next to Rio at the mo

These budgies!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about worry their owners half to death

Oh and she is washing herself a LOT today - is this normal behaviour to?

Tilly is a very clever and naughty girl! I think she will be great friends with Rio since she seems to like him very much! Can you safe the cage doors with small carabiners? I think Rio will warm up to Tilly. How much is the space of the bars of Tilly's cage? I really can't imagine that it is possible that a budgie can squeeze itself through the bars if there is only 1 cm space between the bars.
