Default I'm getting another budgie, Yay!

Hello all.

So I've decided to get Pippin a friend. She is a very timid girl and training and bonding with her is very slow but I love her a lot and will keep at it, she is getting there. The main reason with getting her a friend is that I am not at home as much as I would like to be as I work full time and I cannot bare leaving her that long in the day by herself, everyday I'm worrying about her. Also it may help with her coming out of her shell and to be more trusting of me and also to get her out of her cage! She doesn't even come to the front of the cage unless scared by something. Even speaking to her sometimes makes her shake

Anyways, there is a breeder that lives an hour away from me that has hand tame budgies, she says she has a little boy that would suit my needs and that he is ready at the weekend. I've got my cage ready for quarantining, read all the stickies I can, brought some fun toys for the baby to play with and a blankie so he feels all safe and snug in his new cage for when I get him home. I'm waiting to see a picture though just to make sure he looks well kept and in good condition. Hopefully I will be sharing a new addition this weekend! I hope so! I'm very excited

Oh how exciting! Pippin will be delighted the poor little girl - Oisin used to shake a lot when I got him too he was such a nervous little boy. I think a friend for Pippin will make a huge difference.

Can't wait to see pictures

That's wonderful news, and given Pippin's shy personality she will benefit tremendously from having a little play buddy!!
Best of luck at the breeder's and feel free to post some pics after the little fellow is all settled in your home.

Its the best thing you can do for Pippin. She will come on in leaps and bounds. She will love a little budgie friend. My two do everything together. Good luck with the new baby.

This sounds like great news! I hope that the new budgie settles in quickly and that quarantine goes by fast for all of you. Good job for getting Pippin a playmate!

Aww thank you everyone! You lot are loverly!

I think Pippin will be so happy once she has a friend. This forum helped so much in the decision. Plus she calls to downstairs budgies and it really is heart breaking. Photos will be all over the place, watch out you lot!
