Default My budgies behavior change??

Since my last thread most of you guys said I should get a new budgie, so I did. But now since the new girl came my old budgie ( Rainy ) behavior has changed ALOT ( and the new girls name is Cloud ) Rainy NEVER ran away from millet or from my hand to be honest but today when I went to give Rainy some millet he RAN AWAY And started screeching for help so did Cloud, I got Cloud from the flea market, but the flea market was HORRIBLE there were alot of sick budgies in there and I saw parrot babies in bin cages! But lets not talk about that, when the guy came to get Cloud they all scattered and started screeching and now since I got cloud and when i stick my hand in to change the water Rainy started doing it too! Do you think this behavior will go away I'm really worried should I give cloud away? Oh and I didint seperate them my second cage was thrown out, how do I fix this behavior??

You should really buy a new cage and separate them. Since you mentioned that where you purchased Cloud was filled with sick budgies, that should have been an extra push to quarantine her from Rainy. Not only does quarantine help prevent transmitting sickness to another budgie, but it also gives them time to adjust to one another. Rainy is probably nervous due to the new budgie being there, so he will need him to adjust to her. I suggest purchasing another cage to separate them, and wait 30 days to see if Cloud or Rainy become sick, which then they will need to see an Avian vet.

I think you need to buy another cage and definitely quarantine Cloud.
Budgies will naturally follow what another budgie does they are flock birds. Rainy will be very confused and scared as well.
Rainy has not changed, he is merely doing instinctively what happens .
Does Rainy have out of cage time? this is when you need to work with him when he is on his own away from Cloud. Also with her being a hen makes it more difficult as hens are most usually more aggressive and territorial.

The worst thing you can do is put a new bird into your existing cage straight away (its just like letting a stranger share your bed without permission). Budgerigars must always be slowly introduced over a two week period, the bird should be kept in a separate cage in a separate room for the first 4 days, allowing you to monitor the health and worm, mite and lice treat it. After that stage you can keep the cages in the same room so the birds can see and hear each other. introduce them face to face by letting them both out of the cages at the same time. when the birds are used to each other you can then move them to the same cage. Your original bird is probably feeling very disturbed and upset, particularly if the new bird is playing woth all his/hers toys and is a dominant personality. You must reintroduce, and get a larger cage to ensure success with your birds. Good luck.
