Default New, but not baby budgie

You may have read in In Memory, but our darling Sonny died unexpectedly yesterday. My heart is broken, be was so sweet.

We discussed getting a baby to quarantine and introduce but my dad has asked us to take his budgie Frankie as they have trouble caring for him and, indeed, they have not been good at interacting with him or letting him out, which I have found very difficult as I suggested they get him in the first place.

Frankie is 2, he can fly but is not very good at it ( compared to my free range lot).My plan was to bring him in his cage and have him in the next room, not a tight quarantine, but I know he is well, he has effectively been in quarantine for 2 years. Hopefully he will settle and begin to come out, and perfect his flying there - but will still be able to hear and see the others..another new experience. The hop is that he can join them in Jazzboy towers if they all get along.

He is finger tame - not keen on baths as far as I can see.

Anyone got any tips? The rest of the flock are males so I expect there will be some jostling for position in the pecking order to be gone through.

Sorry Sonny has gone. That is great you can take your dad's bird in. Sound's like you have a pretty good plan in place to introduce him. No doubt his flying will improve, and he will surely enjoy being with some budgie buddies....

Sounds like an awesome plan. While I'm so sorry over Sonny it looks like this is an excellent development for Frankie. Please give us some pics once he's settled a little! I"m sure his flying will improve, my Sweetie was not the best flyer, he was never let out at his old home, but now he's so good at it now he gets practice every day!

I agree with all that's been said I think this would be the best way to acclimatize him to his new home without rushing him or the flock.
Keep us posted, I can't wait to meet him!

Liz,

I'm very sorry for your loss of little Sonny.

Your plan for acclimating Frankie into your home and the flock sounds great! It's wonderful you are going to be able to give Frankie the opportunity to have much more out of cage time as well as more love and interaction.

I look forward to hearing how Frankie settles in and hope to see some pictures soon.

Sad about Sonny....but happy for Frankie. Bet he settles in right quick and learns to fly with your love and attention.

Update.

Frankie has been with us for a week. He tolerated the drive over here really well, he just came in his cage, covered, and on the back seat of the car with my partner sitting with him as I drove.

We started him in the room next to the kitchen where our budgies live free. He came out on my finger and grew in bravery, got increasingly noisy - the others pretty much ignoring him.

Today we took his cage into the kitchen and he was a real star. The rest of the flock were very wary and have kept their distance whilst he has been out and explored the whole place, including the top and inside of their cage. I think it has been the best day of his life. So happy.

Good for Frankie to have found a loving family! Let's hope the others will accept him soon as well.
Sorry for your loss though...
