Hi! I had a budgie couple for 1 year and i had to find a new home for the budgie male for some reasons....now i have left the budgie female and since the male left....she is very sad, she is not even eating from her food bowl, i have her a little bit of millet the other days.

Is she going to be ok?
What should i do ? I feel so sorry now i want her to be ok

* i gave her some millet, not i have her some millet, sorry

Should i give her millet from my hand? Is it the same thing as budgie's food? ...cause i know that they are not allowed to have to much millet...please help me guys

I merged your posts...

Spend as much time with her as you can, budgies do get depressed when they lose a friend. Keep giving her normal food, and adding treat's like millet is fine. She is feeling some stress, so you may see some changes in her dropping's, and of course her behavior. When you can't be around her, play some music to keep her company. I'm sure other's will be along to give you some more tip's...

I am sorry you had to separate her from her mate, budgies do grieve and she will be missing him very much. She will need lots of love and you being with her to help her get through this hard time. Give her millet and some green foods like broccoli, basil , thyme as well as her seeds.

with Randy and Cathy
As long as you spend as much time as possible with her and she has plenty of good foods, she'll be fine. It's okay to give her a little more millet than usual during this time to get her spirits up.
Move her cage (it it's movable) to where you are so she can begin and strengthen her bond with you as she gets over her grief.

I'm sure she'll be fine! You can also put probiotics, like organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with the "mother" in it in her water to boost her immune system. Hope your little girl feels better!

Birds and animals have their own way of showing grief and sadness. Your female bird is probably in depression and moreover, she is lonely too. So as others have suggested, you need to lighten up her mood and cheer her up. You can play some budgie sounds which will surely cheer her. You may also consider getting her a new companion(male) which will help greatly.
No, budgies don't remember the incidents. I mean their memory is extremely short-lived. You need not worry about that as she'll definitely look up to you and bond with you in time.

Do you mind my asking why your male had to be rehomed?

While your female may not remember you taking him out of the cage away from her, she is still definitely going to miss him and grieve for him.

Try to spend as much time with her as possible and make sure she knows she is loved. :

I recently moved into a studio flat with my gf and the male was making to much noise all the time, we are working a lot and we couldn't rest at all because of him, he was making noise even when we was covering the cage....that's the reason it was very hard to find him a new home and is hard still...but my budgie female is much better now, she is eating....she came on my finger, i let her out of the cage more often then ussually, when she's alone at home i'm leaving her the radio on ....she looks more happy now...thanks a lot for all your support

I'm glad to hear your little female is doing better now. What is her name, by the way?

Like other animals, your budgie knows you by your voice, your appearance and your particular smell.

I believe animals (including budgies) often have a much better memory than humans sometimes give them credit for.

I understand why you are concerned your female will associate you with the "loss" of her friend.
However, the more time you spend talking, reading and singing to her, the more trust she will develop in you.
Her affection and friendship will soon be focused more toward you as her "flock-mate".
