Question Introducing A New Bird - Help?

Hi All!
I am planning to get another darling budgie to keep my bird and myself happy! I am excited, thats something I can't lie about, but problem is, I am nervous.. My questions are:

  • Will a new female make friends with my first male?
  • Can they be different ages? (My first is around 10 months while the new might be younger/older)
  • How long is the time period for Quarantine?
  • Will they later get a long in the same cage?
  • How do I introduce them together?

Thanks again!

Luna and Pina

Hi, Luna

The picture of the budgie in your signature really looks like a female.
If you post close-up pictures of your budgies' cere taken in natural light, we can determine if you actually have a female rather than a male.

You should quarantine any new bird(s) for 4-6 weeks.
Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room your current bird(s) is in for a period of 4-6 weeks.

Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks. Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...important.html

When Quarantine is complete, place the quarantined bird's cage next to the other for a few days to allow the birds to become acquainted.

Yes, the two budgies can be different ages.

After that, the birds should be allowed to be introduced in neutral territory under close supervision

Before introducing a bird into a cage already occupied by another, everything in the cage should be removed and rearranged to help prevent the original occupans from being too territorial.

Birds are like people in that they each have their own personalities and likes and dislikes. While I believe the majority of budgies are able to get along, there are those who simply do not like one another or one incessantly bullies or is aggressive with the other. If/when that happens, the best thing to do is keep the two in separate cages and only allow them supervised out-of-cage time together.

Hello Luna

I agree completely with Deb....That is all
I would get a little male because males get along with everyone, as opposed to another female who might not get along with your current budgie as well.
Please let us know how it goes!

Hello once more Luna, I am happy you have decided to add to your flock. Sounds like you are more relaxed and content regarding Pina that is awesome. How exciting you are getting another budgie, waiting for the pictures
