Default Some advice please

My mum and dad have recently got an Aviery where they have 7 birds who have all been together for a month or so. Three of them had a massive fight so had to be separated. I got a cage and brought one here to my house. He has been with me in my bedroom since Sunday. However he is not himself. In the Aviery he was the naughty one causing mischief and winding the others up and always singing. Now he is so quiet, he is hand trained and I can get him out of the cage but he will fly around the room once and then go back into the cage and stay there. I think he is scared of me as when he sits on me he is very still. I fed him so many times in the Aviery and had him on my hands so I thought he would be used to me. He was also quite close to a female in the Aviery they used to preen each other and spent a lot of time with her. I'm worried he is sad. I will be getting another one to keep him company but have to wait a week or so. Is it just new surroundings or will he be sad to be on his own now. A coupe of times I've played budgie noises and he started chipping right away and if the cage door is open flys out and around. I don't know what to do to chert him up until I get him a buddie

Welcome to the forums!
It's great that you were able to take a fast action when you saw the fighting and decided to separate the budgies. From your description it really does seem your budgie boy is missing having at least one same species friend and given the fact he didn't get along with some budgies of his previous flock, it's possible the same thing can happen if you get him a new friend.
The best option would be to reunite him with his female friend, I think it's the choice that would make him most happy and it was what I would do if I were in your shoes.
Since he is in a new home it will also take him a while to get used to the new environment, you can cover 3 sides of his cage in order to make him feel more comfortable and at ease.

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

I agree with aluz that it sounds as though your little male is missing his favorite female friend.

If you are unable to reunite her with him, please remember if you do choose to get a new budgie friend for him you should quarantine the 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.

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

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.

In the meantime, play music for him if you are not with him so he doesn't feel so alone. Spend as much time as you can with him reading, singing and talking to him.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about your budgie and hopefully seeing some pictures soon!!

Hello and welcome to the forums!

It's great to hear you were able to take in the little troublemaker! I agree completely with the previous advice. Also, I'd like to add that he will likely be looking for a "flock" although he didn't get along with some of the others, so you being with him as much as possible will help ease his grief and help him to accept you. For now, he's a little lonely and sad, but as he settles in, I'm sure he'll be fine. Please keep us posted!
We'd love to see pictures of him if you get the chance

Thank you for your replies. I don't think he was the one that started the fight. It was very odd that they had a fight. We are not sure what happened as it was at night. Whether something freaked them out or not we do not know. I only took the one I did because he was the one that came off the worse. They have never had a fight before. The one I took (jon snow) is my mum's little baby and she is really upset he has had to go, the female he was attached I'd also a fav of hers so I don't think she will want to lose them both.

Since it was at night, it's safe to say they weren't fighting. They had in fact a night fright. Something must have scared them and they began flying around and banging on the cage. Depending on cases, they can loose a lot of feathers (mainly the longer flight feathers and the bigger tail feathers) and they can also suffer from minor injuries from bumping hard into perches, cage bars, toys, etc.
Since it wasn't Jon Snow's fault and your mother is attached to him, maybe you could return him to her. He would be back to his familiar place with his mate and on the aviary.

If you do keep him and your mother is not willing to let go of the female to keep Jon Snow's company, nor any other bird in the aviary that could get along with him, then you can get him an entirely new friend. And as was mentioned before, this new friend should be quarantined for a period of about a month.

In the meanwhile you can work on getting Jon Snow's trust in you. You can check the Training and Bonding section here at the forums for all the important info on the subject.

Good luck with everything!

I totally agree with aluz.

We weren't aware until your last post that this happened during the night.
When birds have a night fright they can become very badly injured.

I would consider returning the little male to the aviary under the circumstances since he misses his friends and is one of your Mom's favorite budgies.
