Default All new Grim?

Ok so I had Grim for some time not I got him a new cage a couple of months ago + new toys and new treats he is loving the cage but what I think a bit to much mostly his mirror every time I go to take him out now he dos not want to get out he will jump off my hand and go right back to his mirror or he will bite the bars before I get him out and pull himself back inside and go right back to the mirror, is he lonely? (even though I am a gamer and he is in my room and I am in my room for hours and hours and hours un end I spend like more then a couple of hours playing with him but I still think he might be lonely.:confused2:

I would actually take the mirror out. He may love it, but single budgies tend to get "obsessed" with their mirrors and become antisocial, territorial, and aggressive towards their owners.

If he's active, plays with his toys, and responds well to interaction with you, he's probably fine, but if he is largely inactive and doesn't play, then you could consider getting him a little male friend to play with when you're not there
Hope that helped

Grim has decided his mirror is another budgie and he's become obsessed with his reflection. This sometimes happens with a solitary budgie.

I would remove the mirror and try to get him interested in you and in other toys. You might want to try clicker training with him.

If he seems sad and depressed after a couple of weeks without the mirror, then I'd consider getting him a friend.

Please remember you should quarantine the new bird 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.
