Default New adoption

Been keeping an eye on the local classified ads to find my (probably) boy a partner. My area's remarkably void of budgies...

Someone finally posted an ad, saying they were moving and needed to rehome their birds.

Poor girl was living in a flock of cockatiels, and was the bird her owner "didn't like much".

She's in a quarantine room, still scared out of her wits, but made it through the night without any panics. Once she gets a clean bill of health she'll be moving into a mansion with room to fly and probably the first budgie she's ever seen since she was hatched. Here's hoping she goes better than my first pair of adoptees

I'll be getting pictures once she doesn't seem so stressed.

Congratulations on your new budgie!

I'm so glad you were able to rescue her from a home where she was the bird "the owner didn't like much".

I'm sure once her 4-6 week quarantine is over she's going to be thrilled to have lots of room to play and a new budgie friend to enjoy.

I'm looking forward to seeing pictures once she's all settled in and not so stressed.

Congrats on your new budgie! I'm glad you have decided to adopt and give a second chance at a good, happy life for this budgie.

I'm wishing you the best of luck with your new budgie girl and will also be waiting for pics when she is more settled in your home.

Awesome to hear. No doubt she will find life as a budgie more to her liking...

Here she is. Unfortunately the wing feathers you aren't seeing are the prettiest part of her.

She's been having that slouch a lot :\

Truth is I'm somewhat concerned about a possible respiratory infection. I haven't heard any wheezing, and no sneezing, and there hasn't been any mucous. However, with being slouched more often than upright, visibly breathing hard at times, and tail-bobbing, I'm nervous that this is more than fear and adjustment.

Mind you, it's only the 4th day...

She's beautiful! From that short video she appears to be in good shape, she has good feather condition, her eyes are bright and alert and I don't notice a prominent tail bob. Some budgies adopt more of a relaxed and not so upright stance when resting and this doesn't mean they are sick.
My budgie Mona who is the oldest of the girls have always had this habit and from 2009 up to today, she never had a sick day.

Of course, if you suspect something might be up, you can always book her an appointment at the vet in order to put your mind more at ease.

She's a pretty girl and lucky to have found a good home. Give her some time to settle in. She's probably still a little nervous and unsure.
