Default Introducing Jay to Jimmy- Questions

It's getting closer to the time when Jimmy and Jay can finally be introduced. I'm planning to bring Jay's cage in tomorrow so they can meet behind bars.
I've done a deep clean of Jimmy's cage so I can do another clean just before they come together.

I know I should leave their cages together so they can 'visit' one another while still in their own space but I have a couple of other questions.

Jay hasn't been out of his cage since I got him (the conservatory wasn't bird proofed so he had to stay put). As I'm bringing him into a new room, after a day or two to settle in, should I let him explore the new room?

I don't want Jimmy to feel like someone is encroaching on his space but I don't want Jay to feel frightened in a new place.
I'm hoping that they will be keen to meet one another and that will stop any jealousy or nervousness for them.

I'm being rather cautious as though I've kept more than one budgie before, thy were always from the same budgie family so I didn't have to worry about them meeting one another. :O

What I did for my birds, because they have been in the same cage before, I put their cages facing one another and taped the door open to each one and kindof put each door adgescent to another and let them sort of work it out. I watched, of course, but they eventually stepped through the door and they rather enjoy their time together!

To answer your question, I move my birds sometimes, and they don't mind much new rooms, but if your bird has been in the same room all his life, then I would do what you mentioned and let him sort of get used to it for a few days

I think letting Jay have a bit of time to explore the new room is a wise decision.
Jay may be so anxious to meet Jimmy that he won't care that he's in a new space.
