Questions about Males and Females
As some of you may have seen, we have two female budgies currently in quarantine.
They are still fairly young and one is bossier than the other but the other girl stands her ground.
In the few days that Jimmy and Jay have been together, they are really bonding well together. It's really adorable and although they are still getting used to one another, they are getting alone really well.
But I'm wondering if anyone can give me an idea with what to expect when the girls eventually 'move in'? I know personalities of the birds will be a huge part of it, but will Jimmy and Jay's bonding be changed by the addition of females?
Will they bond with the girls?
The girls don't seem to have any closeness at all. They're just in a cage together.
I can't have a permanent cage to keep the girls apart as the cage I got for the boys is so big but I'm really anxious that adding the females is going to change things because it will instinctively change the males behaviour.
If they didn't get along, could two females be kept together?
And would the boys adjust back to normal if it didn't work out with the girls.
Just so you know, I was also this anxious about Jimmy and Jay living together. It turned out great but I like to work with 'worse case scenarios' just in case.
Thanks in advance.
