Default Rehoming Budgie

I've had my budgie for a little over a year now. I recently had to move quite quickly, and ended up signing a lease at an apartment that doesn't allow birds. I wasn't made aware of this until after I'd signed the lease and paid the deposit, and since I wasn't able to afford the cancellation fee plus losing my deposit, I had to move in.

I am considering having several friends take turns taking care of him for the next year until I can move out, but I'm afraid for his well-being. I know budgies don't like change and I feel incredibly guilty about keeping him under these circumstances of bouncing around to wherever I can keep him. There may be a family that has several birds that would take him but I wouldn't be able to get him back in a year. It sounds like he would be happy there but it would of course be incredibly sad for me to give him up. I just want what's best for him though and I wanted to ask the community here for advise.

It would be great if you could find a good home for a year and get him back when you can get a new place that allows it. If you can't do that though, the best thing for him is a good permanent home. Maybe a family member or friend that you can visit regularly and keep a relationship with him until the years up. Hope it work's out, keep us posted...

Randy has given great advice as well as good options.
Would it be possible to leave him at a relatives and visit once and a while to maintain your relationship together?
I think this would be the best possible option if you still choose to have a bond with him.

I agree, I'm sorry you're going through this problem.

I would also suggest a close friend or relative you can visit regularly

Please keep us posted!

The best scenario for your budgie would be a home where he can settle down and not have to be moved and meet new people and surroundings. This would be quite stressful for him, as much as you are sad you need to do what is right for him, is there a family member or close friend who can have him for the full amount of time? You can also visit and keep your relationship with him that way. I hope you find a solution that works for all of you soon.
