Your blue budgie I'd say is 4 and a half months old.
I notice his eye looks swollen and inflamed, he can barely open the eye.
It would be best if you could have your budgie examined by an avian vet specialist or a vet who is experienced with birds. If they were bought together from the same place and since your female has been in contact with the male, it's also best to have her examined too as she may also need to be treated if the illness has been passed to her.

Your female budgie is a bit older at about 6 - 7 months old.

Sorry for your loss. He did look very ill and as you will learn by reading the sticky's, birds hide their illness until the last possible minute.

I would recommend that you take your green budgie to an avian vet because many illnesses are contagious and while she may not seem ill she also could have the same sickness.

Good luck and hugs.

Your single budgie will be fine by itself. You will just become its flock as long as you spend lots of time with her. I would worry less about getting a new one and more about taking the one you have to the vet to make sure she is healthy since you just got them and one died.

I really am very sorry for your loss as I know its so hard to loose a pet.

One recommendation I would like to give is to move the water bowl out from under the perch. That will keep you budgie from pooing in it.

Hi there,

I'm very sorry for the loss of your blue boy

However, Angie is right. As long as you spend lots of time with your green budgie girl, she will be most likely be perfectly happy! Be sure to read through the articles and stickies on Taming and Bonding so that you learn more on how to get to know your budgie and help her build her trust in you.

Best of luck!

I'm very sorry your male budgie didn't make it... Unfortunately, from these photos it was clear that he was struggling with an illness.

Be sure to wash and disinfect the whole cage and accessories and have your female budgie examined by an avian vet or a vet experienced with birds.

Given the current circumstances, now is not the best time to think of getting another budgie, not when you don't yet know if the illness that took your blue boy was passed to your female budgie.

Check this website, it seems this clinic on your area has avian services: https://www.indiamart.com/supreet-veterinary-clinic/

Here is a list of Veterinary hospitals, you can see some offer services for exotics pets where budgies are included.
https://www.dogsrkings.com/ludhiana-d...rinarians.html

Cover the cage on 3 sides in order to keep her warm and more comfortable.
If you have millet spray, you can soak it in electrolyte solution in hopes of giving your budgie a little boost and encourage her appetite.
For detailed info, check this link: https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...te-recipe.html
You can also offer egg food to your budgie as this is highly nutritious.

In case you don't know, any new bird must be quarantined in a different cage and room as a preventative measure in order to ensure any potential illness carried is not passed to the current pet bird(s) you already have.

Take a few months' time to truly connect and get to know your budgie's personality so that you have a better idea and are able to make a more educated decision on what is best for her overall happiness and welfare.
Depending on your budgie's personality and the general receptiveness she has towards you, on the amount of daily quality time you are able to give her and the work in taming that you put into her, she can be perfectly content and happy by being a solo budgie.

Best of luck with everything.
