I have in the past week, I have unfortunately lost two budgies to the open world. But I have now noticed that my female, Annie, is allowing both the males , Dave and Rubio, to kiss, preen, and feed her. Is this normal? I thought they only bonded with one bird? I have had budgies since I was 8, and I have never saw this??
From your other thread I gather Annie is the lost stray you have recently found and rescued.
It's extremely important and vital to folow strict quarantine procedures for all lost stray pet birds that are rescued and this is done for very obvious reasons, there could be mites or some other illness that she may be carrying and can spread to your flock.
Introducing this bird to yours is a really bad idea.
Not only that, you haven't mentioned if you fixed whatever issue you had with the cage that allowed Izzy to escape.
'Annie' also isn't your bird.
Someone could be heartbroken about losing her.
Have you tried to find her owners? You posted about losing Maxine but have never mentioned if you have done anything to find her (or Izzy) and done anything to find Annie's home.
The purpose of this forum is to promote the best practices in care of budgies for their optimum health and well-being.
Just "having" budgies from a young age is not an indication that an individual is experienced in the proper way to care for these birds.
It distresses me greatly that you indicate you have "lost" two budgies in the past week. Additionally, you did not follow quarantine with the "rescued" bird.
I would advise that you take the time to read ALL of the information in the Budgie Articles and Stickies throughout the forum to ensure you are giving your budgies the best possible chance for health and happiness.
If, after doing so, you have questions, you can send a Private Message to me and I will reopen this thread so you can post them.
