After being alone for 1.5 years I finally got Daisy a partner! Ozzie is multicolored and male. Daisy is a male too. He is absolutely in love with Ozzie and has been treating him very well!
Ozzie on the other hand is still pretty nervous of his surroundings. I bought him from a local market here in India and he seemed pretty chirpy at the pet shop. It's been a week and so far he has only chirped thrice. He is healthy, I just wanted to know if this is normal? I'm hoping he'll be back to his normal self in a few days.
I have attached some pictures of them. Daisy is the white one and Ozzie is the multicolored one.
Congratulations on your latest arrival!
Your new boy Ozzie is a gorgeous cobalt violet single factor golden face spangle budgie.
When bringing home a new pet bird, it's always best to follow quarantine procedures before introducing the new bird into the flock.
This is done as a preventative measure in case the new bird is carrying a potential illness that can be spread to the existing flock.
Even though your budgies have already met, you can still quarantine Ozzie.
You can find detailed information on this link: https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...necessary.html
As for Ozzie being more quiet, he is still in the process of settling in to his new home and it takes time for him to feel fully comfortable. You can help Ozzie by covering his cage on 3 sides (leaving front part uncovered) and having some background music on for him. The music or background sound from the television will likely encourage Ozzie to sing.
Best of luck with your new little friend!
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
