Question Reliant budgies

I have never owned any birds before, but when I came back home after visiting my mom for the weekend, my dad had gotten me 2 budgies. I've been reading up on them quite a bit, but I'm still unsure about some behaviors in my budgies. So, is it normal for one budgie to be seemingly completely reliant on the other? My male budgie, Punyama, seems to be very reliant on my female budgie, Temmie, when it comes to behavior. If she is comfortable, he is comfortable. When she eats, he is willing to go over to the food and eat. This is probably isn't a problem, but I'm curious to know if other budgies act like this.


The green budgie is Punyama(male), and the blue budgie is Tem(female)

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Would you post full frontal pictures of your budgies' ceres taken in natural light? It is difficult to determine if you are correct about their genders from the pictures posted.

It appears Temmie is younger than Punyama.
It is perfectly normal for one budgie to be more dependent than the other as each budgie has his/her own unique personality.
Some budgies are independent and brave whereas others are most comfortable when they are following the other's lead.

Please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:
https://talkbudgies.com/how-guides/17...otobucket.html

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi Blaze and to the forums!

FaeryBee has given you excellent advice. Your budgies are very cute

Full-focus photos taken in natural light will be much better for identifying gender

Meanwhile, be sure to read through the links provided above to ensure you're up to date on the best of budgie care! If you have any questions afterwards, be sure to ask! We'd love to help

I hope to see more of your little birds soon, it's great to have you here with us!

Hi.. cute little budgies! I'm not an expert, but I find that reliance on one budgie and following the lead can actually help you as the owner. My first budgie, Cody, was a trusting little guy and would step up and was people friendly. That helped a great deal with the other budgies as they watched him.. so hopefully that will happen for you, too.!

All budgies do have their own personality, some are more outgoing than others. They are a flock orientated bird, this means usually there is a dominant bird that rules the aviary or cage. You have been given great links to read through, please do take the time to do so.

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your new budgies!
You have certainly come to the right place as you will find all you need to know on budgie care here.

I agree that the behaviour you have described is perfectly normal and present not just in budgies, but also in other species of pet birds.
Depending on personality, some birds are more curious and outgoing while others are more shy and nervous. The shy ones will naturally lean more on their braver mates who will offer them the needed support.
From the second photo you posted, which was taken in better lighting it really seems that you have two budgie girls there (cere on green budgie is quite white in colour).

Best of luck with your new feathery friends!

Thumbs up

I will attempt to take some better pictures of them today after school. Thanks for the links, Faery!
