Exclamation Old Lonely Budgie

not sure how long till someone replies but ill give it a go. 10 years ago a friend gave my family 2 budgies, one boy one girl, after about 2 years the girl kill the boy. ive never paid much attention to the bird until the past year ive tamed and it flies around my basement when im studying or playing video games and sits on my shoulder, until recently. ive been too busy to give it time because of studying so its always in the basement all by itself until i come back from school and get back to studying. ive put a mirror in the cage and i am considering buying it a friend but im not sure its a good idea considering what its done to the previous budgie. i just feel really bad its always in its cage now and never leaves stuck on its dumb mirror it just doesnt look happy and always runs away from my hand, what do you guys suggest thanks in advance.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

As your budgie is already 10 years old and has already exhibited violent and aggressive behavior toward another bird in the past, you should not even consider getting another budgie at this point in time.
How sad that she spent at least 7 years pretty much being ignored.

It's really too bad that you aren't able to spend more time with your bird at this time. What is her name?
Do you play music or the TV for her when you are away?
When you are at home studying, it would be best for you to talk out-loud to your budgie -- even if you simply read what you are studying out loud that will help her to feel as if you are paying attention to her and interacting with her.

She needs interaction, love and attention.
You aren't around her enough so that she trusts you which is why she runs away from your hand.
Try to make the rest of her life as healthy and happy for her as possible.

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:

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 there and to the forums!

I agree that your poor little one is probably not at all happy, but she could be if you were able to spend more time with her. Also, I would take her mirror out--that will just make her more depressed since she will bond with the "other budgie" in the mirror and not get any reciprocation from the attention she gives it.

Are you able to move her cage from the basement into a room where you spend more time?

This will help her to feel more included in your life.

FaeryBee has given some great advice, too. Be sure to read through the forums and resources posted above to ensure you're up to date on the very best of budgie care practices!

Be sure to keep us posted on how your little one progresses.

Best wishes!

I totally agree with the previous comments, For you to have your bird reach the age she is many here would envy you.
She is sitting next to her "Dumb" mirror because that is the only friend, attention she is receiving.
She needs to have some interaction with you, does she ever see sunlight, hear some music, Please enable her to be content and feel loved once more .
