Exclamation Question about bonding with two budgies

Hey,

So recently I got a new budgie for my existing one Cody as I felt he was lonely and I couldn't be there a ton to entertain him. His name's Locus and I put them in separate cages on opposite sides of the room to make sure they won't kill each or something. They seem to be happy with each other but I'm not sure if this will negatively affect the bonding process with my budgies since they don't seem to care much about me. Should I put them in separate rooms and focus on taming 1 bird?

Thanks.

Hi.

Did you follow quarantine when you got Locus? Ideally a new bid should be kept in a different room as far from Cody as possible.
While in quarantine, it would then be possible to work on taming them individually during this time.

As indicated, the birds should be quarantined.

Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room where your current bird(s) are housed for a period of 30-45 days.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.

It is easier to tame and bond with each bird individually so having them in separate rooms will allow you to do so with less effort than having them housed together.

Please take the time to read the stickies at the top of the Training and Bonding section of the forum.

I've moved Locus to another room and I'm going to try and split my time between them before I try putting them back together, thanks.

It's important to make sure you look through the training and bonding section of the forum that will give you tips to bond successfully- things like not over doing the amount of bonding you try to do at once and positive reinforcement.
