Default new budgie stressed?

hi! so i had 2 budgies but one of them flew away, anyway last week i decided to get a new budgie (hes in quarantine at the moment) i got him from a breeder i know and i had got my other two from him too, he has never been by himself he's 11 weeks old now. So when i first got him he was pretty scared and biting from that when i got him out etc, hes hand tame. so his poops were OKAY during the start they were slightly watery sometimes but i was just taking that as stress from the move and being alone. anyway yesterday his poops started getting VERY watery and still are, i am probably going to take him to the vet tomorrow hopefully as i cant take him today. he is still eating/drinking sometimes he wont eat much vegies but does nibble on silverbeet that hangs up and eats seed. chirps sometimes too but not a lot and usually sits in the same spot for long periods at a time.. i get him out a couple of times a day and everything but im not sure what to do. do you think this could be from stress from being alone? im scared this quarantine is doing more harm then good for him at the moment. my mum was saying to get another bird to go with him (one that the breeder had that was with him previously if he has any left). any advice would be appreciate

At this point your budgie is still in the process of adjusting to the new environment as well as his new family. You can help your budgie in feeling more comfortable by covering the cage on 3 sides (leaving front part uncovered) and having some soothing music on low volume for him.
Getting a 3rd budgie would only make things more complicated when it comes to housing them on the same cage. More often than not, this number will not work, because one budgie would necessarily be left out, the potential for fights to happen is higher too.
For your situation, it's best to keep things as they are now and stick with a total of 2 budgies.

It's good that you will be taking your budgie to the avian vet for a check up.
If he gets the all clear from the vet, you can then move the newbie budgie's cage in the same room of your other budgie and start with the slow introductions.

Be sure to read this link for the detailed information:

Best of luck with your new budgie friend!

RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
