Talking Getting a new budgie!

Hallo! So, today I wanted to talk about perhaps getting a new budgie. I wanted to discuss this further in depth because recently Pajarita, my other budgie's pair/friend, has passed away. So, i'm thinking about getting a new budgie, to make sure Pajarini doesn't get lonely or depressed. Problem is, I want to adopt, but the fees here where I live are expensive. It's tempting to get one from a pet shop, but a lot of birds/animals there are often sick with a disease of some sort. I don't want to sanitize Pajarini's cage again so soon. I'm leaning towards adopting, the only thing holding me back is all the papers and adopting fees.
The time i'll get my new parakeet will be on Christmas, so it'll be a nice surprise for Pajarini
I hope things will work out between them
I'm fine with getting either a hen or a male, just as long as it is in healthy condition and they get along well.
Any advice on where I should get my new budgie? Or how to introduce it to it's new home?
- Thanks for reading this!!
--Also i'm not sure if I posted this in the right category, Sorry

Keep in mind that if you get another budgie, you need a separate cage for it and you should also be financially able to provide it with necessary Avian Vet care at any time it becomes ill or injured.

Additionally, you should always be prepared and able to house the new budgie separately on a permanent basis if the new budgie and your current budgie end up not getting along.

If you do decide to get another budgie in the future, please be sure to observe quarantine for the new budgie.

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.


Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

When you are ready to introduce your two budgies after the 45 day quarantine period, please be sure to introduce them in neutral territory. Sometimes having two or three supervised meetings prior to moving them into one cage is advisable. Before introducing a budgie into another budgie's cage, the cage should be completely rearranged (perches, toys, food and water dishes) in order to help prevent any potential territorial issues.
