Default Introducing new budgie

Frist,i want to say hello to the members of this forum,this being my first post.My problem:I had my male budgie for about 7 months(we get along good,he is tame)and yesterday i thought about another bird,because i can't spend as much time with him as I want to.So i decided to buy another bird.Today i went to the pet shop,bought a brand new cage(a bigger one)new toys,and a female budgie.I wanted to avoid another male,because from what i read it is possible for them to fight.Now i think a male would have been better.So...I came home,put the cage on the kitchen table(with the bird in it)and my male budgie went straight to the new cage to explore it.The big big mistake was to open the cage so that my bird would enter(i thought that maybe they know eachother because they were from the exact same flok)Both birds flew from the cage,and landed on the christmas tree(one on a branch,one on another)And are still there,not even loking at eachother.So what do I do next?Any help would be apreciated

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

When bringing home a new budgie, it's best to follow quarantine procedures by housing the new budgie in a separate cage and room away from your other budgie. This is done in order to prevent a potential illness carried by the new bird to be spread onto your other bird: https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...necessary.html
As for the introductions, after quarantine time is over, it's advisable to place the newbie's cage close to your other budgie's cage in order for them both to get used to each other's presence. Once they show signs of curiosity and of wanting to meet, you can then allow your budgies to have closely supervised out of cage time together on neutral grounds (away from cages).
Depending on how well they get on, you can then decide to let them share the same cage together, they can even choose to do so on their own accord. Generally speaking, two male budgies will get along well and be very good friends. In the end it's all a matter of the budgie's personality. It's not a given that one male/female pair will get on well.
The detailed information on this link should be of use: https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...o-budgies.html

Is your male budgie at the very least finger tamed? If so then you can make him step onto your finger/hand and gently lead him back to his cage.
For your new budgie, it will be trickier since chances are high she is not tame.
By moving very carefully as if you are in slow motion and placing her cage next to the Christmas tree, you could try to lure her back in.
You can place some millet by the cage's door, as well as a perch near it in order to facilitate your new budgie to get into the cage.
If this doesn't work, then you can use one of the perches and try to see if she steps up on it so that you can carefully lead her back inside the cage.

You can use the quarantine time to work on establishing a bond with your new budgie and to later on start the training process. For all the information on this matter, be sure to check the Taming and Bonding section of Talk Budgies.

Hi there and to the forums!

Two males get along just fine, just as a male and a female budgie do

Congratulations on your new budgie! Aluz has given great advice and FaeryBee has provided excellent resources.

I agree with the wonderful posts above! It's important to follow quarantine procedures, as well as to introduce the two budgies gradually after that time.

It can be expected that your relationship with your current budgie will change as he may prefer to spend time with your new female when the time comes.

However, if you slowly work with your new girl to get her used to you during quarantine, it's very likely that she will be more comfortable with you and will eventually spend time with you and your current budgie.

Be sure to read through everything to ensure you're up to date on the very best of budgie care practices! If you have any questions afterwards, be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

We'd love to meet you budgies sometime, too!

Cheers!
