Cool Introducing ourself

Hello everyone

First thank you all for those countless and very helpfull posts on this superb forum! I already got answered alot of our questions and learned a lot about the things we need too change and evolve with our little fellas! :-)

First to us:
My wife introduced the world of budgies to me and i cant thank her enough for that! She had budgies since she is little. So she is much more expierenced then I am... Although she has most experience with having single budgies. We both want to keep our buddies as healthy and happy as possible and also have a good companions for us to have joy with!

Now to our "flock":
We are having budgies together since a bit more then 2 years now. Our first kid was Wilson which was brought to us from my wifes parents from tunisia. He was her everything and she was super happy when we got him! He was super tame and very fixed on humans cause he never had a budgie friend.. so I insisted on having a little budgiegirl for him. Also because my wife started to work from time to time and he was alone quiet a bit. So we welcomed Xena in our lifes. She came to us from our petstore of trust and was about 6 month old when we got her. Unfortunately I think we made sort of a lot of beginner mistakes with her... she is now around 2 years old and is not on the level we wish she would be... she comes to our hands with the right motivation (food) but is still kind of scared of us... She is comfortable and we think happy with us so we are good on that! But it would be great if she would open up more... She was extremely bond to our buddie Wilson and was like glued to him... it was nice to see even so Wilson did not really knew how to react in some occasions but it was a joy to see them together!

So yeah... around 3 weeks ago our buddie Wilson died... he had a inflamation of his lungs which in the beginning seemed to be cured after medication from a trustworthy vet but after 4 weeks he showed the symptoms again and unfortunately did not survive the 2nd treatment... i spoke to the vet and he said its likely that the second time was a infection of his lungs with mould so the medication did not work at all... It really broke our hearts to lose him... such a friendly and funny fella... we will miss him alot!

The next day we decided to visit the petstore and have a chat with our saler of trust about Xena and what to do next. She really wasnt the same without Wilson and sang sad songs i never heard from her and it broke my heart to see her looking everywhere for her buddy... So after a good informative chat we went to a bird exhibition in the area and ended up with our newest family member Mr. Spock! He is mega cute and attentive and i see the potential of a great partner for Xena and good friend for us in him!

So thats sort of the main reason why we joined this community. My wife and I need some expertiece so we wont mess things up with them!

We noticed that having 2 untamed budgies ist quiet a challenge for newbies like us so im already super happy to have found alot of beginner stepps!

Today Mr. Spock and Xena are seperated from each other to get used to us! I hope Xena will bond with us like this and its much better for Mr. Spock to get used to his new home. We had them together for around 3 days and it went great. At least for them... she litterly pooped on us and it was too much stress to work with them. So yeah... Thats our little flock now!

looking forward for a nice time in this forum and the expertise from all you great budgie parents!

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear about Wilson, but it sounds like a great idea to have a friend for Xena, since she was used to having Wilson around. My Dad suggested Spock as a name for one of my budgies- I liked the name, it was just it was a female bird and it's clearly a male name!

Your plan for taming sounds good, and will be beneficial for you in the long run.

Welcome to the forums!
It's great that you have already been taking advantage of the information found here at Talk Budgies and no doubt the several articles and sticky threads at the top of each section of the forums will continue to be quite helpful and of benefit to your budgies.

I'm very sorry for the recent passing of your budgie Wilson.
When bringing home a new pet bird, it's always best to follow quarantine procedures in order to prevent a potential illness carried by the new bird to be spread onto the other bird.
You can find detailed information on this link: https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...necessary.html

Since you plan on taming your budgies and forming a long lasting bond with them, be sure to check the stickies here: Taming and Bonding - Talk Budgies Forums

Best of luck with Xena and Mr. Spock!
