Whether or not you should get another budgie mostly depends on how often you are home with them? Not too sure on the death though, sorry, I'm sure someone else can clear the air for you. Hope you are okay. xoxo

Welcome to TB, sorry about your budgie's passing. If they had been together always and then your other budgie will be missing the budgie bond and company. I would watch closely your other bird for a few days t see if it gets sick before doing anything .

I'm so sorry for your loss... Unfortunately budgies (and other pet birds) are able to hide their illnesses quite well and we only notice something is wrong when they are far beyond our reach to help them.
Make sure to keep a close eye on your remaining budgie and see how she goes. If you do decide to get her a companion, you would have to quarantine the new bird in a different cage and room (for about a month) before introducing it to her. I hope you and your budgie will feel better soon.

I'm very sorry for your loss.

You may want to take some time for yourself and Blue before you rush into getting another budgie.

Spend more time with Blue -- he's going to wonder where his friend is. Keep a close eye on him to make sure he isn't sick, or better yet -- take him into an Avian Vet for a check-up to make sure he's OK.
The vet can establish a base-line with Blue for the future in case he does become ill at any time.

If you do choose to get another budgie, please remember you should quarantine the new bird(s) for 4-6 weeks.
Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room your current bird(s) is in for a period of 4-6 weeks.

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.

As everyone has said here, time is the thing to help the sharpness of your loss to dissipate - in the meantime, hold fast to your memories Blue is always with you, fly high little one
