Unhappy One of my two budgies died, get another for the lone one?

I used to have two budgies, one died and now I'm thinking of getting another one. The two before were both male, so this time im going to get a female for my single male. However, I do NOT want them to make babies or lay eggs! Should I still get a female budgie or should I get another male or should I just not a get a budgie at all?

I'm sorry for your loss RIP.

Budgies do best in pairs Especially if you cannot be with him 24/7
Another budgie is a good idea.
Female/male is all good.
Females are generally a little bossy, but they still would do great with your budgie.
Of course 30 day minimum quarantine with your new budgie away from your previous budgie.
You should thoroughly clean your cage, because you don't know what caused your budgie to pass away.

I am sorry for your loss. May your budgie rest in peace. I agree with the above posts. If you are unable to accompany your budgie all the time then they need a friend. Male or female does not matter. In my opinion, I prefer males over females as they are not bossy, don't shred things, and are not aggressive. However that is only my opinion so it is all up to you. Good luck!

(((hugs))) for your loss.

I think you and your sweetie would be happier if you adopted another budgie. (Perhaps you could rescue one from an animal shelter or previous owner who needs to rehome his bird.) Male or female is fine. They won't breed unless you provide a nestbox. Make sure you quarantine the new bird.

Best wishes!

Deep sympathies for your loss. RIP little budgie.

Yes, by all means get another budgie for the one that is left. I've had male/female pairs and it's always gone well...mine do have sex but never produce eggs as I don't provide a nest box. It is natural for budgies to want a partner of the opposite sex and it offers them a more full-filling and natural life....however what is really important is that you provide your budgie with companionship (of either sex) rather than to leave them alone. They're flock creatures!

Just remove the eggs if she lays any. So don't worry to much about it as long as she is not laying to often.
