Couple questions about taking in 2 more budgies. It's still not set in stone so I figured I'd get some opinions first.
My sister bought to budgies from petco. They have already passed the quarantine time so they are disease free. She isn't a terrible person, I promise! She just didn't realize how loud and messy they would be (even though I did tell her about that
) and her husband says they have to go.
Instead of tossing them to a person who wants them on craigslist or something, I maybe offered to take them in. This isn't a light decision. Hehe.
So question is, can I even take them in? I have 4... and that would mean I would have 6. Is that like crazy way too many budgies? Will my birds even accept them into their family eventually? Provision for 6 birds isn't a worry, but behavior and stress for me is. I want to make sure it wouldn't be chaos beyond what I can handle. Yes, I know it will be more messy and sound more like a bird enclosure at a zoo, but it already is messy and does sound like we are walking through the zoo.
So that won't be a huge change I suppose. But yes, introducing and accepting are huge concerns of mine. Before I take these 2 beautiful birds in, I want to make sure it is safe and wise to do so!
Also if there is anything I haven't thought about that I should, please do share! Maybe there is even a way to make sure they go to a safe and happy home, not just someone answering a craigslist add.
Thank you! And sorry for the babble.
I forgot to add, I am in the process of taming my 4 Budgies, so that would be the main stress I wound have. Taming 4 and then having 2 new ones. Oy!
