Default New budgie is home

After running back and forth between two pet stores today I finally picked a little friend to bring home.
This one seemed a bit calmer than the others and was acting/behaving normally. I watched a little green budgie pull his tail hard and he didn't even seem to care, just kept on playing with a toy.

I was told it's a male but I'm not so sure, its so hard to tell with the white ones. For now I've named "him" Geralt. He is not very happy about the car ride and new home.

You have a beautiful little girl! She is absolutely precious

As she settles in, be sure to keep on some calming music for her in the background and sit by her cage to read or talk to her often. This will help her feel more comfortable

Thank you I suspected female, guess I need a new name now lol. She is actually pretty calm. Once settled down after being introduced to the cage, she's just been hanging out watching everyone.

Thanks everyone. I'm very happy to have a bird again, I've missed them in my life and feeding the ravens isn't quite the same.

Your little girl is lovely!

I would suggest you replace the wooden dowel perches with natural wood perches to help prevent pressure sores on her little feet.

You can find the best types of perches to choose from the information in this link:

https://talkbudgies.com/housing-budgi...reat-cage.html

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...ure-sores.html

I'll look forward to hearing the new name you choose for your pretty little girl.

I plan on replacing the perches soon. I need to go to my moms and cut some of her maple branches for DIY stuff.
I did take most of the dowel perches to a bench sander and put a spiral like groove down the lengths to give some variation.
I also have a rope perch coming and a swing that will be altered with a natural stick.

I'll try and get better pics of her once she is awake and some of the cage, see what you all think about it. I've not put in all the toys I bought, didn't want to overwhelm her too much.

I ended up purchasing her from a big box store. The small mom & pops store I went too wasn't as clean as it used to be and they offered no health guarantee or refunds and were feeding strictly seed. At least petco had a variety of food and toys in the cage.
