Smile Two new boys!

Hi! I posted there before, but it was about my concerns and questions. And now I finally have budgies! They're both boys and still babies, although the yellow-turquoise one is a bit older than the blue one.

They've only been here for 1 and a half of a day, so I know they're still scared, but they've been very brave at the same time! They didn't eat or drink yet (update: they're so brave and hungry that they came down to the lower perches to eat just as I was writing this post!!), but they explored a part of the cage today and even are already starting to chatter! They're also more active when I'm not here or I'm sleeping or pretending to sleep. Oh, and they seem to enjoy music too - it makes them chatter a little bit more. Other than that, they preen and stretch a lot.

Also, they probably didn't sleep well today, since it's their first day... They've been yawning and napping for a bit. Especially now in the evening, they close their eyes and try to sleep, but instead they open their eyes for a second to look at me. I thought to maybe cover them, so they feel more secure, but no! They refuse to sleep with a cover, apparently, because:
a) they're absolutely terrified of the black cover for some reason; I know they're too scared now to sit on the bottom perches, but when I put on the black cover they panic and basically try to sit as low as they can - that's why I immediately took it off of the cage,
b) they're calm when I'm putting a white cover over their cage, but they're immediately more active when they're inside; it's like they're having a little party when I'm not looking. I uncovered them again and it turned out that they wanted to eat, but overall I think this is the best option for them? The breeder I got them from had a separate room for budgies and if I remember correctly, she didn't cover the aviaries (she had several for different age groups) or the windows, so the birds are probably used to sleeping when there's still some light? So I guess that the white one should be ok, what do you think?

And finally, a photo of my boys!

Hello Juliusz! Welcome

Your new budgies are beautiful. I do think that the lighter color cover is better. The black one is just too dark. Additionally, the room shouldn’t be pitch dark. If it is, you’ll need to use a small night light near the cage.

You should start to see your new birds settle in to their new environment over the next couple weeks. During that time, don’t attempt to try and tame them or handle them. Move slowly when servicing the cage.

Budgies, just like other pets do, should have a variety of toys (made for birds) to play with for mental stimulation. They also love swings.

We have a large amount of resources here. Please read over the Stickies and Articles. There you’ll find helpful information to get you started, and the answers to many common questions. You can find the “List of Stickies” under the Site Information, and the General Budgie Talk forum sections. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for after reading, just let us know.

Enjoy the forum!

Hello there and back to the forums!

Congratulations on your two new boys! They are adorable

Julie has given excellent advice. The lighter cover is probably better for right now, as they settle in.

I look forward to hearing how they settle in!
