I have a rather interesting situation. I'm a new budgie owner, and I've had Lemon for about 6 weeks now. He's from a pet store, so not hand-tamed. In fact, he's rather afraid of hands after having his wings clipped a few weeks ago. I'm still working on the hand-taming, but I've recently realized that my budgie has seemingly started to bond to my brother's 12 week old green-cheek conure. I have seen them preen each other, as well as share food sometimes. I realized this will affect my bonding with the budgie, but it's not the reason for my concern. My brother and I both have plans to move out and into our own places within the coming months/year. I am starting to worry about the effects this separation may have on our birds, especially if they have begun to bond. My other concern is that the conure can be aggressive sometimes - there was one incident where she pulled out one of my budgie's feathers. Since then, they only get limited time together. Any insight or advice on this bonding between budgies and conures is appreciated! I just want to make sure I do what is best for the birds.
