Budgies new to my household

117 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  karenblodgett3261
My budgies are new to my household. The male (Sapphire) has been with me for 30 days. The female (Emmy) has been with me for two days. I let both of them out for 8 hours but they generally find their way back to their cage where they enjoy being. So I suppose it depends on the bird. I read you should give budgie time out of the cage to fly around. My make budgie came with clipped wings. The female didn't. The male is flying higher after watching the female fly around. So they learn flying tricks from each other. So I think you should allow your birds time out and also cag
E.e time. They will return to their cage when they are ready to sleep or rest.

Welcome! You have come to a great forum to learn how to give the best care possible to your tiny friend! This is literally, the best online budgie forum I've ever seen! What I love most about it is that they tell it like it is. If you're doing something contrary to best practices, you'll be told, firmly, yet kindly 🥰! The well being and happiness of the budgies is top priority! Afterall, they can't join a forum on their own 😊... although my LoVey has occasionally tapped send on various platforms before I'm done lol. As advised, read through the stickies and articles and ask if you have any questions! Looking forward to getting to know you and your sweet baby (or babies)!
