Ok so I posted this in talk cockatiels already I just copied and pasted.

The dreaded quarantine
So were going to be bringing Beebee home in a few weeks and were dreading the quarantine period. Our house is open from the front door to,the kitchen and that is where our 2 budgies live. They are right in the middle of everything the only door to seperate rooms is the bathroom. So Beebee will be going upstairs in my daughters room for quarantine (our two senior cats live in our room). The problem is that we never spend any time upstairs like 97% of our day we are downstairs where aou budgies are. I want to spend as much time with her as possible but I can't spend my whole day in my 11 year old daughters room lol. For my budgies health I know it is a must though I'm just so torn though I don't know if I can deal with a month of this. Anyone have any advice maybe?



Ok tb members one person suggested putting Rickey and Lucy up in my daughters room. You all know how much progress they have made since I got them. I'm a bit worried if I put them up there they will lose a lot of that and not be as tame as they are now. Also they are a huge part of the family already and get tons of attention. This is such a tough decision to make and as we get closer to bringing Beebee home in a few weeks it is really stressing me out.

Please any thoughts, suggestions or anything would greatly be appreciated.

Is there a way that you could do some of the household chores in your daughter's room (folding laundry, mending, your daughter's homework etc.) so that you spend more time in there and are still productive? You could put a small tray table up there to chop veggies for dinner, play cards, etc.

I wouldn't encourage moving your current budgies upstairs if they've made a lot of progress. Budgies are sensitive to their surroundings and might change a bit based on their environment.

How old is Beebee? If he or she is still very young, he or she will also need time to rest. I'd say take advantage of that time to be outside the room. It's great that you're thinking of how to spend lots of time with Beebee! I'm sure that other quarantine survivors will have great ideas as well. :)

Beebee cockatiel is pretty young still she will be 10-11 weeks old when we bring he home. I forgot about the resting part. I agree about them being sensitive I would hate to mess them up by moving them.
