Default Too sweet to each other

Okay so here is what ticking me off for some time some members here maybe know that a month ago i lost my female budgie Gina, she flew away escaping from the feeder...then after that i brought a new one and i call her Jill for substitute companion for my male budgie Jack.
Fast forwarding the quarantine period i noticed a huge difference from the 2.
While Gina flew i know too well that Jack won't appreciate another companion since he and Gina formed a bond and introducing another one seems off to me but surprisingly, what i noticed is at night they are side to side which with Gina i DID NOT see...she always pushing him away. Also, i see jack and jill frequently kissing and preening each other not to mention feeding too.
I am no expert but from what i am seeing is jack is more compatible to jill now rather than gina whom he had more time spent with each other? I know birds are monogamy that when they lost a partner it is hard to form again with another

Budgies do not bond for life with one given partner, they can very well have different mates throughout their lives. Depending on personality and level of compatibility the bond can be more strong or not.

It's good that Jack and Jill are such good friends.
In order to keep their hormones under control you can follow the recommendations on this link: When We Don't Want Eggs!

As aluz indicated, budgies are not monogamous.
You should be very pleased that Jack and Jill are forming a good bond with one another.

You will need to be extremely vigilant in preventing breeding.

A heartfelt plea to forum members new and old

Rearranging their cage frequently, and limiting the light they get to 8 hours a day will help tremendously.
Please be sure you never put a nest box or anything that could be used as a nesting site in their cage.

When they come into condition, limit the amount of protein in their diet at that time.

Yes im keeping it in mind the protein intakes...jill now has her half cere white with a bit blue and the other half is turning to white now...jack is moulting heavy now and she is helping him scratch those itchy feathers on his face

I see and i thought they are type of stick to one...they almost like humans too then. I can see that their bond is much stronger than when i had gina

Default Budgie bonding

I had the same situation w/my budgies. Lola & Louis were rescues that were together. Maurice was with Bertram. They loved each other. Lola & Louis were okay w/each other, but not lovey dovey. When Bertram died, I put the cages close together & noticed Lola & Maurice making love eyes at each other. So, after a while, I let Lola in Maurice's cage, and they just hit it off. Louis didn't even seem to miss Lola, even though I kept both cages close. You never know.
