Deborah has given great advice

I don't see any signs of mites on her feet or beak at all! Her droppings look good as well.

I'm glad you're changing her diet, though. She will benefit from it greatly!

Oh good! Thank you! That false alarm will get my birdie care back up to speed. I need to go back to that bird store I found and either get her a new swing or replace the bells

So I have extra money coming in with taxes to finally get a larger cage for Thula! I pretty much have one picked out. I have still not managed to hand tame her, I really have not had the time to work on it. I feel awful because I know she needs the bonding, but I just haven't been able to put in the time to get through to her. With the larger cage,I have considered getting another parakeet to help with her psychological needs, do you think this is a good idea or is it too soon for me to get an additional parakeet? I do not have a separate room I can put the second one in to quarantine, but they will have seperate cages across the room until they are accustomed to each other enough to share a large cage.

Have you bought a new swing for Thula?

I would not recommend getting a second budgie.

If finances are a concern, you need to ensure you have an emergency fund set up for Thula so if she needs Avian Vet care for an illness or injury you will have the money readily available.

I'd also recommend you find an Avian Vet now in case you need one in the future. Planning ahead is better than waiting for an emergency situation.

If you are planning to work with Thula at all, getting a second budgie is only going to make things more difficult.

Additionally, there is no guarantee the two birds will get along after quarantine and you may end up needing to maintain two separate cages on on ongoing basis.

Having a second bird in the same room is not following quarantine. Many budgie illnesses are airborne and the budgies need to be in different cages, in different rooms as far away from one another as possible for a minimum of 35-45 days.

Do you really want another pet?

Be Prepared for Veterinary Care Expense

Why Quarantine?

Thank you for the information! I do have an avian vet, I took her there when I first found her for a checkup. I also do have emergency vet money that adds up to far more than a new cage, but I dont use it for anything other than animal emergencies. I will avoid the new one then, I just dont want her to get depressed. I read up on quarantine when I first started considering, just wasn't sure if it was absolutely necessary. If I do decide to get one later, I will try to convince my sister to keep the cats out of her room for a month

Are you spending at least a couple of hours a day interacting with Thula?

This can be as simple as sitting near her cage when you are studying and reading out loud to her.

Oh yes, whenever im home Im in there working on homework and I frequently twitter back and fourth with her. Shes gotten to where she will whistle back and fourth to me and Ive gotten pretty good at mimicking a parakeet 😂 Shes really good at those things, she just freaks out when I put my hand in the cage, even if completely still. I wouldnt say she is scared of me, but shes defiantly highly uneasy. I dont have much time to sit my hand in the cage
