I just recently got me another budgie for my little boy. Great, right? Well, at first I was planning on getting another male but I felt a really strong connection to beautiful princess, and I obviously took the angel home. (NO REGRETS.) Enoch (the male), loves her completely and it's only the third day I got her. He is way younger than her considering she is noticeably bigger and she has the black rings around her head while he doesn't so I'm pretty sure he's still too young for breeding. He does head bob in front of her and preens her. She on the other hand doesn't preen him but does sit by him, it's like she's tolerating his affectionate behavior. They don't show any hostile behavoir towards each other. So, in other words, she doesn't show any affection while he does, is the chance of breeding high or relatively low?

Reason: Excessive punctuation in title
However, you must quarantine any new bird from your current bird for at least 40 days before introducing them, and put her in a separate room and cage. The reason for this is that many budgies may carry an illness or bacteria from the pet store or breeder that could be passed on to both. Additionally, the new bird needs time to settle in alone before being introduced to another bird, to acclimate itself to the new environment so they are happy and healthy when they meet their new friend
Please separate Midori and Enoch right away; they both may be confused and call to each other but it's not too late to separate them. After the quarantine period, you can introduce them gradually, in neutral territory, and if you want to house them together, you will have to rearrange the cage totally to ensure no territorial behaviour comes up. This will help Midori feel safer and more at home after getting to know Enoch gradually.
