Default 2-3 days without interaction?

New to this forum, I tried roughly searching if there's already an thread similar to my question but found none. If there is please lead me to it.

I work in the city but I go home to my province every weekend. My family owns a few birds in the province but I'd like to keep one bird as a companion while I'm alone and away from home.

What I'm concerned of is if it's ok to leave a single budgie alone in his cage for 2-3 days with enough food and water?Or do I have to take the budgie home with me each weekend?

I used to do this but recently the buses will not allow any type of pets inside the bus and would force me to put my bird in the under carriage whenever I ride with my bird.

Please advice me if it's ok to leave a single budgie without human interaction for 2-3 days on his own.

It wouldn't be a good idea to leave a bird alone.
The human interaction wouldn't concern me but if the birds food or water became spoiled or spilt they would be left with nothing.

Have you a friend in a suitable home who could care for a bird for a few days or come to your home? If not I'm afraid to say it might be best not to get a budgie at this time.

It is definitely not advisable to leave a single budgie alone for 2-3 days on a regular weekly basis.

If you are not in a position where someone can come in to care for the bird whenever you will be away, then it is best that you do not get one at this time.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

I wouldn't recommend this. Maybe a well cared for small aquarium with 2 or three goldfish, would be better "animal company" in your situation. Fish will do fine for 2-3 days, provided they get regular attention when you're around.
