Default Need tips

Hello all. We have 2 buggies. My daughter got her first one, coffi, in August. She just got a new budgie named Mae on Christmas eve. We had them in separate rooms for about 2 weeks and my daughter insisted on introducing them. Now that they are introduced, coffi wants nothing to do with us anymore. He's bonded with Mae. I feel that we should have kept them separated longer to strengthen the bonds with each bird seperatly first. I don't know what to do. I've never had birds as pets before. Its a first for me. Any help is appreciated.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

It would have been best for you to have ensured the quarantine period was followed for the full 45 days for the well-being of both birds.
You don't indicate how old your daughter is so I'm not sure why she's making the decisions with regard to the budgies rather than you.

Budgies generally bond more closely with a member of their own species so what is happening with Coffi and Mae is completely normal.
You can work with each budgie individually which will help them accept you.

The best advice anyone can give you is to 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.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Pictures from PhotoBucket

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi there and to the forums!

Congratulations on your new budgies

FaeryBee has given great advice and resources. Quarantine is a very important period both to ensure nobudgie gets ill from their own or a secondhand illness, as well as to build trust in the long run.

Be sure to read through the links provided to ensure you're up to date on the very best of budgie care practices! If you have any questions afterwards, don't hesitate to ask as we'd love to help.

It's great to have you with us!

Best wishes

Welcome to the forums! You have certainly come to the right place as you will find all you need to know on budgie care here.
Since you are relatively new to budgies, the information on the several articles and sticky threads will be extremely useful and of benefit to you and your budgies.

You have been given excellent advice for your current situation and I'm wishing you the best of luck with your little friends.
For all the information and tips on forming and strengthening the bond with your budgies, you can check the information on the stickies at the Taming and Bonding section's main page.

Be sure to share some pics of Coffi and Mae when you have the time!
