I'm very sorry for your loss of little Sunshine.

Before going out and getting another budgie, you need to let Snowflake have some time to mourn. Additionally, if you spend a lot of time interacting with him, it may be that he will adjust well to being a solo budgie.

If you do decide, at a later date, to get another budgie - I suggest you consider getting another male to keep Snowflake company.
Males can become best buddies and you will have no worries about discouraging breeding.

If that time comes, be sure you follow the proper quarantine procedures and then introduce the two budgies in neutral territory.

Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room where your current bird(s) are housed for a period of 30-45 days.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

Why Quarantine?

When you are ready to introduce your two budgies after the 45 day quarantine period, please be sure to introduce them in neutral territory. Sometimes having two or three supervised meetings prior to moving them into one cage is advisable. Before introducing a budgie into another budgie's cage, the cage should be completely rearranged (perches, toys, food and water dishes) in order to help prevent any potential territorial issues.

Introducing Two Budgies

Very sorry to hear about Sunshine.

Deb is right that it's best to wait a little while to see how Snowflake adjusts. As Snowflake is used to a bird friend, it will probably be a good idea to get a new friend for him eventually, but allow him some time to grieve for his friend.
As Deb suggested, you might find that he is fine alone- some birds are more adaptable than others.

just don't rush in to anything. The last thing you want is to get a new friend before Snowflake is ready.

I'm so sorry for your Sunshine's sudden passing, you have my deepest sympathies.
Time will ease the grief and hopefully soon, as your heart begins to heal you will take comfort from the memories of the good times you had with her.
I'm sending my best wishes to you and Snowflake during this challenging time.

Rest in peace, Sunshine.
