Default pairing budgies

i have a 7 month old approx male budgie, who since ive owned him, has been a single bird, i would like to get him another poss female budgie, for company, but have been advised, that they may fight/attack each other, since it is best to pair budgies, from birth or thats what my friend has said to me,
so would be good to get some opinions please, this is my 1st budgie, so im still on learning curve really, i only have room for one cage, so a gradual introduction not possible really, they would have to take to each other straight away, in the same cage, any advice someone can give, i would be grateful, thanks jane xx

That's not exactly true, budgies are very social creatures and they take a preference over the company of a same species bird. If your budgie is a sweet fellow, I'm sure he will be very happy to have a new friend and will bond fast to it too.
If you do get him a friend, be sure to quarantine the newcomer and only introduce both birds after the quarantine period ends.

As aluz said budgies are very social and will typically get on fine. When considering finding a friend for your budgie you should consider his personality and the type of budgie that would best suit this. Unfortunately even then there is no guarantee that they will take an instant like to each other.

You also need to consider that to ensure the health of your current bird, any new birds should be quarantined for at least a month. This means a separate cage ideally in a different room or at least as far apart as you can get them. I have found my birds are quite happy to join the flock once they have been calling to each other for a month

Though after 7 months, I am curious as to why you are considering another bird? To be honest I would be reluctant to recommend getting another bird if you do not have room for another cage, at least, on a temporary basis.
