I already have a parakeet and I've had him for 5-6 months now since I found him and he really loves me and trust me.....he still is kind of getting used to being out and on his tree. But I was also thinking sometime in the future, I want another parakeet but this one is going to be way younger than Blu because at PetSmart they have almost newly hatched parakeets and they have not white in there eye whatsoever but I just want some peoples advice. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

In my opinion, all budgies should have a budgies friend after they are fully tame. I think, as you said, you should wait until Blu is completely used to being out of his cage just because. But I think Blu could most definitly use another budgie friend and so could you! smile It will take much less time to tame your new keet, most likely, because s/he will learn from Blu.

Every bird is different. If you spend a lot of time with him it probably won't take as long. Before you plan to get another bird you might want to discuss how you will take care of vet bills and check ups. When you get a young parakeet there is always a chance that it will turn out to be a female. If the bird you have now is male then there are vet bills for checkups when the new one gets to breeding age. Also if both are female they sometimes will not get along that well and may have to be in separate cages. There is also the problem of egg binding which can be a problem without proper vet care. It is always a good idea to read up on the basic care of budgies on lisa Shea forums and get a good book or two before you enlarge your flock.
