One bird can be as much fun as 100 birds. You can train it tricks, teach it to talk, more !!! I would let the bird bond with you before you get another one.

I hate seeing her bored and depressed all day, she barely even comes out to fly now, her old cage had a mirror that she never used. I really want to get her a friend, I just need to know if it would be alright to put the new bird in the old small cage for about two weeks. My guess would be it's about 12x14x15

Also, what could I do for toys? She has 3 toys but only plays with 1, and how many toys would I need for two birds? Would it also be okay if they shared the same food/water containers or should I get them each a different one, because the cage only has the doors for one food/water container.

ok your not listening to some VERY wise people here so my question to you is why you asking questions when your not willing to listen to some very educated individuals and insist on doing THE WRONG things

Kenny - there actually is no wrong decision here. It is just some people telling you what their decision would be based on their experiences. I can understand wanting another budgie to keep yours company. Personally I think it would be alright, I have four that I got for various reasons. BUT if I had it to over again I would spend time with the first one.

What kind of toys do you have in the cage? Maybe your bird would like a different type...some birds like bells, others things they can destroy. Try moving your toys around. Sometimes my birds will totally ignore a toy, then I move it and it becomes the favorite.

Well I got a new bird, he's in a separate cage but very close to Paris. At first he was freaking out but I got him in his cage and it's all set up now. Right now he's just sitting there and I think he's tired and still confused, hopefully in 2 weeks I can take him out of this crap cage and put him in with Paris, now he's trying to figure out how to get to his food

Also do I have to wait so long to transfer him to the big cage? Can I do it in a week?

Any name ideas? He's black and blue

Quarantine should last for 30 days...ideally in separate rooms.

Best of luck in your new adventure!!!

How would putting them in separate rooms allow them to get to know each other? He gave up trying to get to his food, I think he's hungry but he's just resting now

His cage really is small, I really would like to move him to the big cage, does it have to be 30 days..?

The quarantine time period is to make sure that the new bird doesn't have any illness/disease that could possibly be contagious so your present bird will not catch it. If new bird DOES have something, you can take it to the avian vet to take care of the problem BEFORE you put them together. Normally, this period of time should last for 30 days.

There will be plenty of time for them to get to know each other after that.

His droppings have been really watery, they're a lot different from my other bird, is that just because he's young or is he sick?
