I need advice concerning my two female budgies. Sunny is 7 & Boughie is 5. I had Sunny for two years alone as a young bird who obviously was extremely shy. I assumed it was from mishandling at some point in her short life. She hid from me for almost a year in the corner of the cage, only eating when no one was looking at her. I was not ignoring her at this time, coaxing gently, using music, keeping a calm atmosphere, etc & remaining patient. When she finally emerged from her shyness, she became a bird who bites, despite every Lisa Shea method I tried to discourage this. I have gotten approx. 30 seconds of what I would call affection from this bird in the 7 years I have owned her. When she was two, I slowly introduced Boughie, a delightful, curious and outgoing budgie,who turnedout to be another female. Boughie adored Sunny. Sunny was & continues to be so mean to her, it breaks my heart. It has now been 5 years. Should I get rid of Sunny? When separated, they calltoeach other until reunited. I consider Sunny a lost cause, I feel so guilty for Boughie's suffering.
