Introducing My New Budgie In The House

Recommended Posts

Hi all, well today I picked up my new budgie from the breeder I got Buzby from. He gives away his birds to people who look after them, and when I offered to pay he wouldnt accept. Below is a picture of him, best I could get due to him getting used to his surroundings and new home. He was born 23/12/09 so still only a baby yet. I know it is unoriginal, but I have called him Buzby again as I could not think of another name, as I have been a bit upset since Buzby (mark 1) passed away and did not really think about a new name or other budgie other than to be a bit excited about someone different to play with and see what personality he has.

 

When I brought him home, he sat quiet, looking around for about an 1 1/2 hrs, during which he would have a little preen, look around etc. then after about 3 hrs he started to do acrobatics around the cage, which one move I have never seen before was to literally roll on to his back and back on his feet in one smooth movement. Then he had food, and came up to top perch. So I put my finger in and he hopped on to it and sat there looking around, quiet relaxed and then he had a little preen and clean on my finger before putting him back on the perch.

 

He has been active, then sit, active again, sit, a little more food, sit. I did give him a drink of water tonight after 14 hrs, as I did not see him go for water, but he took a drink off me so I was happy. I think he is settling in okay, as 6 1/2 yrs is a long time to remember fully how the other buzby was. Thanks.

Thanks all. I can report that Buzby is settling in well, he will perch on my finger, eat and drink okay in company and is not neverous about sounds or us in the house. He is very active as he is running around the floor, jumping perch to perch to bars, climb his mirrors and for some unknown reason he is rolling on his back on the floor and either rolling fully over or on his back and cleaning his claws going mad, and he is chirping when he wants.

 

Having him and spending time with him have helped me to deal the loss of my other buzby better, as wed night and thurs I was quite a bit upset thinking about him, then having the new bird fri, over the weekend I could think about my other buzby without getting upset as much as I did, so I could focus on the good times with him more than thinking about wed evening at the vets when he passed in my father hands, who was also upset while bonding with new buzby, and watching him do funny stuff.

So great to hear. I see he has a mirror. It's often recommended not to have mirror's, as they bond with the budgie in the mirror instead of you. Doesn't always happen but can.

 

I find when I loose a pet, I often get another quite soon after. I find it helps me to greive. I used to worry people thought I was replacing them, but people greive differently... and that is how I did. We can never replace those we lose, they know it and you do too... so I say do what you need to. xx

Hey, thanks for the reply. I know that is how I feel, but it is hard for me as well, as my budgies always in the corner next to my chair, so that they are never far from me if they want to play or what not and I am near them to just talk randomly too, or to give them some attention and caring. In that corner there have been a budgie for over 20 years so when one no budgie is there, it feels very very lonely and quiet as stupid as that probably sounds, it like a big part is missing not hearing them chirp, ring a bell or do something funny and unexpected.

how lovely. hope you and Buzby have a long and enjoyable relationship. my budgie died the other week and i'd like another one soon because i don't like the quiet in my room. i'm going to do a mass clean and redecoration of my room before i look for another budgie as that would probably more sutible to a young bird.

 

good luck with buzby.
