Grandmothers Budgie

Recommended Posts

My Grandparents are head over to Spain for a few months, and my Grandmother want me to take care of her budgie. I've take car of her budgie before when we had a very lazy cat, but now we no longer have a cat and now have a budgie. The budgie is in the house now, but in another room for quarantine. Now they are yelling to each other from different rooms. Was this the right move to make, or should I have some one else look after her budgie?

Hi the idea of quarantine is to give a new bought bird a chance to show any symptoms of any disease it may

 

have before you allow it to mix with your birds. As Granny didn't buy her bird last week, you can let them live

 

in the same room & even fly together. Yours B.J.laugh.gif

I disagree. Quarantine means another room another airspace at least 5 metres away. A bird can be a carrier of disease and live quite happily with it. Its when you mix them that trouble starts.

Leave them separate....the further away the better. Play a radio near each if you have to.

Lets agree to disagree. Quarantine must have a time limit or Budgies would become extinct. Yours, B.J.rolleyes.gif

I know my bird and my grandmother's bird do know each other. We had a few power outages and had to stay with my grandparents and they where in the same room together for a day. During the day, My grandmother's bird is in another room and mine in another. When is it bed time, I cover mine up, then bring hers in, due to the fact the room she is in has bad heating at night (got to love living in a old house). I was thinking of keeping them separated for a week, before moving my grandmother's bird into the main room for more permanent solution. Or should I keep them separated longer?

Hi As they have already been in close contact. Why not toss a coin. HEADS TOGETHER. TAILS APART.

 

If you can't make your mind up. I've done it every time I'm indecisive about anything. It works for me. Yours B.J.laugh.gif

Based on personal experience, knowing a few people who sent their budgies to live in another house while they were on vacation, they sometimes don't ever make it back home. I'd say that the stress of "visiting" can be pretty hard on them, and I would practice regular quarantine like you would with a newly purchased budgie. Separate room, separate air space, four weeks. If your Grandmother is gone longer than that, then let them be together at the end.

 

 

 

We pretty much have a responsibility on the forum here to never recommend ditching the quarantine.
