Handreared Budgie - Can He Have A Mate?


Recommended Posts

Hi there, we have got a handreared male budgie that is about seven months old that we have raised from 4 days old when his mum and dad attacked the nest and killed his siblings. He was the only one that we managed to save. He is really really tame, is handled daily and speaks fluently. He's just gorgeous. We are just wondering though, can we get him a mate? He's always been inside with us in a cage, so I don't want to go to a whole lot of expense and pick him a lovely friend and find that they won't get along. Can anyone tell me what is likely to happen if I try? Any advice anyone can give would be most grateful. Many thanks.

Hello Why does he need a friend??? He's got you...

When you ask what MIGHT happen the list keeps growing.

If you buy a baby, no guarantee of sex.

They might not get on or love each other so you are ignored.

Then again, could have two loving birds & live happy ever after...B.J.

You can buy babies sexed....

 

I think its a great idea. Tame baby budgies are reasonably easy to find, Be sure to get a male, as they will get along better then a male and female :) He will still keep talking, two male budgies often chatter away to each of, and get the whole flirty eyes and head bobbing going! Your budgie would love a friend :) They are flock animals.
