Budgies in natural conditions live in flights and it will be boring for one budgie to live in a cage. His friend, who can replace the company of other birds, could be a person but only in the case that he spends lots of time with his feathery friend, speaks to it and lets it fly. If the bird is alone most of the time it becomes sad and very often gets sick. If you are unable to spare enough time for the pet budgie or if the family is absent for a long time, it is better to start breeding a couple of birds. Many people think that when living in a couple of budgies do not become domestic because they do not need human presence anymore.

But if your patient enough and if you have enough time you may breed budgies separately while they grow up until they become domestic and start perching on your arm and only then to bring them together into one cage.

Will anybody help you?

It can happen that on some days you can be very busy and to be unable to care about the birds It is very important someone of the family take care of them. And will it be possible for the bird to move around your home?
