Hi, I’m a huge fan of the channel.
My question(s) is this: For a new budgie owner, is it better to own 1 Budgie, or have 2 of them? Should you get 1 at first, bond and train with them, then introduce a second to bond and train with while providing another companion for your first bird? Or get both at the same time from the same place? I’ve seen SO many different opinions on this, and in the not-too-distant future when I’m able to get my first Budgie, I want to make sure they are happy, whether it’s with another bird friend, or not.
Thanks so much for your time,
Thank you so much <3
Budgies are social birds and thrive on companionship, so having at least 1 other budgie can provide them with a lot of social interaction and enrichment. If you are unable to spend a lot of time with your budgie or if you are away from home frequently, having a second budgie can provide them with a friend to interact with while you are away.
That being said, if you are a new budgie owner, it may be easier to start with 1 bird and bond with them before introducing a second. This allows you to focus on one bird at a time and develop a strong bond with them. Once you have established a bond with your first budgie, you can consider introducing a second budgie slowly and carefully, allowing them time to get used to each other.
