    Putting a 7 year old budgie with a 7 month old baby budgie?

    My husband and I bought a 7 month old male budgie that was hand fed from birth to increase are chances that the bird would be social to me. I am a stay at home mom so I am always home and the budgie is always in the same room as me all day. We have owned him for over 2 months and he is hand tame and comes out of the cage on his own and hangs out. My in-laws have at least a 7 year old male budgie upstairs that was hand tame when they got him but they stopped handling him years ago because they are never home so they put a girl budgie with him that use to pick on him but she passed away a couple months ago and he has been alone sense. Now my in-laws are talking about wanting to give the older budgie to me and put him with my baby budgie because my cage is much larger to hold the two of them. I feel bad that the older budgie is alone upstairs all the time but i'm concerned that it will undo all the training I had done with my budgie or if they would fight. I need advice.

    Re: Putting a 7 year old budgie with a 7 month old baby budgie?

    Hi and welcome to the community. Personally, I would keep them in their own cages. I'm afraid the older one could be aggressive with the baby budgie. They will be happy together side by side in their own cages. Budgies like their own cages, and especially one seven years old, in my view, would be very happy just to have the baby budgie cage close by. If you want to give them out of cage time, I would do it separately. Budgies can get pretty aggressive against others on occasion and they can injure another bird.
