    Should I give my budgie away?

    So I've had my two male budgies for 9 months now, and unfortunately, I haven't been able to create a close bond with them because they're more interested in each other than me. So I was thinking that I give one of them to a close friend (who needs a companion for her budgie) and focus on the one I have left (I was also thinking of clipping his wings so he's easier to tame, but is that the right thing to do?). I think I made a big mistake getting two budgies at one time without taming one first. Should I go on with the plan?

    Your two budgies will totally miss each other.I would suggest, if you are determined to have a close bond with only one budgie, then rehome both of your budgies together and get one new budgie. Your two budgies you have now could die of a broken heart. Please do not cause that plight for them. They deserve a happy life together.

    I agree with Ellen, they are a bonded pair and they both will mourn for each other if they lost the other one.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
