Bringing another budgie into house

I have a year old male budgie who has bonded very close to me. I would like to bring another baby budgie home and raise that bird to be friendly like Pepe. Is this possible. Thank you.


Hi Ronda,

If you get another bird, it needs to have its own cage. If you put it with Pepe, Pepe is likely to be aggressive because the other bird is a baby. And he will also be jealous. You can have more than on bird, but understand they are not automatically going to like each other. You don’t want them to bond anyway, or they stop being tame and just want their bird mate.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
