Budgie behavior

Hi there. I have had my 2 female parakeets for 2 years now and they have always been bonded and don’t really come by me much at all. I also have a cockatiel that I’ve had for about a year and a half. They all get along but just recently my one parakeet has suddenly started flying across the room to land on me and I absolutely love it but I’m just confused as to why that suddenly just started happening. Any ideas ??


Hi Samantha,

She may just be looking for companionship other than another female bird. Or possibly the other female has been hanging out with the cockatiel? Pet birds will sometimes change who they like or start liking someone they never liked before. We can’t get into their heads to know why, they just do this sometimes.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
