Just wanted to share this adorable story of Ziggy and Kai. I got Ziggy from a breeder first, after three years of living with my pionus, Dash (RIP). Ziggy and Dash got along, but after a little bit of having Ziggy, he started to show signs of loneliness and after watching him for a bit, I decided he could use a friend. I was completely prepared for the second budgie to not like Ziggy, I bought a large flight cage with all the toys and perches the second bird would need if they did not end up liking each other. Kai joined the flock in 2014, I got him from the same breeder Ziggy is from. Kai was about six months younger than Ziggy, so not a huge age difference, but enough for Ziggy to be pretty mature already and Kai to be a fledgling. After Kai's quarantine period was over, I began to introduce the two, but I wanted to take it slow. The birds had other ideas. The moment they saw each other, they flew straight to the same perch and cuddled up next to each other. Love at first sight!
