Can I introduce a 7 month old budgie to a 3 year old one?

    I have a female budgie who seems lonely so I would like to get her a friend. I have looked everywhere and no one seems to be selling or giving away adult budgies. She is about 3 years old and I found someone selling their 7 month old male budgie with its cage. Is that to young to introduce to my existing bird? Will they get along?

    I would have to say that it depends on the birds. We introduced a young male to our older female and they did very well for a while. Then the male started abusing the female. I definitely wouldn't put them in the same cage right away though.
