Surprise introductions

So I've had Kuzco the lovebird for a week today and although he's super interested in the budgies, they have no interest in him and are a bit skittish about him. I've been putting the budgies in their cage when I bring Kuzco out for obvious reasons, but today, I guess I didn't latch the door tight enough and they got out. I was worried about Kuzco because lovies are so territorial, but turns out the budgies are the ones that need to be watched haha. Kuzco has ignored them almost completely, choosing to sit in his favorite places and practice step up with me... while the budgies hide on top of my bedroom door and flinch every time he moves. I haven't been able to get them back in their cage yet, but since they're staying so far from him, and he's being so good, I'm going to let them stay out and finish my training session with Kuzco. Scary morning indeed, but I'm glad it worked out safely. And I'm so mad at myself for not checking their door.

If you can keep an eye on them, I'm sure they'd be okay to let out together Just be extremely vigilant
