You have a beautiful girl!

Generally, we don’t advise attempting to tame a budgie until it has had a chance to settle in more. Chances are, she is appearing more tame than she is, which some budgies do when they’re new. Once they get more confident in their new surroundings, many start to get more skittish. Keep in mind, budgies are prey animals, and typically take much longer to gain trust than domestic pets. It’s not uncommon for it to take months in very small increments, to see progress of being “tame”. Then some budgies, even when they’re tame and no longer afraid, will refuse to bond or create a friendship with humans. If you’re lucky, you’ll have one who does, if that’s what you wish. All are so individual. Enjoy the journey, and remember to never try and rush your budgie into something they’re not ready for. Go at her pace.

If you haven’t already, we ask that all members read the information provided in the Stickies located at the upper part of each section. They contain current information on the best practices for keeping your budgie healthy and happy.

Let us know when you decide on a name for your girl!
