Coco is so cute and congrats on the great progress with taming and bonding. When it comes to being ready for him to have out of cage time, you should never force him to come out against his will. Let him choose to come out if and when he is ready. His cage is his safe place so if you physically take him out against his will, you risk him no longer seeing his cage as safe, and you also may undo the progress you’ve made with bonding. Try putting a perch on the door of the cage and have the door open. Put his playstand just outside the cage (he may be scared if it for awhile when it first arrives so have it there all the time if possible so he gets used to it quicker) and sit by his cage and encourage him to come out by talking to him. Try millet if he likes millet. You can also just leave the cage door open, when you are free to supervise and just see if he decides to venture out. Some budgies take awhile, and others (like mine) zoom out the second the cage door is opened. Of course, safety is the most important thing. Cover all mirrors and glass doors/windows, returns off ceiling fans and lock any dogs or cats in another room. Good luck.
