So, I should cover the cage for a few days with a towel? I am probably asking stupid questions, but I have no idea..and watching him/her get in a state of panic and sadness, it saddens me too..

Wanting your bird to become part of the family will take time and effort and will be a slow process. The forum has a lot of resources to help. If you find the bonding and training section of the forum and look through the sticky posts (posts that are pinned to the top of the page), you'll find a lot of tips and hints to help you with the bonding and training process.

I'm sure a towel would be fine, I have been using a piece of fabric that I was planning to make floor cushions out of lol.

Hi Billy and to the forums!

Your new bird is definitely a female She looks to be a light green, spangle budgie, although better pictures including shots of the wings would confirm that

By the darkness of her cere it's clear she's just coming into breeding condition, and by her lack of forehead bars she's definitely over six months old. I would say closer to a year, actually.

She's beautiful! Have you decided on a name for her yet?

I hope to see you around the forums and it's a great place to learn all you can about budgies The many informative articles are sure to help you with your girl. Be sure to read the stickies, or the posts at the top of each subforum out there for easy reference. If you have any questions after reading them, be sure to ask!

I'm glad you've joined us!

So you now know your budgie is a hen and she is coming into reeding condition. This means she has been through her first moult and has reached maturity. Some hens can be a little moody at this time so being new, and in condition she will definitely be feeling stressed. Covering the cage on three sides during the day helps her feel secure and safe.
Many members here also cover the cages at night this helps stopping night frights. Budgies do not have good night vision.
Start off sitting near her cage and gently talking to her reading aloud from a book is a good way to do this. Silence to a budgie is in fact a sign of danger. Letting her hear you and perhaps some music will also be good.
