I am not sure if this counts as forcing but I have him step up on my finger then try to take him out. He usually hops off the first couple of times then lets me take him out.

Yes, you are "forcing" him to go out of the cage when he's not ready yet, and if you continue to do so, he will begin to associate stepping up with being forced to come out of the cage, and will stop stepping up.

It's important to let him come out of the cage when he's ready To help entice him outside of the cage, you can put perches on the outside of the cage, put a playgym next to the cage, or clip some millet to a perch outside the cage that he can only reach by going outside.

Good luck

My bird now comes out voluntarily and is super friendly and plays with people, but there is something he has been doing. He will stretch out his neck and open his mouth really wide if you say the same word over and over, I think he might be trying to say the word but I'm unsure. Could you tell me?

Actually, you are having great success with your new bird for only 2 days. Appears as time goes on you will have much more success with him. Just be patient, let him feel relaxed. Remember, he is new to your home and much smaller than you. Let him get comfortable and he will trust you even more.

I have actually had him for over three weeks and I was wondering what him stretching his neck and opening his mouth means.

I am not an expert, but am sure one will come along soon. Is he regurgitating anything back up? Are his feathers all puffed up? Is he lethargic? It could be a sign of sickness and may need checking out.

No, he is perfectly happy and healthy he only does it if you repeat words though.

My birdie just started nipping again but I'm not sure if its playful or not if he is on something he will reach down and nip it a couple of times, originally I thought it was playful. After awhile he started doing it to hands, it would be very light but if he wasn't told no he would keep doing it harder and harder this was a little strange so I tried putting him on my leg he continued doing this on anything. This isn't really causing a problem because he will stop if you tell him to but I just wanted to know why he is doing it. Also I observed him to see if he was scared but he looked perfectly comfortable.

I realize you are very young and prefer to ask questions rather than read the information in the Budgie Articles and Stickies.
However, for you to grow up into a good pet owner, you need to take the responsibility of doing as much research on this forum as possible.
If, after you read through ALL of the articles and stickies, you have questions then is the time to ask.

Here is and update on my bird. He has become very sweet and comes out with out trouble, all I need to do is say step up and he hops on to my hand. He eats and drinks regularly and plays with his toys for about three hours a day, I'm holding him in between 1-2 hours so I don't stress him out because I don't think he trusts me all the way yet. If he gets scared by something and flies I just say step up and he runs over, but if he is on the ground but not scared he will just stay where he is until I move close to him then he will do it. He tweets happily and tries to mimic words often. He still gets nervous around people other than me but the more he spends time with them the nicer he gets. I feel like I have made a bunch of progress.
