I think your decision to rehome the little fellow is for the best.
By the way, what have you named him?

It sounds as though you are simply not a "bird person" which is perfectly fine.
I agree with Julia and thank you for taking in the budgie and caring for him.

Budgies (and other birds) are not "easy" pets. I have two rescue (lovebirds) both of whom will bite as hard as they can given any opportunity to do so.
I, however, chose to take them in and give them a safe and loving home so I'm OK with the fact that they will never be "domesticated" the way my other birds are.
I've had Pedro and Popopy for over 5 years now and while they will come and land on me, I know to have every inch of skin covered or I will suffer a hard and painful bite!
They have bigger and stronger beaks than budgies. Poppy has drawn blood several times.

Some budgies are more timid than others, some react to stress, hormones, and changes in their environments by becoming upset, territorial, fearful or behaving in other manners some people find "unacceptable".
I believe its good that you recognize you don't want to spend months trying to bond with a bird that makes your life uncomfortable.

If you are willing to let us know where you are located, perhaps someone on the forum would be willing to take in your little one.

Best wishes in your efforts to find him a good, safe and loving forever home.

Hi there and to the forums!

Thank you for taking this little bird in and caring for him while you could.

Any bird can be worked with and their behaviors can be changed, but it takes months and months (and even years!) of hard work and patience. Often times for people who have experience with "easier" animal behaviors, like those of dogs, birds are frustrating.

I'm glad you've decided to rehome him. I think that's the best idea for both of you to be happy

If you have any questions after having a look around the forums, let us know!

Cheers

I have decided to give him to a neighbor who already has parakeets.

The way he accepted my kindness and generosity and then hold one minor mistake against me makes it impossible for me to love him. You should love your pets. I can't get an emotional attachment to him because of his behavior.

And I get it now. "That's how birds think." Fine. I can't ever love a being who thinks and feels that way, and I never want one in my home.

Thanks for the explanations. The big question I had coming here was "How can his behavior be modified" or "How can be he rehabilitated"

The resounding answer was "He can't. That's how these animals are."

Sad. I really wanted to fix his behavior. You can with most animals. I don't understand why a bird can't have their behavior modified, but there you go.

HE is gone. I'll never have to look at him again. This was one of the worst experiences of my life. I'm so glad to have him out of my house.

EDIT: Yes, he is in a safe home and I made sure of that. I'm a nice person, much as I really don't like him. In fact, after this, I like birds in general much much less. But, he is in a good home.

I'm very glad to hear you have/or will be rehoming your budgie to a neighbor who already has budgies.

I truly believe this is the best course of action and both the budgie and you will be much happier.

I'm closing this thread now as it has run its course.

Best wishes.
