Default Help on budgies?

Hi. I've been trying for about 4 months to tame my 2 budgies. They eat out of my hand normally, and have been for about 3 months. Whenever I try to get them to come on my hand, they screech and fly away. I've tried everything, including clicker training, which has not worked. Is there any way I can ever hand tame them?

Four months is not very long when it comes to taming/bonding. You must have a great deal of patience and work at the birds' pace.
Take a look through the stickies in the Taming and Bonding section of the forum.
It's important you take things one day at a time and enjoy the journey rather than worrying about the outcome long term.
Best wishes!

With consistency and patience, each budgie will tame at it’s own pace, and some will ultimately tame down more than others.

As mentioned above, it’s a better idea to enjoy the journey, rather than become frustrated that you’re not to your goal.

Remember too... you’re starting with an essentially wild bird, and birds are prey animals with strong instincts to flee. When a prey animal is wild, it usually does take a very long time, with much patience.

If they both eat out of your hand, I'd simply work on having them used to your hand by resting it outside of the cage without food. Then your hand moving slowly out side of the cage. Then later, you hand inside resting without moving it. Continue to progress weekly adding food reward, but don't push them, try to end a training session with positive response. Spend as much time around them as possible. They're all individuals and depending on their age and being together, 4 months is not a lot of time. Bonding is more likely attained (but not always) with individuals that a young to start. Bonding is not the same as taming.
In bonding, your bird(s) view you as part of their flock, taming is that they accept you and that you are not going to hurt them, but with some reservations. As other have said, it's a journey!
