Default Not leaving her cage

coco never seems to want to leave her cage. When we put our hands in she will step up but as we move she jumps to a perch or clings to the cage. Sometimes she bites at our hands. So we stop. Seems to me she’s very attached to her cage.

Any tips????

On the occasion that she comes out she Has sweet moments and loves little scratches on her cheeks. I’ll attach a photo.

Are females just more aggressive? I was hopeful my budgie would be sweet but mine seems kinda sassy. Lol.

This isnít unusual. Remember that Cocos cage is her house, her safe place. She may bite when you put your hand inside her cage because sheís defending her home, or because she simply doesnít want to interact with you at that moment. Youíre doing the right thing by following her lead and backing off when sheís telling you to. As for not wanting to come out of the cage, give her time and donít force her. If you can, put a perch on the outside of the cage, near the door to encourage her to come out. Set up a play area just outside the cage door, or on top of the cage with some toys and/or treats. Sit beside the cage when the door is open and talk to her in an excited voice and maybe jingle a bell on a toy. You said that she does come out at times so thatís a great start. Iím sure sheíll start to come out more often as she becomes more familiar with the room and gets more comfortable.

You should never try to force Coco to come out of the cage. She has to decide on her own if and when she is ready to do so.

Placing a perch on the outside of the cage and setting up a small playground on top of the cage or near it with favorite toys and a bit of millet may entice her to be a bit braver.
When you are going to be there to continually supervise her, open the cage door and let her decide if she wants to venture out.
Blingy has offered you excellent advice.

Remember that taming is all about TRUST whereas bonding is allowing the bird to choose to want to interact and be with you.

Thank you! I think you are right and I love the support. It’s like a support group for a new budgie mommy that now has a teen. Haha I wish they stayed babies longer. When I got her I had no clue what I had gotten myself into so I appreciate the feedback. Thanks so much

Coco must be happy in her home. You have made a good home for her and she is comfortable in it.
My Boyd lived for 11 years. He would sit on my hand while the hand was in his cage, but do the same as Coco and jump right off my hand when I tried to take him out.
She sounds like a very happy, content bird.

She likes her cage. It is a home she loves.I think that is natural. Can work with human women also. I have known 2 that love spending time in their homes. Both had large homes with room and were retired. I would let her enjoy her cage, but , like you, do want to friendship from my pet. You may have better luck with your budgie.
