Default New budgie mating with finger

Hi, I am currently trying to hand tame my quarantined budgie and while doing step up the new budgie tried to mate with my hand. In the process he bit hard. I'm worried that he might be this aggressive with our other bird. Any advice

Hi! to Talk Budgies

To help discourage your budgie's urge to mate, ensure your budgie has access to lots of flight/climbing exercise.
Provide two or three swings to encourage him to keep moving and tire himself out.
Chew toys like Kabobs and other shredding toys are helpful and you should provide plenty of wood to chew--especially when he is in condition.

Reduce the number of hours of light he gets as well as the percent of protein and other foods used to bring birds into condition.
How long have you had this budgie?
How long has he been in quarantine so far?
What gender is your other budgie?
Remember quarantine needs to be observed for 45 days. If the budgie is showing aggression at the end of that period, I would not recommend introducing the two budgies.

If he seems to have calmed down at the end of the quarantine period, put the two cages near one another for several days. After that, please be sure to introduce them in neutral territory. Sometimes having two or three supervised meetings prior to moving them into one cage is advisable. Before introducing a budgie into another budgie's cage, the cage should be completely rearranged (perches, toys, food and water dishes) in order to help prevent any potential territorial issues.

If the urges don’t dissipate, take the budgie to an Avian Vet for a check-up.
Sometimes the vet will suggest a special diet or hormone injection to balance the natural hormones.
A busy bird is a happy bird, especially if you are part of the fun. Mating is a natural part of aviary life.
Teenage Budgies need to have directed activity if you do not feel comfortable observing.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

thank you for your reply he is 5 years old and we recently got him two weeks ago. He is in quarantine.previously he was with a female companion was much older and passed away. He also has been in a cage for all his life. I plan on having him as a companion to my 7 year old male budgie. I have added a swing and extra toys. He still likes to tap on my finger and still tried to mate with my fingers, but I'm hoping he will calm down

Give him time and attention but be sure to work at his pace.
Hopefully, once he settles into his new environment he'll be just fine.
