We found this budgie when it was young I guess it escaped someone's home. It is a male.
In the beginning he was more timid not so chirpy, but then we moved him to the kitchen and I also started teaching him how to come out of the cage, and eventually fly around and land on a stick.
He is now not shy or afraid anymore but rather so attached to us. But in an extreme way. He chirps so loudly for attention, you know the classic contact call. And he is determined to eat our food when any of us sit down to eat something. He just does not give up. When I keep his cage door closed he keeps trying over and over to get out so he can get to our food. Of course I feed him some when it appropriate like spinach or quinoa sometimes pasta.
He was molting a few weeks ago and seemed so quiet and inactive. Now it's like he is reborn as a little monster. It's crazy. I'm not sure what to do.
I'm afraid the chirping is going to make me lose my hearing, so I wear ear plugs sometimes.
Anyway any advice is appreciated.
What can I do to calm him down and stop focusing so much on us.
