Default Holly and Rio's progress!

So I've had Holly (yellow) about 7 weeks now, and Rio almost 6 weeks.

It's been quite hard to earn Holly's trust but I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere with her and yesterday, for the first time, I managed to get her to step onto my hand! (With a bit of help from Rio and some millet.)

Rio on the other hand has been an absolute gem since about a week after I brought him home and he'll step up most of the time, today he actually came to me for the first time to clean my hair for me which was cute.

They're getting on really well and are happiest when they're sat on top of their cages together looking through the window at whatever's going on outside.

Aww, Holly and Rio is such an adorable pair and seems very closely bonded. Thanks for sharing their photos and looking forward to many more

Holly and Rio are gorgeous! It would seem that they are very close with each other for Holly to follow Rio in trusting your hand like that! Can't wait for more pictures!

I love your photos. My Rigby is so scared, he won't readily step up, even for millet. I like it that Rio is helping Holly to be more confident!
By the way, I'd like to look out your window, too... looks lovely where you live (I love England.. only been there twice, but would love to return. We were in Manchester only for a short while).

Thank you everyone, they've bonded really quickly and I'll be getting them a big cage after my birthday in a couple of weeks so they can take the next big step and move in together.

It is a lovely view out of their window, plenty of wildlife for them to see too living in the countryside.

Rio and Holly make such a lovely pair, I'm glad things have been going well in terms of taming and you have such a sweet little helper in your budgie boy!

Rachael,

The pictures of Holly and Rio are wonderful!
You're making very good progress with both of them.

I'll be looking forward to seeing lots more pictures of these little cuties.
