Smile Bluebird the Unwanted Budgie Progress, Taming and Photos - Ongoing

Hello All!

Hopefully below are some photos of her from Day 1 31st May to now 30th July

BB was an unwanted little scared budgie, a boy who is actually a girl...and you kindly told me she is a skyblue yellowface violet factor I believe? And she may become more green when she moults?

She was very afraid and quiet at first and barely moved or ate for a day or two. I found playing budgie sounds to her animated her and encouraged her to eat, so I did that for a few days (she came from an aviary environment).

I did lots of reading about the best ways to tame and gain her confidence. I decided on the slow and steady route, not forcing anything. On her first day she flew out of her cage in fright but was easily captured so I had a baptism of fire!

She slowly came to trust me when she realised I was not grabbing at her. From then on I could not believe how well she has done! In just a month or so she is stepping up and down, going in and out of her cage (asking to come out), singing, kissing and best of all wanting LOTS of head rubs and scratches and what I call 'hand-snuggles'!

I am so in love with her, what an amazing little creature to come so far!

Once we took her in I had always intended to get another for company, so I know she will probably go off me rather once she has her boyfriend!

Bluebird is a beautiful little girl and you've definitely made amazing progress with her in a month's time.
Thank you for sharing her pictures with us.

Please remember that if you get a friend for her you will need to quarantine for the new budgie.

Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room where your current bird(s) are housed for a period of 30-45 days.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.

Also, the dynamics between you and Bluebird will change when quarantine is over and she meets her new friend.

She is absolutely Gorgeous and such a sweetie...you may not lose her and I hope you dont...I didnt lose my Elsa when I introduced Houdini. I can see them bonding but they still include me in their flock and Im still a safe and welcome perch. I hope it will be the same for you too It can go either way

Thank you for your comments everyone. Hopefully she will still like me a little after the introductions!

I know many people have fabulous close relationships with single birds, I can totally see how! But for me seeing how excited she is hearing birds outside makes me want to give her a feathered friend.

We collected a young boy today (yes in quarantine of course). Sadly he has a rather severe wing clip and is quite hand-shy and clumsy, so I don't think he's been handled gently. He is however happy and chirpy and eating already. I will work with him in the same way for a couple of months.

He is a grey and white colour, I don't know if that has a special name? I don't have any great photos yet... but here is a peek

He came with the cage etc you can see, so I am leaving the bits in there until he's settled, I know they are not the greatest perches etc.

I'm impressed with your progress with BB. Great job! Your new little one is adorable. Don't forget to let us know his name once you've chosen one.

Congratulations on your latest arrival!
It seems your new friend is at least part English budgie, he's gorgeous!
