Default Georgie's 3rd day home. Hand Taming

Georgie has been learning to come to our hands so fast! He'll hop on our finger's and let us take him out of his cage now. We had him on the bed and he tried to get to his cage but I put a cover on it and he made a u-turn back the my bf's hand. Tomorrow we are going to start clicker training. All the info on this site has been most helpful.

It's wonderful things are going so well.

it's worth pointing out to other member who may also have a new bird, that it's rare to find birds who take to training so quickly and many will be very timid and afraid when they are first bought home.
It's recommended to leave them to settle for a couple of weeks before attempting training.

I'm pleased Georgie is coming along so well. Remember to keep the training sessions short so he doesn't get bored. I look forward to seeing how he continues to progress with you.

Wow that's amazing! Already 3 days and already out of the cage woohoo!
Like Therm said, it really is rare to find birds in training quickly and even out of the cage.
Just make sure to also give him some time to adjust to his environment just in case something happens.
Keep up with the great work! I'm excited to see another budgie to look out for!

Yes, it's true that it could take months for a budgie to get comfortable. Even though Georgie's from a pet shop, I'm sure the girls there handled the birds as much as possible for him to be so tame. Plus he's close to a year old and not a baby. We only take him out two or three times a day when he's active, and only out for ten minutes at a time. The rest of the day he's in his cage and we talk to him quite a lot. He finds my boyfriends low voice comforting and will fluff up from head to toe when he's talk too. He's also a mooch for millet and knows when he comes out he gets some. When we put him back in the cage, he comes to the door wanting back out, but we are keeping him quiet in there most the time to get him settled in.
