Hi there and to the forums,

You have a beautiful boy. However, he's not 4 months old - most pet shop employees don't know how to accurately tell age (or gender). He's an adult, so it's hard to tell his age for sure, but definitely older than 7-8 months. What's his name?

Meanwhile, you've come to a great place to learn even more about the best of budgie care practices. Be sure to read through the forums' many budgie articles and "stickies" to ensure you're up to date to on everything! If you have any questions afterwards, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

Hope to see more of your boy around here!

Thanks for your helpful reply.
I’m happy to find out he’s a boy, he’s name is Cookie.
I just hope is not too old cause he’s a bit scared and as far as i know the older he is the harder it is to tame him.
Thanks again

It's important with any budgie to take it slowly and be patient~ even if he was a baby he'd still be scared at this point. In fact, at this stage it's best not to try and touch him and just let him settle in to his new home for two weeks. During this time you should sit by him and talk to him or read to him as much as possible so he gets comfortable with your presence! Once he's comfortable with you sitting next to his cage, you can start putting your hand on the outside of the cage until he's comfortable with that, etc.

Good luck with Cookie I hope to see more of him!

Hi! to Talk Budgies

It is best that you not try to touch your budgie for the first two weeks.
He needs time to settle into his new environment and become comfortable with his new surroundings.
Budgies are often submissive for the first few days simply because they are terrified.

You can cover the top and three sides of the cage to help the budgie feel more secure. Playing music for him when you aren't around will be helpful as well. Budgies perceive no noise as meaning there may be danger.

Taming and Bonding is all about helping your budgie learn to trust you and it takes a great deal of time and patience on your part.
You should never grab your budgie or force him to be touched.
To bond with your budgie, you need to build his trust in you.
He will have to learn over time that you will not hurt him, grab him and try to force him to allow you to hold him.

To build your budgie’s trust, sit by his cage and read, talk or sing quietly to him for a period of at least 10-15 minutes, 3 or 4 times day. After the 2nd or 3rd day, rest your hand on the outside of the cage when you talk to him so he'll learn that your hand is safe and will not hurt him .

After a week, rest your hand inside the cage when you talk.
Don’t make sudden moves, don’t try to touch him .
Let him get used to the idea that the hand is now in his safe place and not harming him .

After 2 weeks, begin moving your hand slowly toward your budgie. If he becomes agitated, stop moving your hand and just hold very still until he calms down. When he's comfortable with your hand near him , you can offer him a bit of millet or a few seeds. In a few more days, you can begin your taming and bonding sessions.

Always work at your budgie's pace.
Move slowly and talk reassuringly and calmly whenever you interact with him .

Most budgies once they pass the "baby" stage, do not like to be petted or touched.
If your budgie does like to be petted, you should only ever pet his head, neck or chest area.
Stroking a budgie's back and/or tail stimulates its breeding instinct. Bonding means allowing them to choose to be with you.

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.
