Default budgies don't come out of the cage

Hi All,
We have 3 budgies and the problem is that they don't come out of the cage recently, they prefer to stay inside. They used to come out and stayed outside all day but now it's different. What should we do?

Thanks!!

I would keep their cage open all the time, as long as you are in the room. This lets them know that it's still okay for the door to be open, and they might come out to explore like they used to.
Mallorn still has this problem, there was a period where she came out a lot, but lately she loves just sitting in her cage watching me and doesn't come out often. Something that helps is I put a perch right inside the door when the cage is open so she it tempted to perch on it, and look out into the room.

Also, I bribe her with millet or veggies
Sometimes, none of this works. Some budgies really like their cage, and it depends if they want to come out, not if you want them to. I've learned from Mallorn that my opinion really doesn't matter

Maybe they'll come out and explore!
Good luck

If they used to come out and no longer do, maybe also check if you changed anything that makes them insecure about being out. If so, they might just need some time to adjust to whatever it is before they feel bold enough to brave the wide open spaces of the room again.

In that case, it's likely that they don't want to come out yet if you're not in the room. I would give them some time to get used to only your girlfriend and then maybe they'll come out!
