Question help! Male Bugie gone mad?

Ok so I got grim 4 days ago

1st day, I got him he was all nice and let me pet on him when I got him home.

2nd day, I found out how to get him on my hand so (I know it might of been to fast for him but...) I let him out of the cage to stretch his wings he was so sweet he had no problem going back in the cage.

3rd day, I woke up and let him out for half a day but then when I put him back in to eat he went in fine then started going crazy and biting the bottom of the cage (I just change the bottom cause it was messy) then he started digging out his gravel then started going and kicking out his food (the food has a cover over it. I also had to take his ladder out cause he keep picking it up and nocking it down.

4th day (today) he stuck his head in the water bowl and trying to squeeze though the handle of the food dish and he it biting me when I don't let him out when he try to get out.

What do I do?

pic of him digging his food out of food dish.

The experts will know better, but try to calm him down. Play some soft music. Leave him close by and talk gently to him a lot. You might want to consider a food dish with no cover, so he won't feel trapped.

The initial first days he might not have had the courage to act up, but try not to worry about that. He needs time to settle. It might be fun for him to throw things around (kids throw toys out of prams all the time)...

How old is Grim?
If he's a young budgie he's likely doing it remembering his days in the nest. My boy is just over 4 months old and still digs in his food dish to sit in it.
Since he is new I would suggest leaving him in his cage and just speaking softly to him as much as possible. When we brought our boy home for about 2 weeks he would just try to find ways he could escape the cage. He needs to learn to be a solo budgie and is just scared of his new surrounding it sounds like.

Thank you for the music tip, I started playing it for and for 15 mints he was calm, but now he is back running around at the bottom of his cage and biting the bars then comes back calm again after doing that for a little bit! that is helping out a lot!

I am not sure of his age yet, I forgot to ask at petsmart when I got him (I know not very bright of me) . How long should I keep him in the cage? and Grim like's to try to be a little escape artist too when I reach my hand in the cage to fix his stuff he try's to sneak his way out by going under my arm or jumping on my arm and trying to squeeze out but when I stop him be starts biting me >_<

Hi and welcome to you and Grim
Sounds like little Grim enjoyed his taste of freedom the other day and doesn't recognize his cage as his home quite yet--it may have been a little early to let him out.
Regardless, now you'll want to limit his out of cage time for a few days, making sure he's got plenty of food, veggies, toys, etc. in his cage so he can be entertained. How big is his cage?

Other than that, I agree with Kerry about the digging. If he's still a young budgie (would need pics to know for sure ) than I agree, some budgies like the security.

Hope this helps and I also am excited to see you and darling Grim 'round the forums

He is gorgeous! Thank you for the picture, now I can imagine what he looks like, silly little boy He still is very young, you can tell because of the "baby bars" he has all the way down to his nares, and the immature cere color.

My one bird likes to destroy everything and over turn bowls. Try giving him a chew toy something he can bite and/or shred. mine like the popsicle toy at petsmart and it was only $3
