I would be too scared to use a leash on such a small bird (or any bird). Safer to get a carrier cage.

Budgies are very tiny, very clever, and also very, very wiggly. Considering you could even get a leash on your budgie, I think it would be impossible to ensure she wont just "wiggle out" in midair! To avoid any mishaps like this, I agree that a carrier cage would be better

I have to agree with Starling and Niamh....harness/leash's for budgies is a serious....
Your little baby will be much safer in a nice travel cage....

Our birds may be small, but they're some of the fastest and most acrobatic fliers out there. They're also some of the most fragile. Hitting the end of the leash when flying off in a panic would do awful physical damage, which is why I would never want to put a harness on a budgie.

Travel cages are a much better idea. The bird will be more comfortable in their own personal space where they can feel safe to sleep and be covered.
