Default Touchy Budgie/Naping

First Question

I've noticed that ever since i got my bird from the beginning that she makes an annoyed chirping noise when i try to touch her. At times she will let me pet her back, head or even jump on my finger. But for the most part its like shes screaming at me to get away. Has this ever happened to you? I really think she doesn't like me at times.

Second Question

Both my birds look sleepy at times but when i was looking at them today they wouldn't go into their sleeping position.But when I left they did and were sleeping after they were pretty active and chirping. How many times a day does your bird decide to take a nap? And do they always go in their sleeping position or sometimes do they get sleepy holding onto the cage. I saw that my female parakeet had one feet on the cage and was making a sleepy face. And sometimes they look sleepy without the sleeping position.

It is important to always respect your budgies' personal space.

To a budgie, you are a huge alien giant. When the budgie is feeling particularly trusting, then she may be amiable to you touching her at those times or be willing to interact with you.

You should not force your budgie to allow you to touch her when she needs her personal space. Training and bonding takes a great deal of time and patience. When you move too fast in the process or try to make the budgie conform to your wishes instead of respecting hers, you are setting yourself back each time. It has nothing to do with "liking" you. It all comes down to a matter of trust.

Every animal sleeps and/or dozes in various positions -- this is completely normal.

Thanks for the reply. I thought since I've been with her for such a long time she should have already been use to me. My male seems a lot more friendlier. But I will try to be more patient with her. I believe I've set myself back so many times that when ever she sees my finger she shouts in her own chirpy voice to get away.

Some budgies really prefer not to be touched but will interact with you on "their" terms. Two of mine are not hand tamed but will come right up to the cage when I put my face near it to talk to them. Then they chirp and sing and greatly enjoy our interactions.

Although it's difficult, with a budgie that prefers not to be touched .it's best to allow the budgie to be the one that indicates the timing and extent of your interactions. If your female isn't inclined to perch or you or interact in the same way the male does, then simply try to learn to enjoy her just the way she is with her own unique and lovable personality.

The thing I like about her is that she isn't afraid as my male to do stuff. She even likes to be upside down and i find that enjoyable to watch. But yeah, I will do my best not to get impatient and love even the side of her that doesn't want me to touch her. hehe Thanks again.

She may just be the kind of bird that doesn't like being pet. My Little Beau Pete LOVES being spoken to and sitting on my shoulder or finger. But once I start to try and pet his back or head...I have crossed the line. He will begin to squawk, squeak, and jump off me and run off. It just isn't his thing. So I find other ways to enjoy him and interact with him. My hen Ivy, loves being held and scratched under her wings. I think its just an individual thing.
