Default Ducky doesn't like me as much?

So, she's always been pretty moody, but ever since her first moult she seems to have changed a lot. I wouldn't say she's scared of me - she just doesn't enjoy my company as much. She'll perch on me, but only when she feels like it. If I try to get her to step-up she'll just fly away & squawk at me. She's still really happy & everything, just not as bonded to me as she used to be. About a week and a half ago she wouldn't leave my side! She was like velcro...

Don't worry--she'll be back to normal soon. She's just hit her "teenage" phase, but she'll grow out of it

Just treat her like you would a human teenager--give her a little space and reestablish what you've already bonded with her, like read or talk softly to her like you used to when you first got her, and move gently when you put your hands in the cage.

Sounds like Ducky is a bit of a diva
Good luck!

Georgia , Ducky is behaving completely normal. She will be acting differently every now and then. especially being a hen. Going through molts can affect budgies hugely some seem to get through without a worry others become a little quieter or completely change in character.
When they are coming into condition they also will have a personality shift, it is part of these wonderful little birds. The best part is for you to learn all the subtle little signs and act accordingly.
Ducky will be back to the Velcro I am sure.

Georgia,

I agree with the comments made by the previous posters.
Ducky has reached her independent phase and her behavior is perfectly normal and to be expected.

Jo Ann has given you perfect advice. Just love Ducky unconditionally and give her the best life possible.
