Default Cuddle budgies that nibble

Lately the bebes' favourite thing to do is.... snuggle on me. I'm not allowed to move too much (so it works great if I put on a movie) and I have my arm sitting on my chest, with them perched on my forearm on my chest, just sitting or napping or preening themselves. I feel extremely lucky that both budgies would rather hang out with me than anything else when outside their cage

The other thing Lemon's been really into lately is biting my fingers and hands. Not hard or mean or agressively, but in a 'I'm curious what this is!' sort of way. I think it's called 'beaking'. I am more than willing to let her check out my hands in the hopes that she'll be less scared when I have to pick her up.

What do your budgies love to do when outside their cage?

That's really sweet, I'm glad your budgies like to spend time with you in that fashion. The gentle nibbling is their way to tell you that they accept you as part of their flock, they are in fact preening you and it's just a way for them to show affection. Keep on enjoying all the extra baby budgie cuteness!

Mine all have different preferences, some are happy to mostly fly across the room and land on their play area to chat and play with their mates, while others like to be on my shoulder or perched on my laptop while I'm working. Two out of my eight budgies like to have their heads scratched and preen me also in return, they are also my sweetest and most courageous birds, my girl Peppy and her little brother Luigi.

Aww, how cute!! They really love you, for sure!

Mallorn likes playing "Air Force Patrol" where she flies around at top speed three times while narrowly missing household objects and people's head

She also likes playing with her ping-pong ball, preening my eyelashes, and sitting and chatting.
