Hi all! Sorry if this is the wrong forum, I'm at the end of my wits and made an account to ask for help on this one.
Basically, I have two budgies, Bean and Bub. Bub is the oldest (around 9/10 weeks), and Bean is still very young (around 5/6 weeks). Both are tame, but Bub does not like being handled. He'll climb upon my hand if there's millet, but he's always too busy doing other stuff to sit around and cuddle/train with me. Bean is incredibly affectionate and loves scratches/kisses/just sitting on my shoulder or in my shirt.
The problem is Bub, though. Bub has always been very into out-of-cage time, and it's gotten really, really bad. Both get around 3/4 hours out of cage time a day, which I can still manage now because I don't go to school all the time. But whenever Bub is in his cage, he will NOT sit still or shut up. He has no interest in his toys at all, just sits in front of his cage door screaming at me (actual angry screeching) or flying around frantically in his cage, which always makes me worry he'll hurt himself. His cage is big (currently only occupied by him, about 50x40x80cm), and I'm buying an even bigger one for him and Bean together, but it still makes me worry.
School starts this week, and even though it's only 2 days a week for me at the moment, he won't have as much out of cage time as he wants. His screeching and flying around in the cage gets really worrying, since he's actually angrily screeching at me a lot and I'm afraid he'll hurt himself. It's as if he won't forgive me for putting him in his cage, you know?
He's from breeders, but had a smaller cage at the breeders that he had to share with 2 others, so it's not like he's missing any previous freedom, if anything he gained a lot.
Anyone know whats going on here/how to stop him from being angry at me for not getting 24/7 out of cage time?
