Default Not sure whether im moving too fast to bond with one of my babies

Hi Everyone, its been almost 2 days since i've decided to take a step further to see if any of my babies would eat from my hand. And yes! my light blue budgie broke the ice and had a wonderful time eating the millets in which i've offered her. But this is where my concerns begun as today, while eating the millets from my hand, she allowed me to stroke her belly and rub her head, she was slightly hestiant but continued to let me rub for maybe a min and seem to enjoy it. However, after i took my hand out of the cage and put it back in,she starts to shiver like she is frighten... im kind of torn now to whether i have pushed her too far? as the belly and head rub, she was not shivering at all...

Please give me some advise to what i may have done wrong as i dont want her to freak out bad and influence my other budgie as he is basically a hyper sensitive easily frighten bird and im using my this female budgie to influence him to be comfortable with our family as she is much calmer....

It is very hard to not want to be interactive with our budgies but we do need to learn to give them time and go at their pace.
Continue to let your blue budgie come to you and eat, keep still and talk quietly while they are eating. Don't move on till they are confident and happy to move around you. Then it is time to perhaps let them come to the door hold the millet there and see if they will come to you. Patience is your best friend.

Thanks for the advise Pretty Boy, i will remember to take baby steps.... Anyways Yah, im trying to give 5 to 10 mins of everyday to interact with them by giving them millets or fruit or anything i can get them to eat from my hand

Well, at least something wonderful came out of this week, as both of them have decided not to bicker at each other & are sharing one food bowl & they are very comfortable by the window & have begun singing & flirting with each other... So cute....
