Caboose is on a distinguished road
Default New Budgie!

Hello everyone! I have a new addition to my family. His name is Caboose and he's 3 months old. I just got him yesterday so he is still very scared. He has just been staring at me and perching in one place most of the day. He started eating and drinking recently. He chirps only when I play other budgie noises. I'm still unsure if I should be playing those noises to help him calm down or if it's actually putting more stress on him. I also have a blanket covering 3 sides of his cage. I have his cage really close to my bed so he can just watch me and be with me all day. Since I will not be working for the next two months we will be spending all day everyday together. This is the best picture I could get of him.

Congratulations on your latest arrival!
Little Caboose is such a precious baby boy!
If he appears to be very agitated and looking to see where the "budgie friends" are when you play the budgie sounds, you can instead play relaxing nature sounds or even plain music from the radio. The background noise from the TV can also be helpful and it doesn't necessarily have to be music, it can be a random programme. When my flock has out of cage time/training/therapy I always have the TV on and it's mostly on the VH1 channel.
To help Caboose to settle in, you can also cover his cage on 3 sides (leaving the front part open).

It's great that you will be able to devote your time in getting to know little Caboose and working on establishing and solidifying a trusting bond!

I'm wishing you the best of luck with your new budgie boy and if you haven't done so already, you can check the stickies at the Taming and Bonding section, the information and tips found there may be helpful to you and Caboose.

Ah, he's so adorable!

Talking to him in a nice calming voice will be great too, and will be a small step towards bonding with him and training him.

Ohh, he is absolutely beautiful! I love his df violet colouring and his sweet expression.

Congratulations on bringing stunning Caboose home and I'm sure he'll settle down soon!

We hope to see more of him around the forums!

Congratulations on your new baby boy, he's just too cute!
My Kiwi was the sane when I brought him home and I felt like he gets stressed from budgie singing sound so I just put on radio and it worked for us. On 3rd day he was chirping along with music. I leave radio on almost all day long for the background sound

Congratulations on your new baby budgie! He is very handsome. I agree with the others, my budgie Eros started to show some stress over the other budgie sounds being played (frantically looking around to find the budgies and screeching) so we have since switched to music instead or the TV. He is less stressed and chirps right along most times.
