After only a couple of weeks, I am being replaced in my household! Chippy has settled right in, & seems to love my other half! He has never had a bird before, & is so interested in Chippy. And the feeling seems to be mutual! She gets so talkative when he talks to her, & gets all excited like she wants to come out of her cage & see him. He says Chippy is his girlfriend.
Chippy was previously owned by an elderly woman, & from her reactions I don't think she's ever been hand tamed to come out of her cage. Could she possibly trust him enough eventually to want to come out & visit? She's several years old, I didn't think a budgie of this age could be hand tamed.
How sweet! From your description, there is certainly the potential for Chippy to be comfortable enough to come out of the cage with a little encouragement and start to interact more closely to you and your other half especially.
It seems like Chippy is very receptive to having a closer bond and this special connection can truly grow with continued training!
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
