Default How to handle hand tamed budgie

I just picked up the most beautiful little girl this morning (picture attatched). Weve named her Kira. She is 7 weeks old and hand tamed...at least for her previous family. The fuy actually walked her to my car on his finger.
Im unsure how much to handle her as i know they need time to adjust to new surroundings and people, but i also thought since she's so tame i should get her out and say hello.
And then on top of this uncertainty, i got her out this morning about three hours after i got her home and she flew to the floor right on top of my 3 yo sons heel. He shuffled backwards and stepped on her!! I thought, omg shes dead, there's no way she's ok...it all happened in a second...but it turned out he only stood on her tail feathers but they were all pulled out. Now she has a stump tail. Im so sad about it, i was already hoping she was feeling ok with her transition and then this happened. She seemed unfazed tho.
I guess my question is how can i make her the most comfortable? Leave her alone in a quiet room? Just put my hand in for a couple of weeks or continue to get her out? (In safe areas obviously, poor thing). Do you think it would have badly hurt to have her tail feathers pulled out?

Hi.

Kira is a lovely bird. I think with your hand tamed girl you should leave her in her cage for now to settle down and attempt to get her to do step up in the cage. She was hand tame at her old place but she's been moved and may need some time to adjust. Having a frightening incident as soon as she arrived may make her a little more wary so take things slowly.

I suggest reading through tips on bonding with your girl to make sure you make the right decisions in how to handle things going forward.

Hi, and to Talk Budgies!

It distresses me to hear the breeder walked Kira to your car on his finger. It is NEVER safe to have a budgie outdoors unless it is safely in a secured cage. This applies to budgies that are "tame", that have had their wings clipped, etc.

It is very unfortunate that an accident happened so soon after her arrival at your home.
Kira will grow new tail feathers when she goes through her molt.
Thank goodness that was the only injury she suffered.

I agree with Therm, you need to give Kira a few days to settle into her new home before trying to have her step-up.

Sitting by her cage and talking, singing or reading to her will help her learn to trust you. When you aren't around, playing music or the TV is a good idea as budgies associate complete silence with danger.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies so you've certainly come to the right place to learn about how to care for your beautiful little girl.

Please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

Hi there and to the forums!

You've been given great advice from Therm and FaeryBee and I can only say that I agree completely. I'm glad Kira is just fine after the accident and I'm sure with some time and patience, she'll settle in perfectly into her new home!

The breeder should not have ever let her leave without a secure cage--that is concerning to me as well

Anyway, you've come to the very best place to learn even more about these precious little birds.

Be sure to start by reading through the links provided by FaeryBee; if you have any questions afterwards, don't hesitate to ask!

Hope to see you and pretty little Kira around the forums!

Hello, your budgie's tail will grow back you were very lucky .
I also must agree never have a budgie outside sitting on your person, a cat, a bird of prey , or something frightening can happen so easily. I have had a budgie attacked through the cage bars by a hawk, sadly I had to euthanize my bird. Is your new baby's wings clipped? Let her become used to you before you let her out. Please read the links provided they will be of great help to you.
