Bubs has now been with us 3 weeks and 2 days! He has settled and is an absolute delight! He is very confident in his cage. Bubs is lively, plays with his toys and makes all sorts of sounds! Really lovely to see and hear. He happily goes outside his cage and flies around, always going in of his own accord!! Bubs is still a little wary of me and not much progress with the finger training? Would like to vary his diet too?! He has a budgie playground on the way! Not sure how to tackle that one when it arrives! Generally he seems a happy and healthy boy! Very pleased owner!

Has the photo attached?!

I'm glad your Bubs has been doing so well and already navigates the room like a pro and comes out and goes back to the cage on his own accord.

By being consistent in the training soon enough you will be seeing some progress, the advice given to you on this thread: https://talkbudgies.com/taming-bondin...-training.html combined with all the information at the Taming and Bonding section should be very useful.

As for the diet, just like with training, it's important to be persistent by offering the fresh foods on a daily basis and presenting it in different ways to see what sparks your Bubs curiosity.
Some budgies like finely chopped up veggies placed on a bowl, while others prefer big leafy greens stuck in between the cage's bars.
In order to entice your Bubs to try to eat his greens, you can sprinkle a few seeds onto them. A good starter veggie is romaine lettuce, most budgies will go for it fairly easily. Sprouting seeds is also a very good way to make your Bubs more interested in trying fresh foods.
All veggies should be thoroughly washed before being offered.
For all the detailed info, please check the information on the stickies at the top of the page on this link: Diet and Nutrition - Talk Budgies Forums

And yes, you have managed to attach the photo successfully.

Bubs looks cute and try to let the training go at Bubs pace. If you rush Bubs it might take her backwards. Good luck with the training.

It sounds as though little Bubs is settling in quite well.
The picture of him on his cage is adorable.

aluz has given you good resources to check for both taming information as well as diet.

There is great information available in the stickies throughout the forum.

Best wishes!

I'm so glad little Bubs is settling in well! He does seem to be a lively character for sure

What a cutie! Keep up the good work
