Taking out budgie for the first time
 
Hello!
I think one of my budgies is tamed enough to for the first time, get out of the cage and have a fly around.
I've already budgie proofed the room and I've set up some natural perches/tree stands around the room and a few toys.
I was wondering whether I should take her out today or tomorrow or on Tuesday or what?
When I first got my budgies (July 2016) , the cage was in my bedroom (the same place where I'm going to get one of them have their first flight) for a few weeks. My mum then said to move them in the living room (we live in an apartment so pretty much the living room/dining room and the kitchen are all connected) and since then, they've stayed there.
Since today I set up the playground and the natural perches etc in my bedroom, would it be alright to let one of my birds out? Or would I have to get them used to the environment because it may be too "foreign"? They did stay in my bedroom for about a few weeks though.
I can't do it like now-now because both of them are very sleepy and wants to take a nap.
Would it be alright to take her out in the room?

Will you be taking the cage to your bedroom to then allow your budgie out?
If you are planning on taking her out in the living room, chances are high she will fly around before you reach your bedroom.
Since both your budgies have previously stayed in your bedroom it's not a completely unfamiliar territory for them and given the fact you have bird proofed the room, your budgie should be fine even if she freaks out little when flying for the first time. Having a play area and even the safety of the cage will be helpful especially as she adjusts to the room and increasingly becomes more comfortable in her out of cage time adventures.

Good luck! :)

Thank you for that very helpful information!
I'll be taking the cage to my bedroom and then closing the doors (while telling everyone that the bird will be out the cage) and letting her out. :)
Right now, the cage is in the bedroom with me and they're just preening and grinding their beak happily. :D

Hello, may I ask how you are going to get het back in her cage ? Is she finger trained, will she step up?
Letting her out will cause the others to become agitated and they will want out as well. Be prepared to be in there for a while and have not commitments .
Also it is a good idea not to let her out if it is near dark or night time, budgies do not have good night vision. Please let us know how things go.

She is finger trained and she can fly towards your hands/finger that are just a few cm away.
I was thinking of having her to step up on my finger and then slowly taking her out and onto a perch that's attached to the cage outside and the same method when putting her back in.
Ah really? I'll keep that in mind. I didn't know that it would make the others agitated. I'll try to think of a way to "somehow" minimise that.
Okay, "not take her out near dark or night time", I'll make sure of that, thank you.

I wouldn't take her out of her cage. I would just leave it open and let her leave. Is that not possible because of others in the same cage???
