Unhappy Budgie behaving strangely.....

Hi everyone. I am a new Talk Budgies member and I have a (kind of long) question.

Soo....In August, Ernie's (my family's parakeet) little buddy Oscar died so we put a mirror in his cage so he wouldn't be lonely. I noticed that he was getting really obsessed with it, because all he would do was sit and STARE at the mirror and not really do anything else. Recently I took the mirror out and decided to pay more attention to him in the future. Immediately I discovered that if I imitated budgie chatter, he would talk back to me! But then, he got really attached to me. I wouldn't let me go ANYWHERE without making a big fuss (squawking, spilling food and water, banging cage doors). Lately I've been "training" him not to be so crazy, and he has improved, but he still does it. What is causing this behavior?

He really loves you, and sees you as his mate.

My girl does that too, actually. If I'm in the room and she's not out of her cage with me, she puts up a huge fuss, she bangs her toys and chirps loudly to try to get my attention, she also used to be rattling her doors so I had to clip those down further.

Budgies are flock-oriented birds, so if they have a bird flock or a human flock, they want to be with them often. What I've done is just ensure she knows that she will get let out when she's not screaming and throwing things (); she's calmed down a bit. However, budgies will, by nature, want to chirp loudly and flock call to you when they are bonded to you.

It's nothing to worry about. He loves you

Spend lots of time with him, and when you're unable to, ignore his racket and talk to him when he calms down.

Thank you! I feel a lot better now. I do try to ignore him when he's being noisy, and so far it seems to work just fine. LOL
