Default Untamed budgie stretching legs and wings

Hi all
my newly acquired rescue stretches each leg/wing and then raises both wings whenever I walk into the room. In some forums I have seen the suggestion it needs more exercise and to let it out for a bit - however no name is not tame and is fearful of my hand - he shows all the signs of having come from an aviary and not having been handled. He is also in moult and bites. He does not appear overly tired - and is very energetic knocking 6 bells out of some hanging toys whenever he can. He also rings a bell when I approach and I ring one back and he does the same etc. So he seems brave and curious to a point. How do I keep him exercised and not bored?
How should I react to his aggression?

Thanks heaps

That stretching motion where the one of the wings and foot are involved is perfectly normal and budgies will do this after having slept through the night, after taking a nap or even during a moment of idleness that is interrupted by us and the stretching happens. In this case, it's an automatic response when they see us, as they anticipate something good or exciting will happen.

You keep him exercised and not bored by providing an enriching environment for him and by having some toys in and out of the cage and by setting up playful activities.
Spending daily quality time and interacting with your budgie with the goal of establishing and solidifying the bond you have with him will also be important.

You will find all the detailed information and tips on how to form a trusting bond with your budgie by checking the stickies at the top of the Taming and Bonding section.

As for the biting, you can start with this link: https://talkbudgies.com/taming-bondin...-behavior.html

Sounds like No Name is doing fantastically!!! I work with rescue budgies and as well as all that is recommended in the taming stickies on here, I put a "treat cup" in their cage and use it frequently. No Name clearly already likes you so you are way ahead of where I start out with some of them. I do a mouth click when I drop something in the treat cup (a bit of millet or part of a nutriberry) and that helps set up an association I can use for all sorts of things later.

When our budgie does that when we walk in, we do it back, like we're mimicking him. He probably thinks we are crazy
