I have 2 male budgies called blue and bogey. I got blue from my father in law who couldn't cope with the noise and then brought bogey as a friend for blue. I've had them a few weeks now and they dont seem interested in coming out the cage and they dont show any interest in fruit and vegetables when i offer them.

The birds need to settle in and become accustomed to their new space, you do not need to be concerned about letting them out just yet. They see their cage as their safe space so it is natural for them to feel most secure in the cage. Are they comfortable with you or do they seem always nervous? If they have not been used to eating veggies/fruits they do not recognize them as a food source, it takes time, don't give up. What are you feeding them otherwise?

Use the spray millet as a treat and as a training tool and not part of the routine diet. If you leave a whole spray of the millet in the cage at all times the birds may just eat that, as it is like candy for them, and that would not be a well rounded diet.
