Default cage shelter

Hi, I have had a look through the FAQs but cant the answer.
i know its early days (only2nd day) but Jay completely Petrified of me and he is squatting in the corner of his cage and is looking and sounding very unhappy

someone told me to help him settle in to shelter a side of the cage (aprox 1/16 of the cage) as it will seem a secure part of the cage? Is this worth doing or is it going to cause more stress for Jay.

They gave me their old cover and i tries it with ash and it seemed to work but i have seen arguments saying its good and bad. whats your opinions please

this is what they gave me ---> https://1drv.ms/i/s!Ak36iSfRjbv9gbVmYdTspEBwne_ubQ
Thanks, Alan

It's highly recommended that when bringing home a new budgie you should cover 3 sides of the cage and leave just the front of the cage open. This will help your new bird feel safer.

Take some time to read through some of the stickies on topics that will help you in settling your new budgie in.

Besides the cage cover, you can also have some music on as this will also help your budgie to feel less stressed and more comfortable. The background sound from either the radio or TV can even entice your budgie to sing.
If you haven't done so already, you can check the info on this link: https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...rd-scared.html

Best of luck with Jay!

greetings I also agree with our friends as well.those wonderful ideas will help your budgie to get relaxed and feel safer until it settles in well.music,tv,or talking with your budgie helps build trust.

Blessings and I wish you and your budgie many happy years together.

Brill, in my house the radio is on 24/7 unless i'm watching TV and i have now put some covers on the cage.
one thing i didn't make too clear in the original post is that Jay hides as soon as i enter the room. Not just when i'm near the cage. but i am in the habit of whistling as soon as i get through the front door to announce i'm home.

TBH. i might just be panicking about nothing

You've been given great advice

However, keep in mind that your darling Jay is still very new and it is perfectly normal to act scared when you walk into the room. Talk to him reassuringly often and spend as much time in his room as possible and I'm sure that soon he'll be used to you more

Keep us posted and best of luck!

To all baby steps but just covering 3 sides. When I got in Jay didn't dart into the corner and cower. he let me put some carrots and lettuce in through the food hatch on the side side, then investigate... if he is like this for a few months I will be happy because I know he feels safe in the cage

Once again, thanks for the help

Your voice is your greatest weapon....I always talk (inanely) to my birds from outside the aviary, just so they think food/cuddles are imminent.
Once he hears and gets used to your voice he will associate it with nice things and start to relax with you.
