Default My Tweetie

Hi all. This is Tweetie. I have few questions on him but I'm new here so didn't know where to ask. So wanted to ask about his sex and mutation. Also I let him out of cage early as he would flop inside first few days trying to escape so I let him out in living room because was worried he is not happy closed in cage. He doesn't eat much or maybe when I don't look I need to take him on finger and put in food container then he eats but when he is out he wouldn't come to his cage and eat himself. Please advice if I'm doing the right thing here letting him be outside. I only got him 5 days ago.

You need to add a picture so we can see Tweetie more clearly as currently, we only can see him with your profile picture.
Someone can then identify the sex and mutation.

When you bring a budgie home, it will be unsettled. some rarely move, others pace up and down.
You need to leave Tweetie in his cage to settle down. He should be left in his cage, with three sides covered over for two weeks without you trying to touch him.

Make sure his food pot is beside his favourite perch. You should be able to tell if he is eating because of the seed hulls that he leaves behind. Budgies don't eat a lot of food anyway.

I suggest that you leave Tweetie to settle in and start exploring the forum as you seem to be very new to budgies.
There is a lot of information on here for you to learn that will help make the process of Tweetie settling down with you a lot better.

Ok so shall I put him back to cage and leave him be there after I let him out? He seems happy on top of a curtain pole and he is chirping and cleaning himself.

I've answered your question with regard to Tweety's gender in your other thread.
He is a beautiful male.
One of our mutations experts will advise on his mutation when they are on-line.
In the future, please do not post the same questions in multiple areas of the forum.

It is always best to research how to care for an animal before bringing it home.
In your introductory thread,
https://talkbudgies.com/introductions...-mutation.html

I've given you many links to information you need to read carefully to learn about how to givhttps://talkbudgies.com/introductions/391945-please-help-gender-mutation.htmle your new budgie the best possible care.

Your budgie should remain in his cage for the next two week period.

Taming and Bonding is all about helping your budgie learn to trust you.
Building TRUST takes time and patience.
You should never grab your budgie or force him to be touched.
To bond with your budgie, you need to build his trust in you slowly over time.
Tweety will have to learn that you will not hurt him, grab him and try to force him to allow you to hold him.

To build your budgie’s trust, sit by his cage and read, talk or sing quietly to him for a period of at least 10-15 minutes, 3 or 4 times day. After the 2nd or 3rd day, rest your hand on the outside of the cage when you talk to him so he'll learn that your hand is safe and will not hurt him .

After a week, rest your hand inside the cage when you talk.
Don’t make sudden moves, don’t try to touch him .
Let his get used to the idea that the hand is now in his safe place and not harming him .

After 2 weeks, begin moving your hand slowly toward your budgie. If he becomes agitated, stop moving your hand and just hold very still until he calms down. When he's comfortable with your hand near him , you can offer him a bit of millet or a few seeds. In a few more days, you can begin your taming and bonding sessions.

Always work at your budgie's pace.
Move slowly and talk reassuringly and calmly whenever you interact with him .

Most budgies once they pass the "baby" stage, do not like to be petted or touched.
If your budgie does like to be petted, you should only ever pet his head, neck or chest area.
Stroking a budgie's back and/or tail stimulates its breeding instinct. Bonding means allowing them to choose to be with you.

Hi there and to Talk Budgies!

You've received the best advice from FaeryBee and Therm. It's important to give him a few weeks to settle in. During this time, you should still sit with him often, read to him, etc. to help him get more used to you.

Be sure to look through the links provided above, which include the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

Keep us posted on how things go, and I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful baby boy!

Cheers!

It is ok to let your bird out of the cage if it is possible he will return to the cage without much trouble. Birds know where the food is, inside the cage. So you do not have to overtry to get the bird back in the cage. Wanting to eat and just wanting to be back in his cage, my birds do that by thenselves. Your birds will probably also do it.
