I'd say he's cold. I have a $7 heating pad over my bird's cage, and it seems to help. Magnus seems to be lethargic and not as active when he's cold and he will tremble a bit. I say he's more...

Sounds like he's playing!!! That's how my bird plays. He likes to make noise, and "fight" things. Sounds like he's exploring and having fun!! Especially if he's chirping, that's a good sign. I...

Sometimes when I play with my budgie's toy he goes crazy and attacks it. I always thought we were playing a game, but maybe it's something similar?

This is pretty normal. It's called a night terror, something happens like someone makes a noise or sometimes for seemingly no reason and your birds freak out and fly around and can injure themselves...

Sounds like wonderful progress! My budgie was a biter too, I always kept my finger a couple inches from her and show him the food until he jumped to me. I had to let him come to me, or else he would...

I've been really gentle with him, I never show my frustration but I am frustrated. It's just adding a ton of stress to my already incredibly stressful schedule in the next few weeks. I just keep...

My budgie is behaving similarly, I actually just posted about it. He seems really energetic and he's squawking a lot. I've tried entertaining him, he's flown around a lot, but he is still going at...

Budgie mad at me

I think my bird is mad at me. I took away his bell as others suggested, and for the past two days he's been screaming incessantly. He also has nipped me a couple times when he steps up. I just turn...

Thank you! I've removed the reflective bells from his toys, so that should help things hopefully. The mating behavior he displayed only started today, and that might've been because I had to keep...

New Bird

Hey everyone! I've had my budgie Magnus for over 4 months now, and things have been steadily getting better! We aren't bonded, and I want more than anything to be, but I also want him to be happy....

Thanks for reading! I'm glad I could help someone. Things that have helped me the most is having a training perch, and a designated place for training. I would suggest you start doing some simple...

10/21 Thought I'd update since I haven't in a while! Magnus is learning all sorts of new tricks, and he seems to enjoy his training sessions. He can fly on command, fly to perch, step up (though only...

Struggles with Feeding

Hey guys! I am a college student that lives off-campus, so I'm always in a rush in the mornings. I don't feed Magnus in the mornings because of this fact. (Of course, he has his pellets available)....

I think a good set-up to let them enjoy each other's company, while also being able to train them and bond easier, is to have them in separate cages sat by each other! You can train them separately,...

I agree with everyone. I also recommend you spend time training your budgies separately, that'll strengthen your bond immensely! Start with touch-training so that you can get them to go where you...

Budgie Regurgitating to Toys

Hey guys! I've noticed Magnus has been regurgitating to his toys, basically any bells he finds and can see his reflection in. I was wondering if I should just keep those toys in there, or if it...

10/4 As of today, Magnus can fly to me on command (though only when a training mood), can do a spin, and step-up reliably. Today, he even flew to me without me prompting! Although, honestly, he...

Thanks for your response! He's pretty confident with what I've taught him so far, I'm actually not teaching him a lot. Just step-up, touch-training, and then I'm now teaching him to fly to me on...

Throwing bird to fly

Magnus is doing well, he plays with his toys and occasionally (though definitely not as often as I'd like) visits his bird stand to play. I'm doing some really relaxed flight recall training,...

Other than food, you can either just praise them, or maybe offer them their favorite toy or a mirror. Really, find what they like then give it to them. Although in my experience, you can't go wrong...

It takes a long time, at least in my experience. I've had my (already adult) budgir for 2 1/2 months, and he's only sat on my hand and just stayed with me 3 times. My problem was with millet. What...

To stop biting, first you need to find out why he's biting. Most likely, it's out of fear. You really need to get him used to your hands and comfortable around them. My budgie also had a very hard...
