  1. Budgie Behavior
    My budgie is suddenly biting me constantly after we got a second budgie. Will it stop? We had our budgie boy Harry for 9 months. He's the best. He constantly wants to be with us and talks 150 words. However because I'm going out more for work we decided to get a friend. I couldn't take it...
  2. Budgie Behavior
    Hi, it's been a while since I last posted, everything was peace and quiet and harmony in the Siklo household... Then Pico started behaving differently. It started with loud shrieking when he flies around, head bobbin, and then all of a sudden he's become very bitey. I'm talking, incessantly...
  3. Introductions
    Hi there, New to this forum and got a budgie less than a month ago. He is less than a year old and male. The breeder has hand-tamed them and taught him to step up. Diet is mainly seeds (what the breeder fed him but I'm looking to slowly transition into pellets), and daily veg and fruit. He is...

  5. Budgie Behavior
    Hello, I have 4 budgies, two males and two females. I've had one of the females for several years and she has always been terrified of me and I have never been able to tame her (her name is Taz which is short for the Tasmanian devil because that's what she is). A few months ago her cage mate...
  6. Budgie Behavior
    Hi, I recently got 2 hand raised budgies and they are very into biting everything in their cage. I can tell they are happy and they come up to see me when i talk to them. My problem is that they bite for no reason. I've been sitting my hand beside the cage hoping they will get used to it. When i...
  7. Budgie Behavior
    Hello! I wanted help on a particular theme, I have had Freddie for about a year and he's a generally very happy budgie, the most interactive bird I have ever had, he likes to sit on my shoulder or head or on top of the computer, in the mornings he is lovely but one of the things he likes to do...
  8. Budgie Behavior
    I got my first bird a couple of days ago and have been trying to train it to step up. Currently he won't run from my hand or nip at it when it's near him. He will allow me to pet any part of his body except his head and and closes his eyes if I stroke his belly repeatedly. I can get him to step...
  9. Training Journals
    2/14/2017 5 months old My little baby bird is five months old and while he trusts me and my co-owner/ boyfriend reasonably well we both would like him to be more friendly. He will sit on your shoulder for hours and hours or sit on the back of your computer while you work but he doesn't like...
  10. Taming and Bonding
    Hey guys! So I'm in the middle of the process of training my budgie. I got her to eat out of my hand and I am trying to get her to come on my finger now. I tried touching her gently on her feet and belly but she keeps biting. Everytime I put my hand in without food she will bite my finger really...
  11. Taming and Bonding
    Hi, I've had my budgies for almost 4 months now. I originally got them from a family who didn't have time for them, so they were without intimate human contact since they were chicks. I've sat by them for hours at a time, just singing softly or reading to them. The male (Hades) has finally...
  12. Taming and Bonding
    So I recently have acquired a budgie. He's still fairly young (under a year) but his last owner didn't get him out of that cage that often. He now bites you if you put your hands near him or the cage. These bites aren't painful but more like little nibbles. He also doesn't like leaving his cage...
