  1. 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...
  2. 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...

    I have had my budgie for a couple months now, and have only very recently started to bond and hand tame. I will put my finger in the cage, and he will bite on my finger. He will perch himself, but continue biting. Am I skipping steps on the taming process, or is he just curious? I've made sure...
  4. 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...

    My little Charlie recently started into his 'teenage-moody' phase, and has begun biting, something he never did before. he does not protest to stepping up or coming out of his cage, but will go after my fingers in they are too close to him when he is out, like when he is sitting on my laptop and...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...

    Hi everyone Since you've all been a wealth of knowledge in the past I thought I'd better come back for some new advice! I've had Percy now for 11 days. As some of you know he was super tame when I got him, well he is he's not fazed by anything he has no problem flying and climbing onto me in...
  9. 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...
