  1. Taming and Bonding
    Hey guys, by now my budgies are not afraid of my hands being in front of them from outside the cage and my male budgie sometimes even bites my fingers, i've tried to put my hand inside the cage with some seeds in my hand but they just look at it and if i move closer to them they get scared and...
  2. New Budgie Arrivals
    About a month ago I got a gift of three budgies from my uncle. I named them Hulk, Lemon, and Fern. When I got them, they were in a small black cage, so I asked to switch them to a bigger one. I put lentils, half a plum, and tomato slices in a bowl for them, and filled cups around their cage with...
  3. Taming and Bonding
    What's kickin', little chickens? I've been working on taming my budgies from the time I acquired them which was several months ago, now. It didn't take much time to see some real progress being made, however, I feel as if our progress has been at a standstill for quite some time now... Within...
  4. Taming and Bonding
    Hi! So I’ve had my girl Athena for about three months. She’s still a baby and only 5 months old. She is just starting to really open up and get more playful. She doesn’t know how to step up and won’t eat from my hand but will eat spray millet if I hold it near her. I bought her a friend almost...
  5. Taming and Bonding
    Hello everyone! I'm new to the budgie world (I'm sorry if I make any spelling mistakes as english is not my first language) Two days ago I found a lost budgie near my workplace. He seemed lost and very puffy. I asked around and no one had lost a bird in the houses around, so after a lot of...
  6. General Budgie Talk
    Hi there! Still fairly new to being a bird mom. All the budgies mentioned are young. Long story short: I bought two budgies, possibly siblings, one male & one female, bonded. I loved them so much I bought a third. New male became VERY bonded with 1st male. Got one more male in hopes that either...
  7. Taming and Bonding
    Hello, I'm extremely new to world of birds and budgies, I recently got a budgie (Charlie)*a month or two ago (9 weeks old) Everything was fine, I managed to tame him and he was extremely affectionate (Usually rolling around in my hand and cuddling), It took me a few weeks to tame him and get him...
  8. Taming and Bonding
    Hello! I've had my budgie for a year now, and nothing has changed. He won't let me come anywhere near him no matter how slow and patient I am. This mostly upsets me because I want him to have an active life. I've been persistent with him, trying every day but nothing has worked. I'm starting to...
  9. Taming and Bonding
    I have a rather interesting situation. I'm a new budgie owner, and I've had Lemon for about 6 weeks now. He's from a pet store, so not hand-tamed. In fact, he's rather afraid of hands after having his wings clipped a few weeks ago. I'm still working on the hand-taming, but I've recently realized...
  10. Taming and Bonding
    I have posted about my little Blueberry before. I got him 4 weeks ago and he became hand tame extremely fast, so fast that he surprised me. He jumped on my hand when it was in the cage on the third day. Since then he has become a lot tamer and I would say that he trusts me completely as he...
  11. Taming and Bonding
    Last week I bought a young budgie, about 2 or 3 months old from a breeder. He was not hand fed or tame. He was living in a cage outside with other budgies. I brought him home and for the first day left him alone but by the second day I started to spend time with him. He never seemed upset with...
  12. Taming and Bonding
    Hi, I bought Bert 4 weeks ago from a local pet shop, but I'm really struggling with him and feel like he's very unhappy. He's approx 9-12 weeks old (pet shop was confident about this, and he still has head bars and black eyes). I'm out at work from 9am-6pm (radio left on), but I spend every...
  13. Taming and Bonding
    I have a parakeet named Dory and I've basically spoiled him for the past year. I let him do whatever he wants whenever he wants. I left his cage Door always open gave him millet when I probably shouldn't of just because I knew he likes it. But any time I try to do anything with him not food...

  15. Budgie Behavior
    Well, I finally gave in and got my first budgie. At this point, I decided to join this forum to ask for help raising, caring, and bonding with my new family member. Already, though, I think I've made some mistakes. Upon setting up his cage and letting him in for the first time two days ago, I...

    Hi everyone! I'm new here and have a new English Budgie named Yondu. I'm not new to birds at all but I am new to English Budgies! So I have a few issues I need help with! First I've had him almost a month with no progress in trust, I sit my hand in his cage multiple times a day, offer treats and...
  17. Other Birds
    Just posting for some information as I can't find this conversation elsewhere. I have two budgies and I've just recently got a 2 year old kakariki parrot. I did the whole quarantine thing along with some cage sorting and I now have Kakariki (Mango) in a very large cage and the two budgies...

    So, I am very new to this budgie mommy life. I first got Woodstock :yellow plet: a couple of months ago. When I first got her, she just hung around her cage and wasn't too against me or my fiancé holding her. Especially when I let her out of her cage for some play time or if I had to clean her...
  19. Taming and Bonding
    I'm new to this forum and need some assistance. I got my first budgie in July, named Zeus (yellow). I ended up getting him a cage mate in September named Luna (white). They immediately connected and preened each other all the time, snuggled and whatnot. At the end of October, Zeus fell ill and...
