  1. Taming and Bonding
    So, my budgie doesn't really like me if you haven't noticed from the title. I am in need of help so to speak. he doesn't draw blood or anything but nips me when I get too close and is shaking whenever I'm around. My family situation subjects him to a lot of yelling and arguing. Overall not a...
  2. Taming and Bonding
    Hi! I've been trying to tame my budgies. Nacho will happily hop onto my hand with food on it, hop on without it and he's stepped up onto my hand with and without food. I'm just going to continue this process to gain his trust. Rito is happy to eat from my hand but won't hop onto it, as whenever...
  3. Taming and Bonding
    Long version My poor Hedwig has not had the best time in his (not 100% in gender) 4 months of life. We bought him to be a friend with an older budgie who was already tamed as I thought his behaviour had changed because he was lonely (I had to change his location in the house so he wasn't...

  5. Taming and Bonding
    Dears, first of all hi! I am a new member to the forum, joined just recently. I am 23 yo from Slovenia, EU. I had a budgie a couple of years ago (for almost 9 years) who passed away because of an illness. I got him as a baby from a certified breeder in Slovenia. A couple of days ago I was on...
  6. Taming and Bonding
    I recently brought home my first budgie after visiting him in the pet store where he was hand fed for about two weeks. He seemed scared from my hand after coming home but will stand on my finger without freaking out. Today I brought him outside for maybe two minutes before he flew from my hand...
  7. Housing for Budgies
    Hey everyone! So I recently (about 2 weeks ago) got two new budgies. They're still scared of us. I was wondering how I could clean their cage? I've cleaned the bottom of the cage (I keep newspaper under the grate), their food/water bowls and their perches. However, I wanted to clean their...
  8. General Budgie Talk
    Hello I am a completely new budgie owner. I purchased two females at once and have had them for three and a half days. One named sunshine and the other cloudy. The birdies have already adjusted some to their cage and eat and use their water bowl. I've caught them eating a spray millet I've...
  9. General Budgie Talk
    Hello everyone! I just made an account here and it would be extremely appreciated if I could receive some advice. I recently purchased a budgie from a local pet store. The lady there said that the budgie I had purchased was approximately seven months old, and had her wings clipped. I named her...
  10. Taming and Bonding
    Every time my budgie steps up onto my hand he almost instantly steps back down to his perch, and sometimes (most of the time) he will just run away from my hand, he eats seed and millet out of my hand but he just wants to stay on his perch when he steps up, its getting frustrating I have had for...

  12. General Budgie Talk
    Hi all, I am a brand new budgie owner and animal lover in general. I did a lot of research and reading, and brought home my new budgie 4 days ago. I think I'm doing all the right things to help him adjust. He seems to be eating, and will stretch out and preen a bit...but he's so quiet! And...
  13. General Budgie Talk
    Yesterday I bought a baby budgie. The people at the pet store said he was 2 months old. When we brought him home, he remained still and quiet for about 8 hours, however, after that he started jumping and flying around the cage frantically. Then he repeatedly tried opening the cage door to...
  14. Your Budgie's Health
    Hello from Madrid, where I'm stuck at home with the flu! :( Not wanting to neglect Sammy, I let him out to fly a bit. Well, he just had a surreal interaction with our throw pillows! He got a nail stuck in the fabric while crawling and started trying to fly. I immediately picked him and the...
