  1. Taming and Bonding
    I am wondering what to do next with my budgie's training. I have had it for a month and a bit. He lets me pat him on the chest and back and he will get on my finger willingly. He is quite familiar to his surroundings and chirps a lot. Anybody know what I should do next?
  2. Taming and Bonding
    My budgie will get on my finger and stay on it but if I move my finger a bit away from his/her perch (idk gender yet), he/her jumps of and goes back to the perch. Is this because I haven't trained it enough or is it scared? I've been training/taming my budgie for 3 weeks now.
  3. Taming and Bonding
    Hi, I've had my pet budgie (Bart) for around 4 months now. When he was younger, I did my best to try and tame him by slowly introducing myself to him and managed to get him onto my hand a couple of times, and even onto my friend's hand (he did so willingly, climbing from finger to finger). But...

    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...

    This thread is partially for me to keep track, partially so I can get some advice. Just learned that Bowie is a female bird but I've gotten so used to thinking of him as male I'm going to stick with he/him Bowie is over a year old (I assume he's almost 2 but I can't be sure) and he's not even...

    I had two male budgies and one unfortunately and suddenly passed away the other day. The other male has gotten quiet but seems alright based on his eating habits. He's not hand trained and the death of the other made me realize that I wanted to bond with him more. I'm planning to get him a new...

    Hello!! I have about four different budgies and I have four good sized cages for each of them. I bought them from Petco, and they refused to be tamed. I have had them for months, and despite doing everything I could find on the internet, nothing works. I have tried: speaking in a soothing...

    Hello all. 3 months ago i got my first two budgies, Kiwi and Blue. They are both male and about 5 months old. I have been offering them millet and seed mix in my hand till this day but they still fear my hand and fly away. Occasionally they will come and stand on it when i have food but they are...

    hello! two of my budgies are a bit older... they are three. I could not tame them when they were young for many reasons. since most birds have to be young to be tamed and such now that they are older can I still tame them? when they were younger they knew the little bit they sat on my finger let...
  10. 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...
  11. Taming and Bonding
    So I bought 2 budgies for my 21st birthday back in October. I don’t drive so when I got them from the pet store I had to take a taxi, then a bus and then another taxi and then walk down the street to my house. That was probably the worst conditions from the start because all vehicles had loud...
