  1. Taming and Bonding
    Hello everyone! A few years ago, maybe 2 or 3, my family and I adopted 3 budgies that were rescued from a family who had young children and couldn't care for their budgies. They were very timid and scared of us, but they seemed very happy together after we bought them a very large cage with...
  2. Housing for Budgies
    hello everyone! I am the proud mama of 2 6-week old English budgies. I know post-attachment that I should have just gotten 1 at a time, but since I can't (and won't) change that now I was wondering if it would be best to put them in separate cages to make training and bonding to me easier? Would...
  3. Training Journals
    Day 1: Bert loves millet, it's very obvious. He seems very food driven and curious (tried both romaine and cucumber; a no on the cucumber). He paced back and forth and made a lot of calling chirps (loud!) to the wild birds outside once we got him in the cage (that was an ordeal). Saw him eat the...
  4. Taming and Bonding
    I've had my budgie, Haven, (female) for almost a year now. She used to be very social and let people hold her all the time. After about a month, she started pecking my finger when I held her. I looked it up and trained her out of it. Now she hates being held, and has for months. I have been...
  5. 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...
  6. Taming and Bonding
    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...
  7. 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...
  8. Other Birds
    Hi everyone, It has been 6-7 years since the last time I had a budgie or any other pet.After that long break I decided to have a cockatiel to get a brand new experience after having budgies because I have read so many positive articles about their personality being so friendly and kind of...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...

    Hello! I'm Ico, a 17 years old boy from Brasil. (i chose the black glasses icon because i thought it was funny,, sorry if it has to make sense with the actual post) Three and a half weeks ago I got two budgies, supposedly a girl and a boy: (I'm thinking maybe they are two ladies from their...
  12. New Budgie Arrivals
    Today I got a 12 week old budgie. I introduced him to my other semi-tamed budgie and they got along well. My older budgie (Pixel is around a year old) is still learning to step up and is currently getting use to handling. I was wondering what the best way to hand tame my new budgie is. Thanks...
  13. Taming and Bonding
    Hi everyone! I've been having a problem trying to get my new 8-ish month old budgie. I'm trying to get him to stop flying to the window sill. He loves standing there and looking out at the world and, as much as I love how inquisitive he is, I can't help but worry about mold. It's humid here and...

  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. Taming and Bonding
    Dio and Elsa are paired, and around 8-9 months old. I got them from Petsmart and I have them able to step up and recently got them okay with playing outside their cage. However they don't really seem okay with my hand as it takes effort to get them to step up and they scuttle away if I get too...
  18. Taming and Bonding
    Okay so this is my first post on this forum! I bought my budgie from a store almost two months ago and have been trying to tame him ever since. I only have one budgie and he is young yet. I really started the regular taming process a week ago, before that I interacted with him occasionally. I...
  19. Taming and Bonding
    Hello, I'm new here, so I do apologise if i've posted in the wrong place! This may just be me being overly anxious and paranoid, but i'd appreciate some help. I got two budgies (estimated 10-12 weeks) two days ago, and I'm really anxious as to whether I'll be able to hand tame them or not...
