Hi I'm new here and I am sort of a first time bird owner.

I've had my male budgie for one and a half years now. He is already adapted to his surroundings. I only bought one bird bcuz I was a bit wary.

He knows how to step up and I feed him alot of fruits and veggies. He is always chirping, but I'm a bit worried.

He always shakes when he's on my finger, he gets super scared when I introduce something new and he never plays with any of the toys I make. He actually prefers staying in his cage than going outside, no problem with that but I sorta pity him and want him to be as happy as possible.

Can I get some tips for gaining the trust of a hand trained budgie? And I wanna make him more adventurous or open to new things.

Lastly can I get tips for toys he might lile and not be scared of?

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section, like I said, I'm new here. And thank you in advanced.

Me again, btw Chirpy does go out of the cage but he hates it when I touch anything besides his feet. So I am never able to pet him like most bird owners T-T

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

Some budgies do not like to be handled and the majority of adult budgies prefer not to be petted.
If he doesn't enjoy being touched then you shouldn't force him.

Chirpy likes being in his cage because, to him, it is his home and his safe place.

If he is afraid of his toys, when you get a new one, hang it outside his cage but near the cage where he can see if for a few days. Play with the toy yourself while talking to Chirpy calmly and reassuringly. Perhaps he's never learned how to actually play.

Since he's chirping and eating well, it sounds as though your budgie is happy and enjoys being a "cage-budgie". You can try simply leaving his cage door open when you are in the room to supervise him. Perhaps set up a little play tree outside the cage and put a favorite treat on it. That may entice him to come out to explore.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures of Chirpy soon!!

Hi there!

It's great to have you on the forums, welcome!

I can't add much more to what Deborah has expertly explained, but best of luck with Chirpy and I'm sure that soon he will start to open up a bit more. Feel free to post some pictures of him when you have the time!

Keep us posted and don't forget to ask about anything else you're concerned about as we're always happy to help.
