Default Taming my new girl

I'm trying really hard to get her used to people. I keep her in the main room when we have lots of people around, and in my bedroom when we go to bed. Today I tried keeping my hand in the cage with food on it. She was scared at first, but after a few minutes, she walked up pretty close on a perch, just looking at the food (she REALLY wanted it, lol).

But I also have a 'helpful' 4 year old. XD I'm not sure if he's making it harder to tame her, or if it'll help by getting her more used to kids.

I think she's doing pretty good so far, though! I'm hoping to get a clicker soon. Should I wait until she's ok with hands before clicker training, or is the clicker good taming as well?

I'd get her used to your hand first and then progress to the clicker training.

Have hope and keep trying she'll eventually come on your finger. Try not feeding her for a few hours then put food on your hand. Or try feeding her in the mornings when shes hungry. This should work, mines loved millet spray that's why i eventually managed to train them. Good luck!

Also its best if you keep your 4 yr old away from budgie during training sessions, mines hate little children being close to them. Give it time and she'll get used to both of you.

Progress! She let me have my hand next to her on the perch she was on. I even got to poke her before she had enough of me XD
