Oh my god, I'm so happy right now. I got two budgies around 7 months ago. I had lost all hope in taming them whatsoever. Recently I had been trying again, talking gently to them, putting my hand in the cage, and after trying daily, my blue budgie, Bubbles, finally ate millet out of my hand. I know it isn't much, but it's still progress. I'm going to continue hand feeding tiny amounts of millet to her, but what do you guys think I should do next?
Congratulations that is wonderful and a huge step forward
Your budgie is building trust in you and starting to realise that you're not so bad after all
Keep doing what you're doing you are doing wonderfully
By having regular and consistent training sessions each day, you will continue to see progress.
Budgies like routine so having a set-time each day you spend time interacting with them will be very helpful.
The links Cathy provided should be quite helpful and you can look through the other stickies in the Training and Bonding session of the forum as well.
Once they'll take millet from your hand, you can start moving the millet around and offering it such that the bird has to take a couple of steps to get it. Millet luring is one method you can use to start introducing step ups, so getting them used to coming towards you for millet is a great next step.
