Default Taming after 2 years!

I've got two budgies, Luv and Baby. I got Luv 2 years ago and Baby 1 year ago. I wanted to tame them but couldn't do so because of my college and classes. But now I am done with them and have lots of free time. I just wanted tips so that I tame them and they form a strong bond with me

you can try to feed them from your hand inside the cage (I am assuming they are used to your voice and presence at this point) as a start. Spray millet could be a good option, most budgies really like spray millet. Feeding from your hand, they can gain trust and don't see your hand as a threat I suggest you play music to them and talk to them it helps them relax.

Hi Dhaval!

It certainly is possible to build a strong bond with both of them, but working one-on-one with them will likely be most effective and you'll have to have a lot of patience

Starting slow, as if they were new budgies, will help them to learn to relax around your hand in the cage, etc.

You can check out some of these threads for similar suggestions that may help:

Thank you StarlingWings for those links. i am planning to separate them and tame the more friendly one. But theres a problem... i will be taming them in the bedroom so i will remove Baby(more friendly one) from the main cage and transfer him to the spare one, leaving Luv(less friendly one) in the living room, alone. is that ok? my bedroom has place only for one cage. will they be depressed? both these guys have been together for a year now. none of them have ever been out of the cage...

No, don't worry, an time away from each other is just fine That's a great plan to move them to another room so they are not distracted with one another and bond with you more one-on-one.

In time they will learn the new routine and will settle down if they initially seem upset when you separate them.
