Default Help on taming a parakeet pair.

Hi I'm new to the forums as h probably already know. Basically I need some help on taming a budgie pair, I have a pair of parakeets that are bonded but they are still really used to me. I got her about a year and a half ago, I tamed her enough that she would sit with me sleep in my lap and so on. Then I got her a partner thay i never got to taming and he stayed untamed because then I had lots going on with school and never any time. This evening I got some millet, held it out, she came flying to me and eventually he did too because she was in my hand and he was brave enough to come to me. I am curious if continuing to do so will retame her and tame him? I now have lots of free time and I feel like getting to bond with them again and tame them. Any tips? Any help appreciated.

Just take it easy like with the training. Sounds like things are kind of ok now. Since they are a bonded pair, you are already off to a good start with being their friend. I was given a bonded pair of budgies several years ago, and I was never able to click with them. They only had eyes for each other, Makes a person feel sort of bad to feed and house them and pay for their vet care, and they ignore you.

It seems as if he only like s to sit on my hand only when I got millet or seeds for him. On the other hand she actually goes to me when I push my finger against her chest, but usually jumps back off. And they are definitely not scared of, just prefer to stay off of me. I let th fly out of their cage everyday as much as they like and they seem to show their aprecation by not being screw of me.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

If you work with your budgies on a regular and consistent basis, you will make progress with their training. There are a lot of good tips in the stickies in Taming and Bonding section of the forum.

I'd start by reading these:
https://talkbudgies.com/taming-bondin...-training.html

https://talkbudgies.com/taming-bondin...-training.html

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 about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

I will post a photo as soon as I get a chance. Also they don't like me holding them unless their hungry, she will go on my finger in the cage, but not outside of it unless she is hungry.

I've noticed they went to me so well yesterday, but today their not hungry and they don't even feel like going to me! They are such little peskers! They come when hungry and stay away when not! I'm worried that they will continue doing this forever.

And never tame to go without being hungry, will doing this everyday tame them that they will come when not hungry, or will continue coming only when hungry?

They are beautiful!

I don't believe they will always only come to you when they are hungry. Offering food is encouraging to be with you so hopefully they get used to you more, so as long as you're interacting with them daily and talking to them/sitting with them a lot, they'll slowly become more used to you and interested in you without needing food
