Default Budgie tame when I have food

One of my budgies, Rafiki is tame and will sit on my hand if I have treats such as millet, broccoli, and spinach however if I don't he'll run away from my hand. Is there anyway I can gain his trust?

Hi there, besides just feeding your budgie when spending quality time with him, it's important to make more of a connection and to actually use your voice to communicate with him.
Budgies respond well to verbal communication and to praise words as a reward for good behaviour. You can do this by talking to him in a calm, positive and encouraging way. Instead of offering him food, you can engage him in a playful activity by offering him a favourite toy to play with.

Good luck!

That's a good reminder, Aluz. I can get in a rut where I offer millet for a reward, then wonder why Oscar isn't as responsive to me... I've been spending more time just 'hanging out' with her, and surprise! She's more friendly. Thanks for that reminder.[/I]
