Hi Shashank,

I'm sorry to hear your little one is fearful of you. However, I completely agree with what has been stated.

I think you may be trying a bit to hard to gain trust. Even if birds are young, they aren't necessarily going to instantly bond with you. Chicks, like all other birds, do require positive interactions taken slowly, at their pace. Easier taming isn't necessarily guaranteed, it still takes work regardless of age, although it may take less time the younger the chicks are

I hope with the advice given your pair and their chicks will do fine! I'll be checking back to see how things are going, too

It's important you recognize and accept that not all budgies like to be kissed and cuddled.
Budgies are individuals, just like people and they have their own personalities.
Expecting a budgie to behave in a certain way is not realistic.

It takes time and patience to help a budgie learn to trust you.
Trying to rush it only makes the budgie frightened and less inclined to want to be with you.

Additionally, most budgies once they pass the "baby" stage, do not like to be petted or touched.
If your budgie does like to be petted, you should only ever pet his head, neck or chest area.
Stroking a budgie's back and/or tail stimulates its breeding instinct. Bonding means allowing them to choose to be with you.

You did not answer all the questions I asked.

Is this the first time you've had budgies?
Are you certain the Mother and Father are not related?
How old are the Mother and Father?
Did you have them on a conditioning diet prior to allowing them to breed?




1) yes, this is the first time with budgies
2) I don't know about their relationship, when I bought them from the pet store they were in the same cage...(both of them are blue)
3)mother and father both of them are 6-7 months old
4)no, I did not have any special diet for them, I used to feed them millet seeds, coriander leaves and tomatoes

Also I understand that not all budgies like cuddling, I don't exactly want that... I just want to have a great bond with my budgies. And since people say that you can have such bond if you start handling them when they're young...

Hello! Thanks for the reply and yes... what you say makes complete sense, I will keep this thread updated

Thanks for the reply
And when I was writing my previous thread I was handling them 5-10mins everyday... so I wanted to know if that was enough or I needed more bonding time etc
And yes all the budgies are caged together... I'll try my best to separate the kids and the parents into another cage... thank you

Budgies should never be bred until they reach at least 12 - 18 months old.

It is very important to have a strong basis of experience and basic knowledge about budgies and the best practices for their care before allowing them to breed.

Your budgies are much too young to have been bred, they may be related to one another and aren't receiving the type diet to ensure their health and well-being.

You will need to find out the sex of your baby budgies so they do not breed as well. the original budgies you bought can quite possibly be related to each other as you got them both from the same place at the same time. They must not be encouraged to breed. Remove the pot once the babies are out of the pot. The father budgie could be wanting to mate once more this can cause him to become aggressive or even kill the babies. Please try your hardest to separate them as soon as possible, keep reading the informative links provided these will help you a lot.

If you had no plans for babies or breeding, a nest box (or in your case, nest-pot) should never have been added to the cage. This is why it is important to learn about species ahead of time before acquiring them.

When We Don't Want Eggs

Many people in India (including the budgie breeders) have little knowledge of the importance of cage size, diet or the other best practices with regard to budgies' health and well-being.

By taking the time to read the information available through the forum, and passing that information to others in your country, you can help to improve the conditions of the budgies there.

One of the things that is challenging seems to be the fact there are few Avian Vets in your country.

Because of this, you will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life. We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet. With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

We will be happy to help you learn if you are willing to follow the advice offered by our staff.
