Default its all good progress

hello.
im feeling happy Jay... he's letting me stroke his chest and eating from my fingers i would get some pics but he is currently sat 1/2 on the perch and 1/2 on my little finger. i can reach my laptop but my phone is just out of reach...

i have also found favourite food, He loves celery... can someone please confirm it ok to feed it to him

is there a way to get him from 50/50 perch and finger, he is just sat there and its been over 30mins and my arm is aching. i have celery as a bribe/treat on my hand for him to collect

Thanks

30 mins hehe, no wonder your arm is aching !
Anyways, Celery is fine, has a very high water content though, so watch out for runny droppings

Try and move your hand a little further away, very slowly, he might retreat to the perch a couple of times, but eventually, he will step the other way

How wonderful for you to have success. The celery is fine keep offering other greens as well though. Perhaps you can use a pencil or other form of small perch if you are not ready to offer your finger for him to perch on. Simply slowly and gently move the pencil or finger towards his tummy and lower it down to his feet more times than not they will step up. Say step up as you do it so he becomes used to hearing this as well.

I'm so glad that little Jay is warming up to you Keep in mind that even if he likes you to pet him now, he very well may not once he gets a bit older. Budgies in general do not like being touched

Congratulations with the celery success--hopefully that will get him interested in other leafy greens soon!

Keep up the good work!

With my last budgie ash she was easy to train, when I put some perches in the cage I hade some wood dowel leftover so I wrapped it in paper parcel string and it did the job. But Jay hates it with a passion

Sorry rhe pic is upside-down but you get the idea

we did it, 1st time so it's a fantastic start... but he made a brake for it and flew into the wall and hurt his nose (can't remember it's official name) but then he sat with me

I'm glad he wanted to land on you! That for sure means he's starting to see you as a safe place to go when he's scared or wants company

I hope his cere heals soon!

the next day and i feel like im back to square one

But i'm currently sat offering my finger to him and he keeps lifting one foot onto my finger then taking it back, but when i move my finger away he grips as if to say "don't go" its lovely in a frustrating way... but i will hang in here

Don't worry, this is how he's building confidence with you. Try not to get frustrated--it takes time for him to build up the courage to fully stand on your finger again now that he knows you won't hurt him
