Hello everyone, I'm back with another problem!
My budgie Noodle, who I've had for a few months now, was coming along very very slowly, but was still making progress.
I put him in the big cage, with my older budgie Jojo and they get along great!
However, after about a week or so with Jojo, Noodle's taming has come to a complete halt, even gone backwards.
He is now very scared of the small piece of dowel I've been training him to 'step-up' onto.
When he used to be fairly easy to catch and put into the smaller 'taming cage', he now flies away from my hand and is only calm around me in the small cage. Noodle's fear of me seems to have come out of no where, although he still east treats from my hand. Noodle used to let me pick him up for transportation between the taming and main cage, and even would eat millet while in my hands.
I am wondering if clipping Noodle's wings so taming is easier will accentuate his new fear of me, or make it worse?
sorry for the long post, but any help or recommendations/tips are very welcome, as I am close to giving up on taming Noodle and just letting him be buddies with Jojo
