Default Will my budgie bond with two people?

I got a budgie that I named Ginkgo about 3 weeks ago, and I’ve been trying my best to bond with him with the time I have. Im in high school and I have extracurriculars, so many days I leave home at 7:15 and only get home at around 5. Once I get home, I spend the rest of the afternoon by his cage, talking to him and trying to bond with him. my mom has been hanging out near his cage and talking to him so he doesn’t get bored when I’m at school. I just got home from a weekend trip, and my mom told me she already got him to hop onto her finger on command! The most i’ve done is gotten him to eat millet out of my hand, and once he’s hopped onto my hand to get the millet. I’m afraid that he might only be bonding with my mom. Will budgies bond with two people at once, or do they pick one person?

I think if you put in regular time with him, and give him no reason to fear you, Ginkgo will bond with you as well as your mum. Just work slowly, at his pace and try to stick to a routine. It's best if you and your mum are both working on the same thing, rather than each doing different things with Ginkgo. That will confuse him. There are great tips on all this in the training and bonding section of the forum. You may also like to start your own training journal. Keep up the good work with your little bird and I hope you'll introduce him to us. We'd love to meet him.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Thank you for your answer! I'm glad to hear that. Of course I expect he may prefer my mom over me, but as long as he enjoys spending time with me as well then I'm happy.

I'll be sure to check the guides out!

If you put in the work, you will reap the reward. If he has a favourite toy, play with him with that toy (without scaring him). Watch for little things he enjoys then find ways to use those things to interact with him. I'm sure you'll have a great relationship with him. The key is taking it slowly and not trying to rush it.
