Thanks, Starling! I stopped playing the budgie sounds for him. He's now even quieter than before, but that's okay. Time will tell
As for behavior, everything is still going really well. I almost got a good flying picture and did get a fun one of him playing to share.

Oh my goodness I love the picture of Chimi being a little bat-bird!

Chimi is just precious and I'm totally smitten with him.

Right? He's so cute and funny! Finally starting to chatter to himself a little and he watches me very closely when I talk to him, so here's hoping he's listening for a reason

We've settled into a bit of a routine now. I sit with him and talk to him for at least an hour a day, have him do some step ups, give him treats etc during that time. I've taken him out of his cage a few times, but he's not that interested in it at the moment. To be fair, he's finally just starting to play and chirp, so, baby steps.

And his usual adorableness. I mean, just look at that face!

Chimi is a little darling and it sounds like he's settling in beautifully. Keep up the great work and please keep us posted on his progress.

Chimi went through a few days of thinking that I'm the enemy. I looked it up and found that it's a normal reaction around the three-week mark. He spent a few days hopping around and avoiding me, looking nervous and being extra flighty.
I just kept at it - talking and working with him - and he's back to being his chill Chimi self He actually ran towards my hand to step up today!
He's also doing more exploring outside of his cage, though he still doesn't want to be out for very long. He's quite the reserved little guy - something I'm still getting used to. My last budgie was super outgoing and was eager to go and do anything new. I hope Chimi will come out of his shell more as he gets a little older and more confident in himself and in me.
I've started taking him to another room to bond with him so he doesn't get anxious about going 'home' during his out-of-cage training sessions.
So far, so good

Chimi is such a handsome boy and it sounds as though you are making great progress with him!
