So I have a cool branch that I can use as a perch but I need a screw with no head and washers/ wing nuts to make my own perch. Anyone know where I could get the screws that have no head?

----------------- edit -----------------


So I figured it out I need hanger bolts, ill head out to home Depot another day to pick up what I need

So slight setback. He was comfortable coming out of the cage that yesterday while he was playing with my daughters I took the cage outside and did a deep cleaning. Let it dry in the sun and set it all back up again. I brought the cage back inside and eventually we put him back as normal..

Now he doesn't want to come out? It's weird he doesn't respond to the millet in hand at the door and just sits on his swing perch. Been that way all last night and now today. Usually he comes out by now.

Is it because I cleaned out his cage and it's suddenly different for him? He didn't have any incident yesterday that scared him outside the cage in fact he just went back as normal.

Do we just give him a few days to re-acclimate and just chat with him at the cage? Don't know why he's suddenly not the same.

There could be any number of reasons as to to why Coco isnít coming out of his cage at the moment. The first thing to do is make sure heís not sick. Itís probably not the case, but itís important to rule it out. Heís not fluffed up? Droppings normal? Eating and drinking normally etc.? Is he moulting, or starting a moult? If so, that could be why heís choosing to stay in his cage. Have you set up his cage the same way it was before you cleaned it? If the layout is different, it will likely take him some tine to get used to it and to become comfortable again. Some days they just decide they donít feel like coming out of their cages. It might just be that he wants a day of rest.

He's eating / tweeting as per normal. Isn't fluffed up most of the time. He seems normal in every other aspect just that he's not coming to us now. This morning I placed millet in my hand at the open door and was calling to him; he started to make motions to come down to my hand so I'm thinking "oh this is good" but then he takes a detour around my hand and goes to his regular feeding bowl to eat, right beside my hand! I'm still confused

Sometimes with training and taming, it seems like we take 2 steps forward, 3 steps backwards. I would just keep talking to him and encouraging him to come out (without forcing him), and Iím pretty sure that he will come out again soon. Have you put any new perches around his cage, or anything g new beside his cage (like the play stand you ordered)? Budgies are usually extremely skittish and easily frightened so any small change can have them hiding out in their cage until they are sure the new addition wonít eat them.

I actually did add a new flat wooden perch just yesterday. You are right, he was scared and hanging out at the opposite end of the cage from the new perch the entire time. I wanted to add the new toys but I figured it was too much all at once, so I only added the perch. I have to re-read the title of my own thread, "patience is key" and remember that. I'll take it slowly

Sometimes it's best to put new items near the cage for a couple of days, then hang them on the outside of the cage for a few days to allow your budgie to become used to them.

After the budgie has become accustomed to the new item and realizes it is not a threat, then you can introduce it into the cage which, is the budgies "safe" space.

Still the same situation. He'll eat from our hands in the cage (actually he prefers my daughters to me) but he isn't coming out. I've started just leaving his door open during the day to see if he wants to come out on his own, even put the food bowl at the entrance, he'll perch on the food bowl and eat, but still not come out again. It's kinda weird.

You are just going to need to give him time and space. He obviously feels safest in his cage so respect his wishes.
