I've had my baby budgie for a week now, Ruby isn't tamed. Even though i'm sitting next to him, he will climb to the top of the cage and stubbornly try to squeeze through the bars, his head will squeeze through but he cant get out, im worried he might injure himself.

I've never had a bird before so im not sure if this is normal behaviour.
He also goes a bit crazy and flies around his cage. Whats a normal behaviour for a new baby budgie? Is it normalfor him to go from 3-4 days quiet and still to a bird who flies around his cage trying to escape?

Hi guys :D while im waiting till i find the right cage i think i've found the solution for now with the escaping, i'm not sure if its right but its having a positive affect. After posting on here, the next day i found Ruby on top of his cage! I panicked as he started flying around but calmed down later on realising he wasn't flying close to the cieling and he would sit down on my bed, so i thought i'd let him fly around a bit, i opened the top part of my cage and managed to get him on there.
So i've been doing this for 3 days, and i haven't seem him really trying to escape but in the morning i Would talk to him and take care of him, and if im off to school i'd cover his cage with a blanket amd let quiet soothing music play in the background. When id come back i'd take of the blanket, let him get used to me, then take him out hise cage. He steps up to my finger now which is also progress, but flies away if i move to much :D
Around 5.00 he starts to look tired (puffed up and eyes shutting) so i kind of get him back into his cage without scaring him too much.

My dad will order a new cage soon so hoping This will be okay for Ruby for now :)

Please let me know your guys opinion on this.

I really thank Deborah for those links :D it really helps me to see roughly how the cage bars and the cage size should look :) i'm really picky with my cages, but we are looking everyday on online stores, as i live in london so its really hard to find a good petstore near here.
I make sure to close windows and doors, as i've heard of circumstances when the window is left open and the bird flies away :(
Once again Thanks Aluz and Deborah for the cage links :)
