I got my budgie almost a month ago, and I am pretty sure he already trusts me(at least a little). I have tried so many methods on trying to tame him, but none work. First I tried the simple method-slowly approaching, putting hand in cage, hand feeding, then trying to get him to step up (didn't work). Then a tried the "Petland method" which is basically getting him out of his cage, putting him in a corner (sounds terrible, I know!) And trying to get him to step up. This didn't work either. I also tried things like luring him to step up with his favorite treat, sis work. I tried pushing up on his belly (like normal) and this dosnt work. I also tried pushing myfiner under his nail, he only stepped up with on foot. >_> this is getting really difficult. Any suggestions of what I can do?
Thanks!

Hey and welcome to the forum Alexis it sounds like you doing a great work, feel happy, taming a budgie can take a day or a year depending on so many different things number 1 is the personality of your little baby, but you and the budgie sounds like already have some connection, continue slow, try the millet until he or she understand that you and your hand are god things that bring delicious treats, don't force any approach and be patient don't force yourself on the budgie other wise he or she will lose trust on you and you will have to start all over again, in conclusion what I'm trying to say is treat him with love and respect and he will start trusting you and showing his love her own way, good luck and upload some pictures of the budgie :)
