This is the weirdest thing, first time bird owner, I just got this baby albino yesterday evening. I come back from school and it's already stepping up, hand feeding, it even does weird things to get belly and back rubs.

Do I have a miracle bird or something? :0

Got it from my local pet shop, the birds are about 12 weeks old, and came from a breeder down in Edmonton. They have no background experience of being hand tamed other than the one English budgie that was within the group. Even a couple of days before I bought it I got to hold the bird and it was surprisingly calm with me, even the shopkeepers were surprised.

I think your budgie will most probably change within a week or two, this could simply be how your budgie copes with stress and new experiences. You could have a one on a million bird but it is very unlikely in all. Take things slowly and calmly, and let us know how things are going soon.

I'd like to think someone spent some time with him! I got mine from Petco and I have to think someone took time and worked with her because she was somewhat like yours....she was eager to be out of the cage the day after I got her and quite friendly. Regardless, you're very fortunate because it sounds like your budgie has an outgoing personality! Enjoy your budgie! :)

I'm with Cathy....probably best to still take it "slow and calm"! :)

Hi and :welcome: to Talk Budgies!

Budgies are sometimes submissive for a few days and as they become more comfortable and independent their behavior changes.
Don't be surprised or upset if this happens with your budgie. Please don't "rush" your budgie - be sure to take things at his pace.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about your little guy and hopefully seeing some pictures :photo: soon!!

That is what happened with me with both of my birds. I have an albino as well! :) My blue one, Kist, was already hand tamed when I got him. He was still shy but would allow me to hold him and he would sing. I think my albino one is learning after my first bird to be friendly towards me.

I would love to know how this guy is doing now a couple of weeks later!

My 2nd budgie was also all white and very young when this same thing happened to me. He became a little more independent as time went on though :)
