Do I go about it like a normal taming? Put my hand by them, then try to step up? then take them out of cage to tame them? should i do it one on one? with two babies at once? Is it too late for them to be very tame? They all cry/try to bite when I handle them, even though I've handled them pretty much daily. The oldest babies are 4 1/2 weeks old, and just now learning to fly. Should I do the step up method? or do I take them out of the cage then try to tame them when theyre not with their family?

Thanks for any advice, I tried looking for tips on how to tame a baby budgie but didn't find anything different than normal taming advice.

Jubilee,

It is best to work with each baby individually outside of the cage.

Gently and carefully pick up the baby and take it into a bird safe area. You can begin using the step-up training with each one individually giving a small bite of millet as positive reinforcement.

Take a look at these two threads:

Working with each one of them regularly and consistently will garner the best results.
