Default Baby's Growing Bond

After a year, I am finally free and ready to bond with my budgies. I have 2 budgies, Luv (2yrs old) and Baby(1yr old). Baby is more curious and outgoing as compared to Luv, so I decided to tame him first. As suggested by StarlingWings, I separated them. Transferred Baby to an older cage and put him in the bedroom. that was the quite emotional. Both of them did the 'budgie scream' to see where the other is and the screams were audible to both of them which made them scream more.
Now they have calmed down.. I just hope their separation is worth it.

Best wishes for your budgie training. I hope all goes well for you and them. Just keep the goal of having a trained budgie in mind when they start their screaming for each other.

Default First Bite!

First of all thank you all for your wishes!

After Baby seemed calm and adjusted to its new environment, I tried to feed it millet. I broke of a ball of seeds from the stick and took it near him. After hesitating, he took a bite. Then I put the seeds in the centre of my palm. Baby backed off, but couldn't control the urge for millet.
He nibbled my fingers to check if they would take his weight (he is a cautious guy)
And there he goes, a jump onto the piece of millet and it was gone within seconds. This is what he would do normally but there even would be his partner, Luv, who would fly of soon, so would Baby
I am going to do this for a few days until he jumps on my hand without a second thought. Then I would think of taking him out of the cage.
is there anyway I can do it better? I will love to hear it from you guys

Default Reunion.. Sort of

I just couldn't look at Baby sitting so still and quite so I decided to put Baby's cage next to Luv's.... And then they started chirping back like the old days!
Did I do right or I am torturing them by making them meet but not fully? What I am planning is to keep Baby's cage in the bedroom during the day and keep them together at night because throughout the day there is at least some one in the bedroom but from about 8 in the evening every one sits for dinner and to watch tv and then sleep... So from 8-10/11 its him alone.. And then in the morning Baby's back in the bedroom.

It seems like you've got a good plan started to tame them You definitely don't have to keep their cages separate all the time, it's perfectly fine to leave them in the same room and only move one cage when you want to work with them

Once a schedule is established for a while (for example, having Baby away from Luv in the morning but with him in the evenings) then they will be used to this routine

Keep up the good work and I look forward to hearing their progress!

Default Growing trust....

Thank you so much StarlingWings for relieving me.
I continue to interact with Baby now and then, talking to him and feeding him. Today when I took the piece of millet into the cage, he did not hesitate to eat. He wasn't as scared and cautious as he was yesterday also he has become a bit more active and he chirping even when he is alone.
Looks like he is getting comfortable. I'll keep you posted.
