Default Aria's Training Journal

Hey guys! So today makes a week I've had Aria. She's doing very good now. She eats, chirps and sings, plays on her swing, etc. She's fine with my hand in her cage to change her food and water, and overall seems comfortable in her new home and cage.

So, now for the questions. As some of you know, I have zero experience with budgies, and she's my first one. I've had cockatiels when I was younger, so she's not my first bird. That being said, I do know what I'm doing, though not sure how this species reacts to training. Does it sound like she's ready to begin training? How should I start? I've heard many different techniques, ranging from leaving your hand in her cage for a few minutes a day, before eventually using your finger to a perch, to being a bit more forceful and jumping right into the big stuff (which I would never do). Which is the best technique for budgies?

Thank you!

The next step for you to take is to put your hand in her cage palm up with a bit of seed or millet in your hand. Allow Aria to come to your hand. After a couple of days, move your hand away from the perches so she needs to step onto your hand to get the seed. Once she becomes comfortable with that, and is willing to come to your hand consistently, then you can move on to the next step.

Lots of progress made! Today she flew to the bottom of her cage, so I decided to see how she'd act. I stuck my hand in her cage and she came by to investigate by nibbling and stepping on my hand. Eventually I got her to let me hold her, so she got a few minutes of out of cage time to see how she'd do. Once she started chewing on my PlayStation cord, I decided it was time for her to go back inside. She's now super curious and looking at everything, so I'm going to see how she does tomorrow!
