Default Can't catch budgie

Flurry's claws are growing really long and are causing her problems. We have tried to catch her to clip them butit is impossible - she has never been finger tame (the first budgie I have ever had this problem with).
We have caught her in the past but she ie now worse than ever - I thinkthe vet will struggle with this little'un as well.
Any suggestions how we can catch Flurry without harming her

Welcome to the forums,

You can start by covering Flurry's cage on 3 sides (leaving front part uncovered) and reduce the lighting in the room you have her in so that she relax and prepares to nap. Then you carefully open the cage's door and with the help of a small towel/cloth gently catch your budgie.
This link may be of use: https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...ng-budgie.html

If you are unable to do this and need to take your Flurry to the vet, then you can place the travel cage at the same level as her regular cage and have both doors opened. In order to facilitate the move, you can place a few tasty treat and even a couple of her favourite toys on the travel cage.

For future reference and in order for you to be able to better check your budgie for overall health reasons, it's best that you work on finger taming her.
Even for extremely nervous and shy birds, it's possible to achieve some level of tameness and have them step up on your finger.
You can check the tips and detailed information on the stickies at the top of the Taming and Bonding section's main page.

Thanks Aluz
Will try your suggestions and fingers crossed. Mind, she can't half bite!
We've had loads of budgies over the years, but this is the first, a lovely little fun opaline, the we could never finger tame and this has been a problem since we had her.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:
https://talkbudgies.com/how-guides/17...otobucket.html

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
