  1. RIP beloved birds...
  2. I would say this is normal. My first Budgie was pretty quick to tame as he was a curious bird, and he started to do this when I put my hand in the cage. I think he did this to make sure I stayed still so he could hop on, or so if I moved suddenly he could punish me (LOL). he still does it but he always jumps on and goes straight to m nails and starts 'chatting' to them its quite hilarious to watch. he also 'nibbles' my nails and tries to find stuff under them to eat.(ewwww). he could just be taking precautions or he could be just curious. hope I could help elle
  3. Hi! I encountered a problem like this... many years ago... anyway, my solution was pretty much patience. every day, for about 6 months I would just put my hand in the cage gently. I would then leave it there for 30 seconds - 1 minute. eventually, coming up to the 3 month stage, he started becoming curious and came up to my hand and nibbled my finger. this continued for a month or so, then I slowly moved my hand toward him. I always did it below him so he wouldn't be forced to jump onto my hand. by the time it was 7-8 months, whenever I put my hand in he would automatically run towards my hand and jump on it. he is now a mature budgie and nests on my hand and cleans my nails too (ewww). I have tried taking him out of the age but he just crashes into the walls and injures himself. I'm content and he is too at just a hand relationship (Lol)... Hope I could Help! Elle
