    Taming 2 Budgies At Once?

    Hey! Yesterday I got two budgies, Marvin and Oliver - I like to call them Marv and Ollie. I heard it's quite hard to tame two budgies at once but I'm determined to do it. Anyone who's managed to tame two budgie at once, do you any advice/tips? How soon should I try letting them out of the cage+ how to hand train them? Thanks for any help x ☺️
  2. Hi! I have a new budgie and I have gotten him so far to step up on my finger when I have a treat between my fingers. If, on the other hand, I don't have a treat he does not step up. Most of the time, in this case, I can get my finger just under his belly, but when I try to gently push, he resists. I don't think it would be a good idea to push to hard because he will fall off the perche or escape otherwise, probably leaving him a bad memory with regard to my finger. My question: How can I get him to voluntarily step up on my finger without a treat? His wings are unclipped and he is male and just starting to molt now (so must be around 3 months old, I suppose). Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Budgies Not Taming

    I got my two budgies eleven days ago from a pet store. One, the male, is flighted and I do not wish to clip his wings, and the other, the female, has french molt and lacks the ability to fly. I've had them well over a week, and they will eat, drink, and sometimes climb around the cage. My issue is taming them, because they don't seem to be making any progress. They are fine with me being in the room, but when I talk to them or enter the room they'll tense up. Pierre, the male, has only eaten millet spray from me once, and Luna has never. When I hold millet spray out to them Luna will try to get away and jump off the perch, and Pierre won't move much but doesn't seem interested in the millet. I want to know the best training method, be it tunnel or not. Most places say that they should like millet and come to me that way in as little as a few days, but that doesn't seem to be working for me. Second, I would like them to be out of the cage, but I've been told I need to tame them first and haven't made progress with that. I have a play gym for them out of the cage, but have no way of getting them out. Help, please? Thank you!

    Taming Budgie

    Hi guys! I bought my budgie, Fred, in March 2016. He was about 4 months old when I bought him and I've tried everything to tame him and it's not working. I've tried leaving my hand in the cage 3 times a day and nothing happened. At one point I had him eating millet while I held it but he randomly stopped doing this. So I took a step back with him and there hasn't been any progress. I've searched around and tried literally everything I could find and I don't know what else to do. He plays with his toys, eats, drinks, and sings while I'm in my room with him so I know he's comfortable. He's fine with my face being near the cage talking to him and whistling (he RARELY whistles back) but he freaks out when I try to touch him. Would getting him a budgie friend make it worse? I don't know what else to do! PLEASE HELP! Thank you in advance!
