I Dont Know What To Try?!

Recommended Posts

Hi there, :o

 

I have a problem training my budgie. When I put my finger up to his belly gently, He flies all over the cage. I have tried leaving him and then returning to him later to give him a rest but he chirps very loudly and I don't want to scare him :D

He bites my finger but I let him because i thought that it would show that I am in charge and i am not scared of him.

I want to train him to do all sorts of things but i can't because i need help :bliss:

 

Please help me, :)

Hi and welcome :o

 

We have a great article written by Elly in our FAQ section on taming. it may help.

But also your budgie isnt a baby so it may be a little harder if he has had no training before now.

Addding another budgie to the cage will affect training a budgie............its a whole lot harder now.

Budgies can be tame as a kitten, but when they reach the adolescent age they get to be real stinkers and like little wild Indians. I have one that's at that age. He was finger-tamed and sweet, talking to me all the time...........in English and budgie-speak. I rehomed 4 budgies for him to have a flock. He's the wildest of the whole group now, but is also the dominant male of the group even though he's the smallest and youngest of the group. When he's on a perch close to edge of the cage, I can go right up to him and look him in the eye, and he looks back at me while he's eating or tearing up a shred toy. He knows the bars are between us and doesn't bother him at all for me to be within an inch of his face. If the door's open and I try to get close to him, from his shrieks as he flies off (showing off for the others I think), you'd think I was trying to kill him. The others look at him like he's nutz. He's just being a typical adolescent hoodlum. :yes: Edited by eve
