Birds Freaked Out

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

this morning i placed some millet spray in my birds cage and they freaked out despite me slowly and quietly placing it in there as not to disturb or scare them

 

We have had these babies since Sunday ......is this normal for them to be so freaked out

 

 

 

i know its early days but im worried they wont ever warm to us

 

 

How long approx until a bird will calm down and be less frightened etc.

Birds are wild and not domesticated (we think they are because they are brought into our home) so what you are describing is very normal of budgies that have not been handled at a very young age and continued to be handled.

 

There is a very good article in the FAQ called Taming Your Budgie along with doing a search of the forum and you will find some great ideas and ways members have tamed their budgies.

 

Remember our hands are as big as them so it is very scary if they don't have any positive experiences with them.

So you think its a good idea to hang the millet spray inside their cage for them to taste at their own accord???

 

 

i would like them to get the taste for a certain food so when the time comes later to hand feed/get them to stand on my palm they will go for that type of feed

 

everyone writes how much budgies adore millet spray but sadly mine dont seem interested

Is this the first time you have them millet spray? If it is the budgies have never seen it before so give it time and once they slowly have some they will love it.
