Holding Budgies

Recommended Posts

okay so i have been taming a budgie for my cousin and she is going great she is finger taming her for nearly 5 days now and she is sitting on my shoulder while i write now. But she is a pain getting her out of the cage when i try to grab her she sqwaukes? non stop. then when i finally pick her up she stops sqwauking i try holding her in the most comfortable postion.(hands over wings belly on palm or cupped hands) but even when i hold her to put her back she squawke(now she climbed to my head) she is preety tame i just wondering on how to make her more comfortable or to get her to stop squawking Or will she just stopped with more taming... i have got her another 2 weeks before i give her to my cousin.

Hi Grabbing a bird is a big NO NO...You will ruin any bond your building up. Lots of birds do not like to be held. It's a natural reaction, Your acting like a predator. Teach her to step-up & bring her out on your finger. If she doesn't want to come out try to lure her out with a treat. If she still wants to stay in, fix the door open so she can come out on her own. The fact that she sits on your shoulder even after being grabbed. Means you have a very forgiving & trainable bird.. Provided you go about it the right way....B.J.

agree the best way is to train her to leave and enter the cage on your finger.
