Budgie Pacing

Recommended Posts

Hello

I hope someone can help me.It’s in regard to a budgie I bought last week, privately.

The budgie is about 5 weeks old and male. For the first 2 days he was very quiet, but in the last few days he paces his cage most of the time. He bits the bars. He is eating very well and generally looks healthy and bright. He has toys to amuse himself with.

I have managed to get him onto my hand and eat from my palm, but when the seed has finished he then tries to bite me. He is very comfortable with my hand comes right upto my face through the bars when I talk to him

Can you explain this behaviour his constant pacing behaviour.

Thanks

This sounds like "jail-break" behaviour, usually birds who have had free flight are then caged do this. At five weeks it's unusual for this to happen. If your sure of it's age then I would suggest handling your bird calmly and often until it gets used to the cage.
