New Budgie

Recommended Posts

Guest ian

Got casper on friday,he's very young and very quiet at the mo, he has had a little sqwarking session this morning,and while we have been out today he has had a bit to eat, he seems to sit in the same place all the time, he does not mind me or my partner rubbing his belly,trying to get him to sit on my finger in his cage he has once but when i put my finger to him and try push his belly he just sits there, al takes time i guess, here is a picture of him, will get some more soon,

 

cheers ian

Welcome!! You'll learn lots here. Your budgie looks like a cutie. Every budgie is different. Some will finger tame sooner than others. There is great information on the site about taming. Looking forward to hearing more about Casper.

:( Hello to you and your feathered friend, let him be his first couple of days so he gets used to his new home, glad he is eating. If you are unsure, you can always put seeds on the floor or a tiny container of water until he gets used to the official containers. :ausb:

Welcome to you and Casper. I'm sorry to tell you this but he isn't that young at all. I would guess any where from 6 months at the youngest. This doesn't mean he can't be a great pet to you and your family he just might take longer to tame and train.

He is very sweet, just take time with him he is in a new place just taken away from the only family he has every known. Imagine how you may feel, lonely, sad, and very quiet. But that can and will change with you spending the quality of time he needs. My Pretty was very quiet and he really still isn't that vocal but he has his moments, we have had him for 7 months now and he is starting to break out of his shell more and more :). There is allot to learn here so enjoy.

Hi Ian & welcome

Casper is very cute. Yes, I would give him a few days to settle in. And then try training. I would think he would be pretty easy.

Good luck and keep us posted!

:P Good that Casper is getting the hang of things. :wub:

 

had his door open but he wont come out, so got him out on his perch then he flew round, he likes to sit on the monopoly box and the curtin rail, hes a little bugger to get back in,i can get him to sit on my finger but get him right to his door and he flys off,

 

Will he eventuly come out of his own accord and go back in any tips on how to get him to do this,

 

cheers ian+sarah

:P Sometimes they will react better to perches than fingers (don't know why but they do). Good Luck and try the perch again, better that then chasing them all over. :wub:
