Budgie Love

I have two budgies. I've had them for three weeks. Whenever I approach their cage, they get a tense. When I put my hand in the cage to change their water/food, they scuttle away and when I try to see if they would perch on my hand or hand-feed them some food, they fly around the cage trying to get away from my hand. How do I get my budgies to not be afraid and warm up to me?

Scared Budgies

Patience is the key to training birds. You have to slowly help them see that you will not hurt them and that you respect them.

I have some articles on our Parrot Training page you can read.

Also, this site has some great Parrot Training help.
