new bidgies

i got now budgies, they are really scared of me!
i havent seen them eat so far and it the first day.
how do i gain their trust because the previous onwers did not really play with them so they are not used to it alot.
i really want to start training them but i cant even get close to them.

New budgies help
by: Tracie

You need to feed the budgies exactly what they ate before, if possible, and slowly convert them to a healthier diet. They may not eat in front of you at first, so count out or measure a small amount of whatever you are feeding them. Later come back and measure to see if they have eaten.

Patience is the key to earning your bird's trust. Please read some of the training articles at this Parrot Training page link for help with training your bird. There are some good health articles on the page too.
