Thanks, but yes shes a budgie, ive had her for about 4 days now, she seems to be getting used to it because my hand can get closer to her before she moves away, thanks for that guide.

Scared parakeet
by: Tracie

Please read some of the bird training articles on our Parrot Training page for help in developing a relationship of trust with your bird.

I don't know if you have a budgie or other parakeet, but budgies have to be worked with on a daily basis in my experience. We have actually purchased hand fed budgies that were completely hand tame that became aggressive when we didn't hold them for a few days. (Two different budgies on two different occasions.) They were my daughters birds, and due to her busy life and lack of taking responsibility, they eventually just became birds that learned to talk but not enjoy human company.

I say the above, just so you understand that training your bird will not only take a lot of time now, but that you will have to continue this for the rest of the bird's life if you want to continue to have a bird that enjoys your company.

Please make sure your bird has trimmed wings and has been seen by an avian vet to make sure it is strong and healthy before adding the stress of training to your bird's life.
