Parakeet pushing head on board

You didn't say what your handmade cage is made out of. Is the frame made of wood and wires used as bars or do you have chicken wire sides? He might be banging his head on the wood because he doesn't like it or it obstructs his view. If the sides are chicken wire, not a good idea either because your bird might get his head stuck in it. Either way, small cages suitable for parakeets are very inexpensive. Handmade cages might be aesthetic to look at but not practical for a bird to live in.
