To tame a complicated budgie, try first of all to be calm and concentrated, animals sense negative energy in people, so if you are upset or scared, try to collect your thoughts and start the work of taming. For a budgie to feel safe at all, you must provide it with a calm and warm home, with conditions that satisfy your bird. Try leaving him in the room for a day or two, and then approach him and try to socialize with him. You achieve this by, as said, calming yourself and your voice. Don’t accidentally be loud, because it can scare a frightened budgie even more.
Choose a quiet part of the day, approach your budgie and call him in a sweet and sociable voice. Take a small towel and gently open the cage, cover the body of the budgie with the towel and take it out of the cage. Be careful not to squeeze it too much, but playfully start hanging out with your bird, show her that you are her friend and that you love her, and that you want to make her happy with your presence. With light movements, remove the towel and hold it with your hands, so that it gets used to your smell. Try to feed your budgie with one hand and repeat this almost every day by doing something new like playing with him or giving him water.
How to tame a scared budgie?
As mentioned before, let your budgie settle in the corner of your home that will be his home. To begin with, put him in a corner of the house where he will have the opportunity to see people, thus giving him the image that people are not dangerous at all and do not want to harm him.
Keep the cage at eye level so that the budgie does not constantly move something above his head because this will make him feel very uncomfortable.
Only when the frightened budgie gets used to the environment can the taming process begin.
The first step may be to keep your hand or finger on his cage. Do not move your hand quickly so as not to frighten an already frightened bird.
Speak close to the budgie in a calm and gentle voice so that it does not recognize your voice as a threat. You do this every day for about 15 minutes. Over time, you will realize that your parrot is slowly getting used to you.
The next step is to put your hand in your bird’s cage while talking in a calm and quiet tone. The idea behind this is for the budgie to simply get used to your hand and smell. Even if he gets a little scared at first, don’t move your hand, hold it for 15 to 20 minutes every day until the budgie gets used to your presence.
Then start offering food from your hand, then he will become aware that you only want to be his friend who takes care of him. If you continue at this pace, you will be able to see the budgie sitting and eating out of your hand. Well, isn’t that wonderful?
After that, start training with your finger. Let your finger be his resting place. If it is timid at first, gently touch the front of the bird’s chest with your finger.
Then the next day, try to take him out of the cage, with very calm movements. Do not keep him out of the cage for too long, until he gets used to the outside environment of your home. When he gets used to the outside environment, try to offer him a treat in another corner of your house, just to show him that the whole house is his home.
How to tame a budgie that bites?
I understand that it can be very difficult for you too when your bird attacks you, but try to ignore its bites so that it understands that it will get absolutely no attention from you. When he realizes this, he will realize that his aggressive behavior is not helping him at all and he will stop it.
All in all, give him enough sleep, food, and water, and IGNORE him when he bites you because then you won’t get the attention he craves. Just like with children.
Why is my budgie not taming after all?
Unfortunately, this means that you made a mistake in certain steps during taming or that you did not approach it adequately. Certainly, no problem, because we are human and people make mistakes every day. You need to know your budgie’s behavior so they know how to approach him.
If you accidentally took the parrot hard or grabbed it, it could scare it very much and move it away from you. Do not look him in the eyes, because he is a bird of prey, if you look him directly in the eyes he will look at you as an enemy. Even when talking to your bird in a calm tone, avoid direct eye contact.
Budgies that are too young cannot be tamed, because they are separated from their mother after six weeks, after which they start feeding and drinking on their own.
Avoid baby talk, it may sound too irritating to your parrot and may scare him, as it is simply not natural.
When you let your budgie out, see if all the doors, windows, and hatches are closed first, so that your budgie does not escape from your home, which he will do if he is not tamed enough.
Cover the mirrors and put curtains on the windows to avoid the possibility of an accident. If you see that the bird is under stress during the taming process, just don’t force it, let it relax.
It is important that you show the budgie that your home is also his home, that it has everything he needs, and that during his life with you, you will give him absolute love, and attention and that you will make him happier and happier every day. Because having a pet is a responsibility, just like having a child, because they are living beings just like people.
