    Will new budgie change attitude?

    Would like some advise. My husband recently lost his budgie after a long illness. We have gotten a new one that was about 4 to 5weeks when we brought him home. He so far has gotten finger tame and also will stay on shoulder for alittle amount of time, but then will fly off.He does not bite and is not afraid of the hand or fingers, but the question is will he change his attitude to have some interaction with us at some point , are we wishing for too much after such a short time. At first when we brought him home he flew under the refridgerator, he seems to want to be under or in something. Is it maybe because he wants to be back in his nest? We probably have never had one so young before. Do you think he will turn around at some point and will adventually be more receptive to us?

    Thanks for the information.

    Re young bird attitude

    I would think he will become more receptive to you all as he matures. Just keep working with him, keep some millet or whatever he loves on hand to keep luring him to you, and reminding him you are a good thing!
    They go through some stages while they are young, so keep working with him .

    Most birds i think as long as you spend ALOT of time with them they will become awesome!! You just need to keep trying and give the new baby some time to adjust!! The more they don't see you as a predator the baby will calm down!! Hope this helps!!

    Really about the same.He just doesn`t seem to be interested in us. We work with him everyday, I guess we will keep trying.

    Yes, just keep at it. It will take time, but patience is the key with taming a bird. Talk to the bird, and "sweet talk" with him. In a gentle high-pitched voice.
    Try to handle him as much as possible and you can give him treats when he shows response to you. I hope that the little one will have some change soon, he will in a while, just stay on it! Good luck!
