    Re: New budgie, need ideas..

    Hi, and welcome to the community. Congrats on bringing home your new budgie. Get some millet sprigs at the pet shop. Then take his cage to a small room in your home. Shut all windows, cover windows with curtains, and take any mirrors off the walls. Have a piece of millet in your hand, and an unsharpened pencil, you will use for a step up perch. Let him eat some of the millet off the top of the millet sprig, extending your arm, and hand, toward him, so he can eat the millet. Practice this training a few times a day at first. Then, when you see he is not afraid of your hand or arm, and is eating the millet each time, take the pencil perch, and gently press it right above his feet, into his tummy area, and tell him...step up. When he does step up, let him eat some of the millet off the sprig, and praise him, telling him...good boy. Repeat this exercise a few times a day, and soon, he will step up with no fear.
