    Finger training!!

    I pretty recently took my budgie Fuji home from the pet store. I have been trying to finger train him for a pretty long time and FINALLY he hopped on my hand. I took him outside the cage for a bit, then decided to put him back in cause he was getting stuck behind things. But no matter how I stuck my finger out he WOULD NOT go on my finger!!! I honestly thought I finger trained him!!! Is this just because he wanted to exsplore more or am I doing something wrong!!??? Plz tell me!

    Re: Finger training!!

    Hi, and welcome to the forum. You are doing great with him. Time and patience will win for you. When this happens, just let him be snd give him some time to play. Then try it sgsin in an hour or so. For not being with you very long, he is already stepping up and that is a real good sign thst he is already bonding with you. Get som spray millet sprigs at the pet store, and see if he will eat some off the top of the sprig. Budgies love millet as a treat. You can use them for training. Go on youtube and search for....training budgies..... videos.

    As he becomes more secure being with you, he will become your very best friend. I love budgies!!
