Hello, I just bought a parakeet from Petco last night. I've had parakeets before, but way back when I was a teenager in high school.

I followed the employee's instructions last night, and as soon as we got the cage set up and got him in it I put a blanket over the cage. I took the blanket off this morning when I got up and have been talking to him softly. He still looks very freaked out. His tail feathers are trembling.

I could really use all the advice I can get on how to calm him down and get him tame.

Give him much time as you're new owner.

I apologize for missing this thread. Gemma is exactly right - it'll take time for your new pet to get adjusted to the house. Patience is the key!
