Hey guys !
So I got a new baby budgie , she is very sweet - I've had her for about 2 months now and I'm just getting her hand tame now. She's not afraid of my hand but she wont step up if she's on her perch , instead she climbs the side her cage and when i say "up" she hops onto my finger I don't even have to coax her or touch her belly. Just wondering if this is normal ? When she steps off she goes back onto the cage and then to her perch. Its just odd , and I love the fact she's starting to trust me but I also dont want to get her into any bad habits. Advice ?

Welcome to the forum!

Every parakeet is different and has their own personal quirks. It's wonderful that she jumps onto your finger. That's all that matters. It's not a bad habit at all, it's just her fun way of doing things.

We'd love to see photos!

I agree that it's lucky that she'll jump on your finger. My roommate and I have about 1 month baby budgies that we need to train now. I've been taking them in an unused room in my house and trying to finger train them while talking, whistling, or singing to them. We had been taking them outside and cuddling them but found out the hard way that could already fly (hadn't seem them even get out of the brood box before). Luckily we caught them and now go into the contained area. Today I got one on my finger inside the cage. Any other suggestions on what to do to get them more tame? Many years ago I had one that would squawk to me when I got home from school and then fly all around to get some exercise but then come and land on me. It would climb all over me and was lots of fun. This time I've got the three babies to tame but I think it's too late for the parents to be tamed.
