    Right, I am having difficulties trying to tame this Budgie I bought recently and he/she is young.... He/she is just scared of my hand when I put it over the cage...When I'm holding him, he tries to escape but sometimes he just stays on my finger and closes his eyes for a few seconds as though he is trying to fall asleep on my finger. What are the step by step methods on taming my New Budgie

    The website www.cutelittlebirdiesaviary.com has some great information about bonding with and training your budgie. It's a fantastic site. It should help you work out whether your budgie is a male or female too.

    Your new bird needs to trust you first so you must go slowly. Good luck.
