I saw someone mention before that they clipped their budgies toenails. Does this NEED to be done? Or will the nails file themselves down somehow? My budgie has a beak filing board, but nothing that would file its nails. I don't want to do anything to it that would make it hate us more. She (?) Is a nice enough bird. She doesn't really like us much, but we force her to hang out with us and come out of her cage to get to her beloved millet. She is not mean at all, no bite or anything. Its just obvious she doesn't much care for us, no matter what we do. My dh finds her personality endearing, and I guess I do too (she's the cranky bird who hates us), but we both wish she would warm up to us a little. We include her in everything.... computer, tv time, perching on the windowsill during dishes, etc. She absolutely WILL NOT come out during the day unless she chooses to (we leave her door open all the time) and its a fly, catch situation when we get her out at night until she finally resigns and sits on our shoulder. She sings and plays during the day, as her cage is next to the window and we have lots of wildlife for her to watch, as well as a mirror and swing in her cage. She has a treat bar and a very nice cage, which the door only closes as night. Any comments or advice would be appreciated. We don't want to get another bird for her, as she will NEVER be nice then, but we worry also that she may be lonely. We have 3 dogs, and she chirps and sings when they bark. She also loves the music we have playing...especially bluegrass! I think she is generally a happy bird, she just doesn't like us, and that makes us sad.
