I've been handtraining my budgie KIKO usin lisa's method. I am on the second step and he seems to be jumping on the perch on command pretty well but when i put my hand in the cage and i get close to him he walks away as if scared. i am really confused, is he scared of mwe or not.

he probably doesn't trust you completely yet--it's normal. i wouldn't worry--just be patient smile

work on the trust-building for a while longer...you don't want to push your budgie smile

i have a question regarding this, my budgies get a bit nervous when i try to touch them with my hand inside the cage however when they come out on their own and sit on the window he steps on finger to reach the spray millet im holding in my other hand, my other keet is more scared and doesnt like to step up alot but she did go up on my finger twice today to eat spray millet and i basically had them both eat spray millet on my hand, now, what do i need to do for them to keep going with me around the room because i can walk a bit away from the window while he is on my finger but i must keep on feeding him the spray millet or else he relizes im going away from the window especially when the other keet is still sitting there, now i tried to walk away with both of them on my finger eatin spray millet also but the more scared keet flew back to the window and so my other keet also. so yea what do i need to do for them to stay on my finger? oh and the way i make my 1 keet that steps up is i push up on his belly and say up, i dont know if he steps because i say up or becausee i gently push on his belly but he steps up, i make him step up FIRST before i let him get the millet to make him understand he needs to step up to eat the millet, thats a good way to make him understand yea?

jc, lamon, u guys have the same problem. lamon, dont try to bribe your keets, try trust and have them do it without tricking them. they might lose trust if they figure out whenever they get on ur hand, u'll trick them. and jc, ur doing really well with the hand training. but u went to step 2 too quickly. step one was to get birdie trust. that means, the bird lets u touch him, pet him, and loves to chew on ur finger all the time. and most importantly, if u wave ur hand all around him, he wont freak out. if u get THERE then u should try step 3. =) i would suggest if u put ur hand in there and they are afraid, just let ur hand just sit in the cage doing nothing for like 5 minutes. i know it sounds really corny, but they get use to it.. and will soon start think of u as family. =)
