Okay guys this is my first poll (so bare with me). Just curious to know if you guys are bonded with your keets and how long it took to train them.

Hope you enjoy it!!

I got three bouncing budgies. And only one (Cuchito) is really bonded to me. It took me like a week to tame him.

I got Chevy about 3 weeks or so and it's been hard taming him since he's too distracted with his 2 friends. I also wish I had more time with Chevy. When I got Cuchito I was just going to school so it was easy to tame him. But now working two jobs and school it's really hard.

Gebo finger trained real fast, but I still can't get him to fly to me or sit on my shoulder.

I expect it will probably take an entire year to get him to where I want him to be.

We shall see.

Well I have one bird Frodo, but I also care for my moms bird Sparky a lot. Frodo I have had for a while and she still own't get on my hand really, but she trusts me and loves me. Sparky is my moms bird and was trained very fast, although it took me quite a bit longer for her to bond with me once I came around, probably because she was already bonded with my mom, dad and brother before I started coming around the house again.

Wow question 5 is one of the hardest questions I have had to answer, I honestly can't believe that it is 9 to 0 on that question, I would probably make it a tie if I could, I would love to have an entire room just for keets, just make like a 10x10feet room into a giant jungle gym for birds, when I have a huge house I will, I think it would be so fun. And I would care less if they were very bonded with me, I would just take a chair in there and bring some millet with me and just turn in some crazy bird guy with a bunch of keets all over me, lol. Great fun.

Well great poll Cristina, I enjoyed this one. Jloc

Sorry but I disagree with the last question. You can easily have more than one bonded to you.

To me that's like asking would you rather have one kid bonded to you or just several and just watch them.

LOL Jloc! Question 5 was even a hard question for me. I started out with one budgie now I got 3 and planning on getting a 4th budgie. By the end of next year I'll have 50 budgies wink . I know I'm having a baby but I just gotta get one more budgie to even out the field. I could already see hundreds of budgies surrounding you Jloc, lol. Sounds like a blast! smile

My 6 (8) are bonded to me, they are just not trained. I feed, bathe, and interact with them all the time. They will come to the sides of the cage to "talk" to me. They just don't want to come
out of the cage. They know they are safe in there. Each one knows their name and responds when I call it. Training in my situation would create a safety hazard for my birds and they would become too relaxed in their actions. I think some things should be left the way God/nature made them.

One other thingy. I don't believe they ever become "tame" they can be trained, but that is not the same thing. Many people have been killed by "tame" wild animals.
