Hi i just bought my first Budgie. I have had her (i think lol) for about a week now. i didn't know a whole lot about them before i got one. so I ended up getting her out of a "bin of Budgies" she does not have her stripes anymore but she is still molting on top of her head so i think she is around 6-8 months? i was just wondering if anyone else has gotten one from a pet store that wasn't hand raised and have had great results with it. Her name is Bella and is already willing to jump on to my finger when it is in her cage and let me move her around the cage but gets very nervous when i move her close to the opening of the cage.

Bucks, congratulations on your new best friend!

My keet (Batfink) was the same as yours when I first got him - he had no problem sitting on my finger the day I brought him home, but he wasn't too sure about the cage door.
I found leaving the door open for him meant he could get used to it at his leisure. He now opens and closes it himself, provided it is not shut all of the way.

Welcome to the forum.

That is awesome! thank you and that must be exciting! i try to leave it open as much as i can for her to get comfortable with hte idea of being able to "exit" the cage... i figure its going to take a while though. thanks for the feedback though
