all sounds well to me also if he will get on your hand when he is out...but yah they will fly away just for the fun of flying after all they are birds...if he wont come out on your hand tho dont try to make that happen ...just be glad he will again get back on your hand when out as this allows you to put him back in if you need too

once he gets pin feathers beginning a new moult dont be surprised if he dont let you pat/stroke him whatever...it will happen

Also one more thing, does he imitate sounds yet? Because there's a grey parrot on the floor above me, and she does this kind of chickadee whistle, kind of sounds like FEEE bee FEE bee Fee bee, and Storm has been copying it... Can I start training him to talk already even though he's so young?

Well, it's not exactly a kiss, but he will certainly learn the behavior if you teach him to do it after a certain cue. Careful not to let him injest human mouth bacteria though.

Budgies tend to get right up close and personal to the voice they are interested in copying. I think it's more the vibrations that help them get the sounds down right. He is VERY interested in learning your sounds. It's helping him get tighter with you, his flock. He wants to belong to you. Congratulations. I didn't get that from Chippy till a while later.

Well I'd call it a kiss. LOL That's what Levi does when I ask for kisses. Either my lips or my nose. I had always said kiss kiss or can mommy have a kiss..and kissed him on the chest or rubbed noses and made the kissy noise.
I think he'll learn to talk best right up close and personal like that. They do go by vibrations.
Levi pretty much learned to talk on his own..he picked up things I said to him alll the time. 1st words were Whatcha doin? Apparently i said it ervery time I went near him or walked by his cage without even realizing it. Then one day he just said it and shocked us! After that it was things like aww i love you baby boy kiss kiss, how're you? The real shocker was the first time he landed on my shoulder while I was doing dishes and he said-"whatcha doin dishes gin?" rofl He was always landin on my shoulder while I was washing dishes and he'd say whatcha doin and i would answer doin dishes again. haha Now sometimes he'll ask me "Wanna do dishes?" (I sometimes get him before i do dishes and ask if he wants to do dishes crazy ) Noooooo not really LOL He loves to keep me company while doing dishes. In fact it's when we have our best conversations. smile

Anyway it's GREAT that it didn't take Storm long to get that bond back with you..and I think there is a VERY GOOD chance he's going to be a big ole blabber mouth talker smile

thats exactly what Cappy does when i know he is really interested in learning a new phrase or two is to lean on my lips and pick up the vibrations when i speak...again ...slowly and clearly...usually after he does that it isnt long before i hear the phrase repeated by him...and i know when he is getting frustrated with trying to learn it as THAT is a time when he will do his ACCCK AAACCCCK he tries so hard and garble comes out giggle

i dont worry about germs from the mouth at all...unless of course you yourself might be sick...i think that is highly exaggerate myself...and i wouldnt miss a chance to give kisses or let him nibbles at my nose or mouth...just not try climbing into my mouth when eating to beg...i draw the line there lol
