Okay, My name is Bambi, and this is my first time owning a bird. I have a blue budgie named Storm, and he was hand trained as a baby, so he learned the perch training very easily. He will sit with me on my finger, or near me on his toy. I play bird sounds for him and he chirps back smile its adorable because he's just a baby. Anyway, lately when he sits with me, even for just a minute, he tries to fly away.. the petstore clipped his wings, so he really cant fly, he just ends up falling, and then chirping loudly and angrily. I just put him back in his cage till he calms down hoping he will realize that if he continues to try to fly, he will hurt himself. But as soon as I put him back in his cage, he starts chirping and sort of what sounds like a little squeek,like he wants to come back out. frown I don't know what to do! I don't want him to be hurt! How can i get him to just stay with me and not try to fly into things? I'm honestly concerned for his well-being. I take him out at LEAST 8 times a day, and I feed him, he has his millet spray. He loves music and other bird sounds, but nothing seems to be working, can anyone help me? Thank you!

Hi Bambi. I also have a baby named Storm. Mine is a girl. Yours is very pretty. I named her Storm because she has a design on her chest that looks like a storm cloud. I am a novice too, but i would just give him some time. his feathers will grow back very fast and he will be flying around in no time.May I ask where in upstate NY? I also live upstate NY.

And it's not that I don't want him to fly. Eventually of course I want him to be a "bird" and fly around. It's just i'm scared to take him out now because I'm scared he'll hurt himself frown He is trained to sit and stay on my fingers, shoulder, and other people's fingers, he's very social when he wants to be. But lately he's just been flying and falling like crazy.. I honestly dont know what to do. The hardest thing he ever hits is the floor, or he gets into somewhere where he cant get out. frown

best not to let him thump to the floor internal brusing at the very least can hurt him or worse internal injury

I am 19. And thank you smile I have been reading your threads, I was hoping you would answer my question. I just called the pet store I got him from. He said I should HOLD HIM not just perch him on my finger.. its an aviary pet store, they have alot of exotic birds, but i remember in yous posts you said not to hold them, thats not a good way to train them. but i have been reading your threads, I probably just didnt get to the one that addressed my problem. frown sorry for missing it. would you mind still giving me advice on my thread?
