With my budgie Joey, ive had him for 1 month now and he seems to be fine. I belive he is just finishing molting as he had some pin feathers in his head (atleast i think thats what it was) and my mother told me there was lots of feathers in his cage over the weekend (i cant spend time with him from friday-sunday) He adores his cage, when i try to bring him out, he tries to hop back on his perch, but if i am fast enough to bring him out if i move him to the other side of the room he is very content to sit on my shoulder or ontop of the monitor.
There are sometimes he wants to come out the cage on his own but he doesnt seem to want to spend any time with me. I can get him on my finger no problem and once he is on my finger he seems to sit there quite content. There are times when he will not want to get on my finger, as in i have to force him from his perch, curtain rod or monitor (the last 2 are his favourite places out of the cage) and there are times when if i take him out my room (where he always is) and put him on the floor, he will scurry back over to my finger and step on willingly.
He NEVER bites me, if i hold him on my finger up vertically he gently rubs his beak on my finger as if to say "oi, stoppit" but thats the worst ive got from him (apart from when i lift his wings up, which is understandable)
I have NO idea where i stand with him, please note ive bought him various toys and he hasnt looked twice at any of them.
Do i have just a very quiet timid and shy budgie?
