New budgie hates me?

New budgie hates me? - 05/25/16 04:51 AM

I got a new budgie about 4 weeks ago. She has been in my house for a while. I have been interacting with her everyday and giving her treats. However, my interaction with her seems to make her even more scared of me. She was skiddish to begin with and only sat in one spot in her cage. She would let me pet her and would take spray millet from my hand. However, I had to move her to another cage and grabbed her. I think that the experience made her more afraid of me as she now does not even let me pet her. How can I make my parakeet trust me more? I see other people's parakeets sitting on their shoulders and I wish that my parakeet and I could have that kind of relationship. But I also feel impatient and I don't know what else I can do to make her trust me. How can I get my budgie to see me as a friend and not a predator?

A parakeet lives for 15 years or more - this is a long term process. No need to rush it!
