3. Budgies are often bored or stressed and can bite out of anxiety. Always insure he has adequate stimulation through toys and activities. If he appears stressed make sure he is situated in a calm environment with plenty of alone quiet time. Budgies rarely like to be handled all the time, so keep to a minimum until he comes to you.
.4. When your budgie bites ignore this behaviour and place him back in his environment which will discourage the behaviour. If he is in his cage then walk away and let him be calm. Make sure you keep calm and your voice at a low tone as you can elevate the problem.
5.Make sure he has the correct diet, fresh water daily and adequate quiet time (covered or in darkness – 12hours) for his sleep time. If he is over stimulated this can make for a cranky budgie.
6. When you do approach your budgie, do it in a quiet calm manner and don’t force him to do things. Allow him to take his time to get used to new things and let him make choices even if it doesn’t agree with your expectation. He has a right to an enjoyable life, and to make decisions of what he likes and doesn’t like. Some budgies like to be touch feely and some don’t, just like people.
7.It is not natural for a budgie to be locked, so you must ensure he has areas to fly and exercise or an aviary or large cage that will accommodate his needs. He needs access to sunlight and fresh air. In a nutshell anything he would experience in the wild you need to provide.
You now have the winning recipe for a healthy happy budgie which is conducive to a healthy happy relationship.
