    Hi I got my first bird ever, a budgie and he is very happy and healthy (except he prefers to throw the spinach around rather than eat it) and he is lots of fun. BUT. Well I have been hand taming him (he is young with bars on head) and he is now able to go on my arm up to my shoulder and onto my finger and I can talk to him up close. He still is scared of me although, like when I go near him sometimes he flys away. But after about 2 more weeks do you think he can come <u>OUT</u>? Should I wait longer? If I do should I put a blanket down beacuse I have laminate flooring? Will he be scared? How do I get him back into the cage and how long should I wait till I put him back?
    Also he still isn't eating any vegies or fruits, any help?
    I got to go Angel is chirping... :)

    I think that is funny when they throw their food,my cockatiels do that when going threw their seed,the stuff the don't like,they chuck it.

    I always gave my birds a week or 2 before I started trying to get them out of their cage.I think where I have more than one bird,they are comfortable leaving the cage.

    I wouldn't leave my bird alone too long.I would want them to have as much attention they can handle at the moment.Just test and try,if he is too upset,leave him for other day and time.

    i agree with iluvbirds. usually just let them become more comfortable before trying
