    Hi Daisy,
    When I first get my budgies, I use a stick to encourage them to come out of their cage.
    First up, when I bring them home, I cuddle them in a washer, and talk to them. I also rub their head.
    Then I take them into the bathroom, and close the door, and let them loose on the floor.
    One bird at a time, bythe way. :wink:

    This allows the bird to relax and get a feel of it's environment. When it is relaxed I begin to teach it to 'step up' on the stick. It usually only takes ten minutes or so. Talk to it in a gentle voice, whenever you come near it, or the cage. That way, it 'prepares' the bird for your approach. :y_the_best:
    After that, getting the budgie out of the cage is easier.
    Well, that's my ten cents worth. i hope it helps you. :D

    I've had her since august 2004. :oops: I'm not sure what I did to make her act the way she does. She used to not be afraid of my hands, but now she is! :x It's like, she's not afraid of me, but my hands. She's been in the same spot the whole time I've had her. I'll have to try some of that stuff you all posted. :y_the_best:
