So I was just saying the other day that 5 of my 6 budgies are unruly brutes and I don't let them out of their cage because they will not be put back in willingly or not. So of course today Frenchfry had to prove me wrong. I had her step up and I took her out to hold her. She sat on my finger and was "civilized"! She flew around some, and every time I asked her to step up she did. She was very well behaved. I think she has espn2!
I have 3 in a flight cage so its not a cramped starter cage she is living in. I hope this behavior continues. I think they have been watching the conures and figured it out. Fingers crossed here. Its nice to be able to interact with the little bugs more than the cage allows. We like to handle our birds and spend a lot of time with them.
