Settling your budgie in
When you get your budgie/s home, give them time to adjust by leaving them alone, and just being calm and letting them get to know the sound of your voice. The reason why it is good to wait to let the bird out of the cage immediately is that it is might to fly into walls or windows which can lead to a painful death for the budgie. Give it around 3 days to get used to the room. Let your budgie come out on its own – that’s how it will know its way back. Sometimes they forget how to get back in their cage too, but they figure it out quickly. Put tasty treats like millet just outside the cage, so that they come out and get used to sitting outside the cage with something to do.
