Budgie Socialization

by Walter Hotkowski

Starting the Socialization Process
My method for socializing Budgies begins with the following assumptions:
My reasons for socializing Budgies are consistent with the following aims:
    To have a breeding colony that is relatively accepting of my presence in their daily life. This allows me to check the nest where the hen will often stay in the box and will nibble my fingers to signal her expectation that we are friends.

    It allows me to have birds alight on my hands in the hope of being let out of the cage for exercise.

    It builds trust and the rich variety of interaction that is a source of apparent fun for the birds, and one of satisfaction for me.
