How to Bond With and Tame Your Parrot | Gaining the Trust of a New Bird

It’s time for an update on my adopted budgie Violet!!! (Formerly known as Pablita). Today I show you the steps I used to bond with and tame her. When working with a bird the most important thing is to never give up! Taming a parrot, especially a small one like a budgie, takes time and patience. It’s so important to keep going until you achieve results, because otherwise your bird is stuck in its cage, and that is not ok!!

    I just got a bird tonight and I immediately went to your video to see how you do it

    My bird is used to me but isn’t friendly yet. It’s been 3 months!!! She just flies to the curtain or the fan or anywhere up when out of her cage. She steps up on a long stick and then with that stick she comes back to its cage.

    I have two budgies. I have tried so many things to get them tame. So far they will eat small pieces of millet from my fingertips and I have them get used to a stick touch. But when it comes to coming out of the cage or onto a finger, all hell brakes loose. I don’t have a big cage and the door to the cage slide up so I have to prop it open. Any ideas on how to get them to trust me more? Do I need a bigger cage so I can work with them? I love my birds and want the happiest and playfulest life possible and I fear Im providing that

    Hello! I have two flighted birds. I was wondering if I should just let them fly around when I leave the door open.

  12. ARMYZLUBBTS on April 6, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    finally my bird eats from my hand and sits on it. next step is to get her out of the cage.

    So nice

  18. Petlover#1 on April 6, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    My birds are scared to death of me when I get my hand close to them they breathe heavily and fly away. How do I make them use to me I tried everything! I got my 2 budgies from a pet store because I felt bad because they had 30 budgies in the same cage! And they had infections and diseases and they are traumatized.

  19. Lemon Boy on April 6, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    ok so like before I got my parrot my grandfather found him being tormented by teenage boys and I’m a teenage boy and last time I tried to let him out he bit me

  20. Riya Khan on April 6, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    I tried but they think that I am the cat and wants to kill them 😭🥲

  21. Kenna Rhorer-Keith on April 6, 2022 at 7:26 pm

  22. Derpa Turtle on April 6, 2022 at 7:28 pm

  23. Raelyn Disspayne on April 6, 2022 at 7:29 pm

  24. Rayne Puddle on April 6, 2022 at 7:30 pm

  25. Jayden Van on April 6, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Well for my bird I was trying to use millet but that didn’t work and I found out there was millet in his food so I used his favorite toy that has a bell on it and its slowly working

  26. Anshika Paul on April 6, 2022 at 7:30 pm

  27. Solo Autistic Explorer on April 6, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    This is bullsh*t! My birds are super scared of me!

  28. Cynthia Jones on April 6, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Question, if you die today will you go to heaven? Have you ever lied, stolen, hated, used God’s name as a curse word (O-M-G)? According to God’s law, you’re guilty. But wait, God loves you, he made a way out. God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life. John 3:16 Please think about your eternal life, believe and repent, even after rapture you can be saved. Love Y’all

  29. Itz Toca Elli on April 6, 2022 at 7:33 pm

  39. iiloveroseii on April 6, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Thank you so much Elle I tried everything you did in this video and now my birds don’t fly when I put my hand through the cage we play a lot now i want to do these training tricks this whole week so I can see if they actually step up thank you so much Elle you helped so much I never thought I would have a relationship/bond with my birdies 🙂 💞💖💕💓💗💘

  40. locsnlashes on April 6, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    How would you recommend I get my quaker to touch the stick as opposed to trying to grab it/push it away or biting it? I’ve had my parrot only 3 days and am trying to get her adjusted she bites at our hands and is pretty cage aggressive. Not even sure what the best method for getting her out of the cage is as she seems to be a bit calmer when she’s out of the cage. Great content btw.

  41. Simp Squad on April 6, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    I tried this with my new birds and emm…this did not go well

  42. Emilia Shadownight-Blackthorn on April 6, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    What if the first time, the budgie comes out and flies everywhere?

  43. Michelle Szabo on April 6, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    “ especially budgies”, does that Include young cockatiels?

  44. Cara Garrett on April 6, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Thanks so much for this! Lots of great tips. Question, do they learn to only poop in their cage? (It’s possible you answered that question in your video, I haven’t quite finished it yet, so I will delete my comment if you did answer it).

  45. Suleman Ganchi on April 6, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I thought the cuttlebone was pearl for a sec 😂😂

  46. Barb Pitre on April 6, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    after watching your videos Im looking forward to getting my 1st ever Bird (Loive bird)

  47. Selin Karakas on April 6, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    sh*t. I got two little budgies yesterday and opened their cage. The were sitting on the edge of the open door so I put my finger near one and it hopped on..but it got spooked and flew off my hand onto the curtain railing way up by the ceiling..I got them back in the cage after many hours of getting them used to my hand but I shouldn’t have brought them out of the cage so soon..

  48. Axel Werner on April 6, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Thats no birb ! Thats more like a BORB

  49. Justbloomy on April 6, 2022 at 7:56 pm
