Chip has gotten more independent and skittish all of a sudden since he's growing up (happens so fast in budgies!), but hopefully he'll regain a bit of trust again. I'm just about to move him out of quarantine, but still have some finishing touches on the cage.

I think whether a budgie remains snuggly into adulthood depends a lot on their individual personalities, and most don't, as "parakeet" species usually don't. My late Twigs got to be where he understood and obeyed verbal commands, but he never wanted to be touched. One I got at the same time as him was much more easily tamable.

You have a wonderful girl in your Elsa, as I don't think most (especially new ones) are like that. My Mink is a handfed, and while she will step up when asked to, she prefers not to be handled at all.

Thank you . I absolutely love budgies. I only discovered them a few years ago, after having parrots for a long time.
