Try sitting with your parents while the budgies are out with you. Are they tame? ( the budgies..not your parents ) and see if the budgies will go to them and hang out.

You have a research opportunity in front of you, if I were you, I would look for a YouTube video or two, and an article or two on the health benefits of letting them have time out of the cage, then provide the videos and articles for your parents to watch with you.

Re: My parents wont let Budgies outside a cage

Try to talk them and explain birds can't be in their cages all the time. Escape is common but in my opinion easy to avoid - the easiest way are closed windows and doors while they are outside. I know this way sometimes can be hard to withstand for us, especially if birds are few hours outside and/or there's hot outside. Then you can buy mosquito nets (google translator) and you won't have to close windows. During your conversation also try to explain that dangerous things can be taken for this time. Generally the biggest number of dangerous things is in a kitchen - I mean mainly full pots and when somebody is cooking something. If there aren't any full pots, nobody is cooking and other simillar things, the kitchen schould be safe. If you want you can ask us about more details of dangerous things at house. You also can say that somebody always will be at the same room as your fids (feathered kids), this will make them safer

Re: My parents wont let Budgies outside a cage

My two Budgies aren't tame. They live free in my house 24/7 they be used to use their cage just for sleep but now never.
Budgies like light, I have all the cage tops set up with perches and toys and food and water. They rarely leave the big window and play area.

When I first met them out, they would go back to cage on their own as that was the only place I had food and water at the time. Sometimes I would have to shut shades and turn out lights except over their cage for them to go back.

For the first time letting them out you should shut all the doors to other areas of the house, shut curtains. Make sure it's safe. And have a milllit spray that you put in the cage by the open door when you are ready for them to go back.
Best of luck! At least for me it's no problems having them out,

Re: My parents wont let Budgies outside a cage

It may be for the best not letting them out, depending how untamed they are
Knowing small, flighty birds like Budgies, they can very easily break their neck if the hit a window or wall, or cause serious neurological damage.
Have you considered getting an aviary, because they can fly free and be safe at the same time- its a win win
Thanks

That is pretty much what I was going to say. Find some really cool videos with Budgies out of their cage playing and talking etc...
Or even just funny parrot videos. They'll be able to see how much more fun they can be when free to roam and play.

Re: My parents wont let Budgies outside a cage

You want to keep things calm and yourself calm. The first time out if the cage they will probably do a blitz fly around. Don't chase them. They will calm down and at first they will probably choose the highest places to perch , like on top of wall art, window sills, ceiling fans ECT. But after they relax they will usually return to cage area familiar ground. Especially if you set up the top if the cage with perches and food. The more the get to get out of the cage the calmer they will be. At first they startle easy. But these are smart sassy guys, the learn quickly. They love to play and explore. They are so charming even if not tame. If you can move the cage to a bedroom so you can just allow limited explorer , that can be safer, and they get the hang of being out
Good luck to you! It does improve their health to be able to fly, extends their life, providing enrichments for their minds.
