Hello!

Im married and have a 14-year-old son. We recently bought a new budgie about 2 months ago. His name is Groot. Hes slowly taming. Hes been coming to me on my finger for the past week which is a big break through. He even has started calling for me when I come home so he can come on my finger and eat the millet spray. Very excited about my new bird!

Re: Hello!

Welcome to you and Groot!

Nothing more exciting than taming and closely bonding with a bird! Here's a popular thread to help build trust: Tips for Bonding and Building Trust
