2 Blue Budgies, the female is Skittle and the male is Milo.
So I havenโ€™t been getting much time to bond with them but Iโ€™m able to do everything I need to within that time, Iโ€™ve only been getting around 2 hours with them but they donโ€™t seem to mind, it actually makes them more excited to see me because I always give them millet, I like to give them as much sleep as they can because Iโ€™m sure they get interrupted by my cats, but anyway, Milo (M) only needed like literally 1 minute to step up on to my hand, Skittle (F) needed a little more time because sheโ€™s scared of a lot of things still but she went on my hand pretty quickly for her, spray millet is such a big help, I was using grass seeds as a treat before I got the millet and they really love both of them so if you guys have any grass seeds just growing outside I suggest giving it to your budgies, obviously make sure thereโ€™s no bugs or whatever on them first though, I think thereโ€™s also some bird flu so Iโ€™d be careful with that too. Hereโ€™s some pictures of them from today.

No bugs? But bugs are delicious!

(Extremely late reply) That hasnโ€™t happened yet but Iโ€™m excited for when it does, Iโ€™m going to be redoing my room soon and I might turn it into a bird room.

That's a great idea! I have a free-roam bird room/bedroom (really just a bird room with a bed and some bookshelves), and I cannot believe how tame, friendly, active, and desensitized my birds are compared to when they were caged most of the day!

PS. The first time they go on your shoulder (and every other time after that) is AMAZING. Such a good feeling!
