Thank you so much! My budgies are stars at target, as it turns out, inside the cage with my hand in there. I have a problem, though. Once I tried to get my better parakeet, Perry, out, but then he flew into my sister's room. I can't transport them to a training perch. Is there any way to get them to NOT fly away?

Hello Michael,
I will use Force-out and reconcile method. So my question: should I have to clip wings to prevent it flying off?

Not necessarily. Just make sure you take it out in a very small room (bathroom/closet with light) so it can't get too far away. Make sure it is already used to taking millet from your hand before you take it out. Make sure it is hungry when you do take it out and just let it eat a lot of millet from you. If in doubt though, I suggest using the target in cage method unless you have a good sense of what you are doing or already have a fairly tame bird.

Thanks Micheal for your help,

Sometimes I can touch the budgie by finger without any problem but it didnt eat from my hand. Even if it is very hungry it will not eat from my hand. And I have another problem that it dont eat anything except seeds. I tried to decrease the seeds and add some veggies like lettuce and parsley and sometimes stop the seeds and keep veggies only but it will not eat ever even if it is very hungry.

First of all, i would like to thank you for the great article...

I have read it and really want to apply it to my budgie...thing is..my budgie seems like to fly very much...it is clipped though but still whenever i took him out of the cage hoping to train him...he justfocus onflying away...

Heis pretty tame, meaning that he would come to my hand and eat the seeds inside the cage..he will also step up to my fingers...

However, as soon as he is out of cage, he will bobbing his little head and aiming to fly away...he couldnt fly high and far but still it prevent me to train him target training or step up training as ur article suggested...please let me know how to train him with said condition..thank you for any advices.

Some of the videos aren't working and they are very helpful. Can you fix them?

Your videos are really interesting Michael.
My echo parakeet, Bébé, who's a baby raised parrot is an interesting case. Whenever I go near his cage, he always gets fluffy and when I put my hands through the cage bars, he tries to bite me. He doesn't get aggessive when I just sit next to the cage, but only when I put my finger through the cage bars or try to open the door.However you may be stunned to know that he has a bit Of Dr. Jerkyll and Mr. Hyde persona.
One day I opened the cage door, he came out and went up the cage. He was still aggessive. I took a towel and grabbed it through that towel and took him away from his cage.Now he was no more fluffy. He accepted petting came on my hands and didn't bite me. But whenever I put him back in his cage he became aggressive again and refused to step up while trying to bite me. I tried the target trick several time but whenever he got near the stick, he fought with it, trying to break it.
Can you please give me a solution to this case, please Michael. I want him to step up so that I can teach him new tricks while improving our realtionship.
