Default Loud noises make my budgie speak soft and Im not sure if its okay!

My new budgie (unnamed) I call buddy, is doing this clicking sounds every couple minutes and I don't know if that's normal. But my big problem I am wondering is this My budgie making sounds, not sure if it's good or bad - YouTubeHe (or she) made these sounds with my fan running (read description of video) not sure if maybe the loud noise interest's him, or scares him to death.

Unfortunately, I can't access your video either.

However, generally background noises like fans, etc. are pleasing to budgies. (Make sure your budgie is not in a draft of cool air from the fan, though!)

Do the clicking sounds sound like pebbles being tapped together? If so, then they probably mean he's happy, relaxed, or content.

This and what bparakeets says is correct. It is probably just happy to the white noise. Perhaps it calms them. Anyway, I would have liked to be able to view the video just to be 100% sure. If you are still concerned, please upload another video.

try this My budgie making sounds, not sure if it's good or bad - YouTube he makes like click noises like a clicking noise. He also, today when I turn the fan on he jumps all around and was being loud and then quiet and the loud etc. Had it on all night and he was silent.

You might be able to hear one of his clicks at the end of the video, another thing, he is now 4 days in my home and he won't consider touching millet or fresh foods! I am not hand feeding I put them around the cage or in his dish and he won't even kinda look at them! still scared maybe?

Hi! to Talk Budgies

The sounds your budgie is making are quite normal and nothing you need be concerned about.

How old is the budgie? You mentioned hand-feeding which concerns me.
Is the budgie at least 8 weeks old? Budgies under 8 weeks should not be released as they often are not fully weaned and/or may regress.
Did you get the budgie directly from a breeder or from a pet store?

When 8 week old (and older) budgies are first brought into new environments they maybe very scared and submissive initially. It is normal for birds 8 weeks and older not to eat for a couple days as they settle into their new home.

The fact that your budgie is chirping a bit is a good sign.

You can cover the top and three sides of the cage to help the budgie feel more secure. Playing music for him when you aren't around will be helpful as well. Budgies perceive no noise as meaning there may be danger.

Taming and Bonding is all about helping your budgie learn to trust you and it takes a great deal of time and patience on your part.
You should never grab your budgie or force him to be touched.
To bond with your budgie, you need to build his trust in you.
He will have to learn over time that you will not hurt him, grab him and try to force him to allow you to hold him.

To build your budgieís trust, sit by his cage and read, talk or sing quietly to him for a period of at least 10-15 minutes, 3 or 4 times day. After the 2nd or 3rd day, rest your hand on the outside of the cage when you talk to him so he'll learn that your hand is safe and will not hurt him .

After a week, rest your hand inside the cage when you talk.
Donít make sudden moves, donít try to touch him .
Let his get used to the idea that the hand is now in his safe place and not harming him .

After 2 weeks, begin moving your hand slowly toward your budgie. If he becomes agitated, stop moving your hand and just hold very still until he calms down. When he's comfortable with your hand near him , you can offer him a bit of millet or a few seeds. In a few more days, you can begin your taming and bonding sessions.

Always work at your budgie's pace.
Move slowly and talk reassuringly and calmly whenever you interact with him .

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

Not sure his age. He still has the black part on his beak and he is young. I got him from a local pet store, I have been talking to him and I did try to hand feed once or twice which I admit, I should not have. He does not move very much but he is starting to play with toys and jump around. I talk to him anually but I was trying to let him adjust more before I talk to him. I think I am gonna start reading to him more. Ill keep you updated thank you guys!

Hi Joe and to the forums!

You've been given great advice! By hand feeding, do you mean offering him seeds or millet with your fingers, or actually giving him baby formula?

I'm assuming it's giving him seeds/millet with your fingers. If so, you're right, you shouldn't do this quite yet It's very important to earn his trust with the steps detailed above by FaeryBee before doing that.

Be sure to read through the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

We look forward to seeing you around the forums!

Cheers!
