Default my budgies are afraid of me help

Hello ever1.
I bought those budgies 5 months before regular pets store.

My budgies are very afraid of me.When ever i try to open a cage & put some vegetables or fruits those stupid budgies try to avoid me they start to fly in panick here & there.What are they thinking am i going to murder them lol.Last night i put a sweet treat in budgies cage but the budgies started to fly in panick.I caught a budgie to tame it.I caress it on its head,face,beak & belly but that budgie was biting me rapidly he had bitten me 1000 times still i was saying to him its ok become my friend but that idiot was not listening he kept me biting.And i kept him kissing.Later I got really annoyed from him & open its beak from my hands a very little beak grind sound or cracking sound comes from him. Will he be ok?I am tired from them will i bring african grey or cockteil?or budgies are perfect friends?
thx

First of all, grabbing a budgie and forcing it to be near you is not going to tame it.
you're budgies are afraid of you.
To get them used to you, you need to sit by the cage, talk to them, place your hand inside the cage WITHOUT touching them, so they get used to you sitting there, and your hand being inside their cage.
Taming a budgie takes time and patience.
They need to learn your not going to hurt them, budgies do not like to be grabbed and this will really scare them and make them not trust you.
please try taking slowler steps and being patient.
Like I said just place your hand inside the cage, eventually they will stop flapping around and just watch you.
when they are used to you placing your hand in the cage, try offering them millet while you are holding this.

I hope the budgie is okay, I don't really understand what you did to it.
And No you should not get an african gey or a cockatiel, they will be no different if you don't have patience to tame them! and bigger birds like african greys need LOTS of care and patience from their owners.

I hope you have more luck with your budgies.. please be patient with them, when they bite they are afraid they not trying to hurt you.

aww don't force the little guys. let them come to you when they are ready. imagine if you were the bird, and this huge giant grabbed you and forced your mouth open, how would you feel?

You need to read some stickies here on training and bonding, and handling budgies in general. When you master handling your budgies, and properly taking care of them, you can then move on to bigger birds
