My budgie Lime was the same way when I first got him. He didn't want to play with toys and never chirped. Now it's a month later and he loves his toys, out of cage time, and is almost constantly chirping! Some just take a longer time to warm up to their new home

Just like peopole, every budgie is unique and you cannot expect one budgie to behave as another does.

Even getting a friend for your girl (what is her name?) is no guarantee that will change her personality.

My boys are very rambunctious while my girls are not (all are English Budgies) Even when the girls were living with the boys it made no difference in my girls 'personalities.

Default update

Just wanted to give a quick update on Gigi. It's been a month and we had some progress. She is definitely more active , still a quite chirper not very curious unfortunately, at least for now.
She likes to come out of the cage once /twice a day, makes a circle flight around the room and back in the cage. Working on taming still: she would eat from the hand ( I give her sprouts from hand in the morning usually, then seed mix) , she would step up , but not always . She accepts kisses ( at least she doesn't bite , seems like she doesn't mind my lips touching her beak ) .
And she even allowed me to do a few cheek scratches ( she turned her head and fluffed up) . The wait was worth it.
What do you say guys? Not bad for a month of working with my stubborn girl ?

What a great update ! Good job on your part! Gigi really sounds like a nice bird. My English girl is sweet and demure, while my male is super active and playful. My female is also much quieter. She's so cute, I love her charm .

Please keep us updated with pics of Gigi too .

Congratulations on the accomplishments

My budgie did not not make much noise until after three months. Of course he was very young when we got him, and it is normal for them to be super quiet when they are very young. These days it's unusual to find Basil quiet...he's been making R2-D2 sounds all day. Just be patient, on both the sound and the taming. I've had Basil for almost 4 months and he still does not want to have my hand near him. Take it slow...these are wonderful creatures that will bring a smile to your face no matter whether they step up on your finger or not.

Cheers
