Well, I want to first start off by apologizing for my inactivity! I have been continuing my bonding sessions with Peri, but I've tried to stay far from electronics and such because once I get on, it's difficult to come off. I have been recording my progress with Peri on a journal and I'll just summarize what has been going on these past couple of days. Last week, I left off with Peri eating millet from my hand and she's very comfortable when I'm around her cage and she is very eager when she spots the millet on my fingers. Such a cutie I've been doing that for the past days and I see she's coming out of her shell more and more! Now today, I thought I would do something different. I took a whole piece of millet and clutched it in my hand while holding a finger out as a perch. She was hesitant at first, but got close to eat and she stretched out so far so she wouldn't have to climb on my finger haha. She was so funny looking! I slowly pushed my finger towards her belly and SHE HOPPED ON! I was so surprised! I'm sure she was surprised as well because when she hopped off, she backed away a little, and so did I. But eventually she budged and kept hopping on and off to eat. I just wish I took a video or picture or something! It was so great! The work is finally paying off and I'm getting more and more motivated! I ended the session with just offering millet on my fingers so she could settle down a bit. I'm very happy Peri is starting to open up! One of my friends has two Budgies and she grabs them and I keep advising her not to do that and she (sadly) says she has to do this so her Budgies don't "end up" like mine(whatever that means) :/ well. I don't mind going slow, just as long as Peri is willing to be with me, that's what I'm truly aiming for...

Quick question before signing off~ I've been seeing a lot of pictures of Budgies up close from everyone here, and they are truely adorable. I wanted to know, when the time comes when I can take pictures of Peri like that, how can I make her not fear my phone or camera? It may sound kinda selfish, I guess, but I really want to start video recording my progress with Peri. Thank you!!!

You should give it some time. I'm sure the camera shyness will disappear with time. Just keep up the excellent progress with your birdie.

Thank you so much Dylan! After I posted, I have been putting my hand in the cage without millet and Peri kinda lightly bites my fingers. It's not exactly like biting... there's a word, I just forgot what it was lol

That is cute, but you do need to make sure the (gnawing?) does not become a habit. I'm sure they have guides on here somewhere on how to prevent the whole biting bit, but that being said, I think your birdie is so cute. You're on the right track, too! Keep putting your hand in Peri's cage to get them used to having your hands around. I'd like to hear about your progress soon.

Its like tasting my fingers. But now she has been "tasting" a little harder than usual. And I try not to react so she doesn't see it as a way for attention. This is the first time she touches my hand without treats in it so she doesn't know what biting gives her yet(?) I hope haha, but I will definitely read that sticky about the biting issue just in case it does become a habit, but I hope not!!

If Peri is very lightly nibbling your fingers then she may be "preening" them for you.

If she begins biting harder then it may be a sign of dominance or a cue that she wants her own space at that point in time.

Thank you, FaeryBee. I did not know that, I would back away when she would move away slightly, but I guess I was probably being with her while she was tired haha, my fault. Yes, she was kinda preening my fingers and today she did the same thing, and didn't bite today, yay! I read the sticky on how to prevent biting from becoming a habit, and I must say, even though I've read it before I while ago, you always learn something new every time you go through it again!
