Since he's only been with you for two weeks, my assumption is that Baby Levi is still in the process of settling into his new home and trying to become comfortable.

Sit near his cage and talk, sing or read to him frequently.
About 10 minutes at a time 3 or 4 times a day would be good.
This will help him feel more comfortable and start to learn to trust you.

I'll be interested in knowing what the Avian Vet has to say when you see him next week.

Best wishes!

Smile Baby Levi is chirping


Hi Everyone, Baby Levi is starting to get more comfortable. I have been playing music, parakeet sounds and talking to him for two weeks but he didn't make a peep until today. He started chirping! I'm so relieved. I've been so worried about him. I have never had a bird that was this quiet. I can't get him to the Veterinarian until Thursday so having a sounding board and your support is very much appreciated. Thank you, Ali

I'm sure Baby Levi is going to be just fine.
Sometimes it simply takes some budgies a little longer to settle into their new environment than others.
I'm glad to hear you're feeling better now that he's chirping.

Smile Baby Levi is doing great !!!

Hi Eveyone, I'm happy to report that Levi got a clean bill of health from the Vet today. However he's not as young as I was told. The Vet is guessing that he's around 6 mos. Old. I was told he was only 12 to 14 weeks. I'm a little upset at being given wrong information by the lady at the bird shop. I bought him from a “bird store” because I thought it was more reliable. I'm hoping he's not to old to (possibly) learn to talk. Either way he is part of our family and I love him. He is feeling more comfortable each day. He loves to listen to parakeet sounds on YOU TUBE. He has become very vocal. Lol. He will eat millet from my hand but nothing else. He's come a long way in the last week. Thank you for the encouragement.

Good news, I'm glad Levi is fine . It could be the bird store employee was misinformed about the age, and didn't purposely tell you an inaccurate age. 6 months is still very young!

That's great to hear. My little birdie is pretty quiet, but he will chirp along with music and budgie sounds.

As indicated earlier, some budgies simply take more time to settle in and become comfortable than others.

Additionally, some budgies are simply not very vocal.

I'm glad Levi is fine (I fully expected him to be! ) and that the vet visit went well.

It's good the Avian Vet will now have a baseline for Levi for the future too!

As the question and concerns have been addressed, this thread is now closed.
