    How to Train Budgies

    Looking to train budgies to talk and become a focal point of family life? The training process can be tricky and even with dedicated training, the prospect of talking budgies becoming a fixture in your household is not guaranteed, but there are steps you can take to boost the likelihood of budgies talking.

    Training Budgies to Talk - An Essential Guide

    First of all, be realistic about the prospects of teaching budgies to talk. While these particular birds can make plenty of noise, compared with some of the famous parrot breeds, it's rare for a budgie owner to enjoy the company of advanced talking budgies.

    Don't begin training immediately. Allow the budgies a couple of weeks to settle in and adapt to the unfamiliar surroundings of the budgie cage.

    Over time, begin to drop in favourite words and phrases that you want the budgies to replicate every time you walk past the cage. Repetition will be the key, so try not to vary the phrases used too often. Even if you're carrying out household chores and are merely strolling by the cage, stop for a moment to talk.

    Don't become frustrated if progress is not forthcoming. Talking budgies will pick up the sound of certain phrases subconsciously, and may not begin to imitate them for a number of months, and sadly, in some cases may never be able to 'talk'. However, by enjoying their company as much as possible and training budgies at every possible moment, you can increase the chances of this process occurring.

    Allow the budgies out of the cage from time to time; this will help to boost your connection with these birds and may encourage them to trust in your presence over time. Train budgies until they seem comfortable with you handling them.
