Hi!

My 2 month old budgie Mermaid has been doing this weird cute behavior for a couple of days now.
She was annoying me by biting my fingers while I was typing on the keyboard, so I grabbed her and flipped her on her back for seconds. Since then she's been trying to tuck herself under my palm like waiting for me to grab her.

I couldn't post a media here to show you, so I'll put a link to the VIDEO
What do you think? Is she just playing around? I don't want to stress her by doing this but it's cute :hilarious:

She is as gorgeous as her name!
She definitely thinks it's fun!
The wing flick , when in your hand , kinda makes me think a little sexy time response so just see if she starts seeing this game like that

Thank you!
Isn't she too young for sexy time? I'm not ready for hormonal behaviors :roflmao:

Since she's a baby, that looks just like freaking adorable play behavior to me. Merlin liked playing with my hands when he was a baby, too-- he did a lot more play fighting with his beak and feet.

She doesn't seemed stressed. And that's so cute by the way.

I think she just is comfortable that way. Which is impressive because I’ve never heard of a budgie doing that, only conures and Quakers.

p.s. just watched the video. How cute!

To me this looks like it’s a happy, confident, comfortable and quite trusting relationship you have with her :swoon: Absolutely lovely to see!
