    Are these birds outside or in cage?
    You can soak bird pellets in water and hand feed them small
    wet mush on your fingertips. or a bit of oatmeal, mashed
    potato, wet bread etc. to make friends.
    Budgies tend to tame quickly when young
    the more nice contact you have with them the more tame they
