Hi, I am vivek. I have 8 budgies and I love it like anything! I think I don't have any other better work than looking after them, but the only problem is I couldn't breed them! I don't know why?

My boyfriend and I got a pair of budgies about a week ago. Their names are connor and murphy( the brothers from boondock saints). They are great pals and we love them to pieces. I know some people don't understand having birds as pets but I love it. They're our "feather kids".

I recently bought a pair of Budgie parakeets from a pet store. I am estimating their age to be about 4 to 6 mos old. I have only had them for 2 days and was curious about letting them out to fly. Should I let them out now or wait til they get used to me first?

I have a pair of budgerigars named pebbles and bambam. They are a true joy. Bambam loves to move up and down the perches and dance bobbing his head up and down. They are wonderful pets.

I have two budgies, one yellow and the other green, called chippy and chirpy. Firstly whenever I come in to see them the female goes straight into the box. I don't know what's wrong. Also I'm worried because I know if I let them out they won't come back. I don't know what to do.

I am new at having birds and have two very pretty green parakeets that I would like to breed. How can I help make this happen? Would it help to have more than one female? Any advice would be very helpful.

I have a pair of australian budgies. The female (named Bonny) is an albino and is the calmer of the 2. The male (named Jazz) is a blue and grey pied and is very skittish but he calms down when he's out of his cage. These are great animals to have and you cannot be dissapointed with them!!!

Hey, my name is lesley and I saw that birds live 12 - 14 years. I've only had my bird for 10 years and I am really sad because it died today, december 14 2009. I really loved my parakeet, he was the best. I yelled as hard as I can and I cried as much as I could, but now I know that my bird is in a happy place. Sorry, I can't finsh this...

    It's all good Lesley, I bought two birds, Pearla and Pedro, and I only had my male, Pedro, for about five months before he died. Pearla is still alive thought, it's been about 10 months. lol

I'm 10 and i have a parakeet right now shes about 6 years old and her name is Tweety. I had another parakeet but it died 1 week later i bought it, i didn't even name it and it died. The pet store told me that my bird was carrying her own virus, and got to the other bird and died. But at least I still have my bird. She's all yellow with white cheeks. To me she looks rare for some reason.I love my pet bird!!
