I don't know why, but having a pet was always speacial to me. Even if it was just a little fish or something. I never thought that I would buy a bird. I just kept asking my mom (and I am only like, 9) if I could get a puppy. My dad is allergic so she always said no and that they are a waste of money. So we always had a fish or two or like a small type of animal with no fur.(That would include lizards,frogs and such.....) But one day, my mom suggested we buy a bird. So, today I have two blue budgies name Susu and Soso. They always seem to play tug of war with the chew toy. They are so precious! In a few months or after I get REALLY used to having birds, I'll have my own aviary and I will start breeding birds! Yay!

Your site is very good. I would not have known that the cabbage family was bad for budgies, although I have never given it to them.

I have only had my Parakeet for 7 days, I had noticed her outside with the wild birds that I feed and then it started to rain and the Parakeet was trying to find shelter, I went out and picked her up, soaking wet, named her Stormy and she seems very healthy for being caught in a horrible rain storm. She is a very happy bird and I am so glad that I found her and brought her into the house.

I HAVE HAD BUDGIES ALL MY LIFE. BILLY, MY ALBINO, IS CALLING TO ME RIGHT NOW! THEY ARE WONDERFUL LITTLE THINGS BUT CAN BE NIPPY AT ABOUT 2 YEARS OLD. KEEP THEIR CAGE LOWER THAN YOUR CHEST WHEN YOU'RE STANDING AND THIS WILL HELP WITH TERRITORIAL BUDGIES.
I LOVE THESE LITTLE GUYS AND HOPE YOU WILL TOO!

I got my parakeet almost three years ago. He is treated like a human baby! my husband and I do not have children, so needless to say we treat this screaching mimi like our son. I spend quite a bit of money on him. I buy him new toys on a weekly basis so he wont get bored. God forbid if he doesnt have a new honey log to munch!! He doesnt stay in his cage.(i cant bare to keep him locked up)
he has a perch made of rope suspended from the ceiling with a lot of swings and mirrors hanging from them. what can i say i love this little feathered creep!

My mother has a female budgie she is about a year old. We had her for 6 months before. This bird is unlike the others I've read about. She wont eat fruit or veggies. She tries to bite you when you reach your hand in the cage. When you put a spray of millett in front of her mirror she will break it in half if it's in her way of seeing herself. If there is a toy in her cage she doesn't approve of she will break it or do something to it to where it will have to be removed. She doesn't talk. There is something she does have a big
ATTITUDE!

I have three parakeets, 2 males and 1 female. one male is blue and white, and the other one is green and yellow. the female is yellow. I recently had another female (she was blue w/ a white head.) But there was an accident involving my nephue opening the cage door. All of them came out but only she escaped through the window. The two blue ones would peck at each other and feed each other. I have had parakeets since i can remember, in total i have had 14 in the last 5 years.
