Acquired: Pet store
Posted Apr 07, 2013
Over the past several years I have owned 4 budgies. They are beautiful, and can be a lot of fun. If you train them properly they can be let loose in a room, or ride on your shoulder. They are also very easy on your wallet. All you really need to pay for is their food, cuttlebones, and the occasional treat. My budgies always loved bread and lettuce as treats. The only downside with budgies is they seem to bite despite being trained and trusting. So in saying that, I wouldn't recommend this animal in a household with very small children. Overall, though, budgies are wonderful pets for people seeking a low maintenance pet.
