Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted Aug 18, 2013
I've never personally owned a budgerigar, but I used to look after my neighbours for a month when she went away over Christmas each year.
I've always found these birds to be a pleasure to look after, they're quite friendly and never too much of a trouble. They love to be interacted with and they don't mind if you're not the owner. I'm sure these birds would also be suited to children over 8 years old due to their friendly nature and the fact they are very interactive.
I would seriously consider owning my own budgerigar in the future. They are very colourful and aesthetically pleasing.
