Budgies make great pets for those wanting to start out with birds. They’re generally at ease around people, and will happily chirp all day long; which can be charming, or irritating depending on your tolerance for noise.
One downside is that they are incredibly messy and require their cages cleaned daily. They can be tamed with a little bit of effort, and their bright colours make them incredibly attractive to look at.
A firm favourite among Australian families, I would recommend budgies as a pet to anybody who enjoys keeping birds and is looking for a relatively low maintenance pet.
