Acquired: Pet store
Posted Sep 22, 2013
Budgerigars are great pets to acquire at a low cost from almost any pet store. Initially you will need to purchase a cage with accessories as well as any bird seeds. Budgies should always be purchased in pairs to avoid loneliness. They are beautiful looking birds with a variety of colours.
Not all budgies are friendly, and will be frightened if approached. They need time to adjust and need to be trained to be more friendly towards humans. They can often cause annoyance with constant singing, although this can help to liven up the house!
Some time will be taken in cleaning the bird cage. This can be done once every two days. A easy way to ensure the cage remains clean is to place old newspaper at the bottom to catch the droppings. This allows you to simply take out and replace the newspaper. Budgies are definitely a great family friendly pet to own.
