I love my budgies. They are wonderful to listen to everyday although it sometimes gets a little irritating when they make a ruckus in their cage. In the most part, they were very easy to train once they got used to a new home. It took a bit of patience at first to get them used to me, but I soon got them stepping onto my finger and flying around the house and back to me easily. My budgies got sick easily, especially when visitors played with them or fed them and didn't wash their hands beforehand (...they would feed them behind my back despite me telling them to wash their hands first and I wouldn't notice until it was too late). Despite several attempts, I have not been very successful in getting them to mimic words. Anyways, their feathers are soft, and I die a little bit in the inside from their adorableness every time they sleep pressed against each other. I love it when they hop around the floor at times too. The only problem I have with them is that when I let them fly around in the house or a certain room, I have to make sure to clean after their feces (which are tiny and easy to step on...although I guess I could cover everything with a newspaper).
