I got a budgie for my birthday one year and in no time I fell completely in love with the little guy.
Beaker was a green and yellow budgie with an active personality. I had him for 4 years and in that time I managed to train him effectively to mimic many sounds and also climb up on my finger from his cage. Beaker was a smart bird who was relatively easy to train.
Caring for a budgie was pretty easy, however, he did make quite a mess with his food and droppings and keeping up with cage maintenance was a regular obligation.
Beaker passed away after 4 years, of causes unknown, and I have tried other budgies since but never felt the same about them as I did Beaker.
