Budgies are Fun Birds

Midnight was one of many budgies I had. Overall budgies are a great choice for someone looking for a trainable bird, but don't want a larger parrot. Their squawk is not unpleasant, though I did have one that would not stop all night long, though this was by far an exception. Especially if gotten as a juvenile, they can be held, handled, and hang out on your shoulder (clipping the wings is recommended).
Budgies are also very beautiful birds and come in many colors. They need lots of toys in their cages, like mirrors, ladders, and swings. You can also play with them and their toys outside the cage.
Like most birds, they are flock creatures and do best with at least one more of their kind in the home.
