Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jul 21, 2014
Paco and Pachita were my first small sized parrots. I was very excited at their acquisition because they were my first pets. Some friends who also had parrots have recommended me the budgerigars because they are very sociable, energetic and with a little luck the male budgerigar could talk. So, at my birthday, about two years ago, grandma made me a wonderful surprise buying two parrots.
Parrots are funny and easy to maintain, all you have to do is buy them a spacious cage with a little mirror (they love to look in the mirror), seeds from the pet store, and sometimes you can feed them with pieces of apple, lettuce or carrot. I've got to purchase a piece of calcium that helped parrots sharpen the beak. This aspect is very important because budgerigars beak grows continuously and has to be sharp, otherwise they would not be able to eat.
At first it was a little hard since they spread throughout the seeds out of the cage. At night is not recommended to have them with you in your room because they make noise. Female budgies are more demanding when it comes to eggs, because she won't make any eggs until she has a decorated nest.
One morning Pachita inexplicably died, I didn't know why but it was a sad day ... and a few months later, Paco also died of loneliness.
So if you take two budgerigars and one of them dies, buy a replacement, as they can't stand the loneliness.
