Acquired: Pet store

My mother loves birds. She recommended me budgerigars because they are small, active and easier to breed. I got one in white from a pet-shop. Luckily, a male one. Being affectionate, it spends every chance seeking your attention.
I didn't buy a suggestion from one of my friend who had 4. He told me they can get really aggressive if kept within 1 cage. To avoid that, I just brought 1 as a trial and I found this one very peaceful. Its easier to teach this bird as it learns quickly specially the 'step up' technique. Sometimes I let it have a safe flight in my room.
It eats seeds, veggies but you have to avoid fatty food or else you have to run to the vet.
CAUTION: Never kiss on a budgies beak. Our saliva is like a toxin to them.Aerosols are also harmful for your pet so avoid as much as you can!
If you are looking for a cheerful and affectionate pet then I'll recommend that you welcome one of these birds into your home sweet home.
