Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jul 29, 2014
If your looking to be entertained on a daily basis, I wouldn't opt for a budgerigar. My mom decided to get a bird when I was 14 and I can remember how excited I was. I couldn't wait to play with the poor thing!
Little did I realize, you can't actually play with them...Well physically. Being young and all, I wanted a pet that would provide me with some entertainment but this bird was having none of that. If you have children, I would ignore their plea for one because after I got bored, it was left up to my mom to do all the feeding and cleaning.
If your retired and just looking for a low maintenance pet, then get a bird! They cost hardly anything to keep and sometimes you forget they are there because they can be that quiet.
Budgerigars are beautiful in appearance and come in all sorts of attractive colors. Our bird was called Aqua because of her beautiful Aqua coloring. So, they are very attractive to look at but not the most playful of birds.
