My first and only budgie was named Petey. I got him when I was around ten and he was absolutely amazing. He was a true and loyal friend. Because I was only ten I had help caring for him from my mother. He was not too difficult to care for. He was easy to feed and his cage was easy to clean. He was very friendly and he sounded very nice. Of course, as with any animal, he did not live forever. I was very sad when he passed on, as any child would be. I would highly recommend a budgie as a good first bird for any young person (or adult) who is interested in breaking into the bird ownership world!
