My Dad bred budgies so I have had a pet budgie most of my life. Skye was our most recent acquisition and he was a birthday present for my eldest daughter who is 12.
Skye is very friendly and happy to sit on a finger or a shoulder of not just Ella, but any family member, and the occasional stranger.
Budgies are really easy to look after. They eat seed, need fresh water and a clean out of their cage once a week. They love to eat thistles and other flowering weeds from your garden. They can learn to mimic words and phrases if you are willing to spend the time teaching them.
