Of the hundreds of birds I've fostered and owned, nothing has brought me more joy than these little guys right here. Completely underrated and completely underestimated! I can compare the talking abilities of these little guys to the african grey. If you take the time to train these little guys to their full potential you will be so pleased with yourself and your bird. The behavior issues that come with bigger parrots are almost non-existent. Really take the time to get to know your budgie and give him or her a chance to flourish. SPEND TIME WITH THEM. Let them be a part of your life! They want to get to know you as much as you want to get to know them. They are well suited for all ages and living arrangements. SUCH a sweet and SMART bird. I've known budgies that could mimic full on sentences!
