Budgies are such delightful birds! If you want a busy, entertaining and easy to maintain pet bird, budgies make a great intro into the bird world. The result of a well socialized budgie is an adorably bossy, chatty, and playful companion.
These guys can be impossibly flirty...they love showing off for their people and warbling/chatting away to themselves.
If you get two, they usually bond with each other and it will be very hard to tame them, unfortunately.
I find lots of people get cages that are too small, thinking small bird = small cage. These guys (and all birds) need big spaces and lots of toys and things to keep their little minds busy!
