Acquired: Pet store
Posted Mar 16, 2015
I loved my budgie, Petey. He was a great bird - fun to play with, and his cage was very easy to clean - I basically only had to remove the tray underneath that his droppings went into. Things I liked most about owning Petey is that he was fun to play with - I started training him to do things like step up on my finger, or on a stick, though I never did get to train him to do much else. The one thing I didn't like about Petey is that he wasn't much of a song bird - he more or less "sqwauked" a lot, so he wouldn't be a good pet for me to own right now, since I work at a job where I have to have a quiet environment - the people I talk to couldn't hear him sqwauking in the background. If I decided to get another bird, I might choose something that was both a songbird, and that I could train to do tricks.
