Acquired: Bred bird myself
Posted Apr 13, 2015
Simi is a very unusual budgie. We've had her since she hatched. Simi is a big bird personality in a small bird body. She flits around like a hummingbird and teases the bigger parrots in our household. She has no fear. She comes to our table while we're eating and joins us. Because of her, our other budgies have become more accustomed to fruits, vegetables and grains, where they wouldn't have touched them before. She is a very happy bird but her moods are mercurial and she can get very nippy, especially when it's time to go into the cage. Of all our budgies she has the most personality, but she definitely has a mind of her own.
I think that a budgie makes a great pet, although as any other bird, they all have their own personalities. We raised Simi from an egg and I highly recommend obtaining a baby bird that has been either hand fed or hand tamed.
