Bobby the budgie has been in my family for nearly 8 years. He is a lovely bird who is always happy, singing away. (Which sometimes when you're trying to watch TV or have a conversation can be annoying, but at least he is happy!)
He doesn't like to come out of his cage, previous budgies we have had have flown out around the room, landed on our hand, shoulders etc and been great fun. Bobby not so much. He likes to keep himself to himself but we love him all the same.
He poos ALOT. So we clean him out every couple of days so he isn't living in a cage of poo. He has quite a big cage which I think is a good thing, especially as he doesn't like to come out. He eats seed and drinks water and as a treat every so often we will buy him some millet which he eats very quickly. (Greedy bird)
For someone who doesn't want a pet that takes up too much of their time, a budgie is a great pet, and if they come out of the cage to play then that's a bonus!
