Acquired: Pet store

I've had 4 budgies now- and can't wait until I can have another.
If you're looking for just one or two birds, then these ones are full of character. They love to play and talk, and when tamed, enjoy kisses and cuddles too. They get along well with each other, and enjoy listening to music.
If you want to own just one bird, though- owning a boy or a girl can be two very different experiences. In my experience, boys have been very fun loving and especially affectionate birds. The two girls that I've owned however, have been quite grumpy... but we loved them anyway.
Its not hard to clean out their cages. Being small birds, they don't need a big bird cage- so all you need to do is to take the bottom off an give it a wipe-over, then put more wood shavings or newspaper on the bottom. Simple! As for the birds themselves, they groom themselves actively. Still, a bath is nice for them in hot weather.
