Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jun 15, 2015
I used to own budgies, usually two at a time, but I think I had about 6 in total. I found them to be nice pets. I liked how birds looked aesthetically, and I always found them entertaining to look at. But wow, they were loud. Budgies don't actually sound very nice, and they liked to make those screechy chirping sounds both day and night, and it could easily wake me up if I was sleeping in the same room. I didn't like the cleaning aspect of it either (having to clean an entire cage, water bottle, feeding thingy) but that is just personal preference. I only managed to train one of my budgies to do little tricks, but I thought that was very cute. But in my opinion, budgies aren't ideal as pets that you are planning on growing very attached to.
