Owning a budgerigar

Posted Jul 26, 2015

For my 9th birthday, my parents got me two little budgies and that was the best birthday present I’ve ever received. I instantly fell in love with those lovely birds. They were so silly ,energetic & funny that It was impossible not to get attached to them. I called them Gene and Lily..Lily had a very funny personality. She was so energetic, even a bit aggressive that’s why I liked her the most!
.
Probably the easiest pet birds to keep are budgies.
-they don’t take up much space
-they are so friendly and smart which makes it easy to keep and train them
-you can teach them to talk
-they are so cuddly and enjoy being around their owner
-they are not expensive

Despite all the pros of owning a budgie you should definitely reconsider your
decision to buy these birds If you love peace and quiet and hate noise, cause they are extremely noisy.
Also budgies don’t live very long. Their average life span is only 2-5 years.
My Liliy died after 2 years and It probably was one of the most traumatic events of my childhood.
