Pros of having a pet budgie - they are cute and you have a very reliable alarm clock at 5am in the morning. The can be very loving when they are in the mood and are relatively easy to trick train.
Cons - moulting is a huge issue - I had to vacuum 3 times a day! I never knew such a tiny creature could leave so many feathers around. They can also be moody and bite down pretty hard during moulting periods. If you have ceiling fans around the house you may also need to clip their wings, which isn't the easiest to do.
