Well Budgerigar is an awesome bird to have, but honestly there are many better alternatives..!
But its quite inexpensive so if you are searching for a bird for a lesser price, then Budgerigars are right for you with no doubt. If you are willing to spend some extra money, I'd recommend African Lovebirds over Budgerigars.
It's quite easy to pet budgerigars. It has quite good appetite and it's easy to clean and maintain. Be aware, it breeds really fast, if you don't want the number of pets multiplied within months, either choose Budgerigars of same gender or not choose them at all !!
Budgerigars are quite healthy. It's always better to dissolve a vitamin C tablet in their drinking water. It keeps them healthy as well as it enhances their color. And if you want them to breed, make sure they get lot of green vegetables and leaves. That gives various color variations to their siblings.
Overall, Budgerigars are worth the price you are paying for them, but remember, there are better alternatives.
