I used to own two budgies, and I didn't really have a good time with them.
I got them from a family friend, and I guess they didn't treat them well. They were really aggressive, and I couldn't even hold them, because their bites really hurt.
They were in their cage all the time, and when they got out, it was because they managed to do so themselves. My little sister was afraid of them - and that tells a lot.
They found their way out of the cage and that's how I lost them. They got out from the balcony.
So the moral of the story - make sure you get your budgies from someone who has treated them well!
