The Perfect Starter Bird

Budgies are great little birds that are friendly and active. They are great for responsible children who love birds. Although they range in their ability to mimic (and do not always do so too clearly), with proper handling you can teach them tricks. Overall, they are easy keepers. They don't require as much fresh fruit and veggies as a large hook bill and are simple to handle, which makes them especially safe for children. However, they do have a beak, albeit a small one and can nip if provoked. They can also be noisy at times. They are great little birds though that do ok alone, but better if you have two or more.
