Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted Aug 12, 2012
Budgerigar's are the most commonly kept pet bird in America. Small and relatively easy to care for, they are highly adaptable and can fit into almost any lifestyle. Due to their small stature and availability, people sometimes mistakenly believe that they are not "real parrots" but don't be fooled - if you purchase your Budgie from a reputable breeder (NOT a pet store) where the bird has been lovingly handraised, chances are you will be able to develop a highly rewarding relationship and have yourself a very tame pet. Budgies can even learn tricks and human speech - check out "Disco" on YouTube or google "Budgies on Skateboards" for some neat ideas!
