Budgies HTML again
Budgies. Everyone knows someone whos had at least one. Theres a good reason why theyre so popular.
These little bundles of energy are smart, colorful, delightfully playful and a are among the best talkers of the smaller parrots.
Theres even some evidence that suggests that theyre as smart as the famous African Grey Parrots. Budgies love
to be with people and if not given enough things to play with, they will invent their own games. Theyre easily one of
the best beginner birds, and in many countries they are fighting for first place as the most popular pet bird! It doesnt
take much to teach these guys to talk, though, with any parrot, talking ability is not guaranteed. I have two budgies right
now and the older one does not make a peep. The younger girl doesnt talk, but she mimics her cockatiel rooms mates and
the wild robins that pass by the windows in spring.
These guys are super easy to care for! Theyre small enough to eep several in an apartment, reasonably quiet, easy to
train, love to talk, and can live as long as cats and dogs if properly cared for.
Their drawbacks arent diverse, fortunately. They dont like to be handled like cockatiels, and many may find that
a turn off. They also like to chatter non stop. Theyre not loud, but theyre consistant and if you like silence,
these guys might drive you a bit nuts. The also like to bicker with other birds and think theyre a lot bigger than they
really are. Im always seeing my budgies pick on my quail, though they do it out of playfullness than out of malice.
