- Budgie names are usually cute and easy to remember
- The budgies can touch you, but you can’t touch them
- Budgies dance in cages for your amusement, but they would do it anyway if you weren’t there
- They only pay attention to you if you give them a lot of want they want (millet)
- It’s hard to keep them off the (curtain) pole – see pic above
- They will probably lose interest in you and move on to the next customer
- Budgies need time in between “shows” to preen and chat
- They really seem to like shiny things
- It’s way more expensive than you thought it would be going into it
- Sometimes at night there’s a cover
We had a little warm spell recently and it brought a lot of outdoor birds out of their hiding spots to chirp and enjoy the nice days. It has also made Kelly want to communicate with them desperately, so she’s been flock calling to them every morning for hours straight. I know that in a week or so she would realize they aren’t going to talk back and stop trying, but in the interim we have this incessant yelling.
Before getting a budgie (or any bird), listen to this on a loop for 2 hours and decide if you can take the noise! Please excuse the weirdly-sized video and the water noise in the background, she stopped yelling as soon as she saw the camera so I had to run the water to get her going again!
From our flock to yours, Merry Christmas! May your holidays be full of millet 🙂
Presented without further commentary – a series of pictures that make it look like the parakeets are passing by a trail cam on the dining room table.
The holidays are fast approaching so as a special “cyber Monday” post I wanted to provide a convenient place to find my recommended gifts for parakeets and people owned by parakeets.
The products in this store have all been used in our household and are products I don’t hesitate to recommend.
