Budgies Make Good Pets

Budgies or parakeets, whichever you wish to call them, are proof positive that good things do indeed come in small packages!

Intelligent, active, inquisitive, and friendly are the words most often used to describe these jewels of the aviary and these characteristics have made them one of the most popular companion birds in the world. In the United States alone there are over 8 million budgies happily sharing their lives with their human flock and statistics show that there's not a single community that doesn't have at least one budgie breeder in it.

Why are these little birds so popular? Most probably because the budgie manages to combine clever intellect with a bubbly personality that makes it very difficult to ignore their special charm. If you are just getting your first budgie or if you've lived with them for a very long time please let us know which qualities you find most attractive!
