Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

Some of you know I've been searching for budgies lately, and I came across an ad on CL today for a pair of budgies needing a new home....about a 15/20 minute drive from me...both supposedly females. One is blue/white named Cloud and the other is yellow named Lemon. they are super cute.
Anyways, she originally wanted $65 (both birds, toys, food, cage, etc). I emailed her earlier and explained that I've been looking for budgies to adopt as friends for my lonely budgie, and that I'm an experienced bird-keeper. She said that she would love to adopt them to me! And gave me her phone number. I asked her though if $40 cash would be acceptable instead of $65 since they'll be going to the AVet ASAP to get checked out. She said that was fine since she wanted to make sure they're going to a good home and asked that I stay in contact with her and give her updates -and of course I will So! I'm supposed to go pick them up in the morning!! Yay!!! I'm still waiting for her her to give me an address or place to meet her at...so everyone cross your fingers this won't fall through!

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

I'm really excited!!! I've already had a "deal" for a pair of budgies fall through recently, so this is more promising but I'm worried right now since it's almost 9pm and she hasn't text me back with a location

But, here are some pictures- they're the pics from the CL listing so they're not. that. great. but you can still tell they're cute

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

OMG SO CUTE! I hope everything works out well. It's not cheap taking any bird to get a check up, especially two! I've always felt like the budgies get the bad end because their inexpensive. People can't bring themselves to spend 200-300+ on a $17 birdie. I hope she understands her birdies are going to a AWESOME home!

Shirre, did you get an address????

Please be VERY careful. If at all possible, do NOT go there alone.

I know...I'm a big worry wart....but better be safe than sorry.

I really want this to work out for you.

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

Ok so we decided on 4 pm, but I havent decided on picking them up at her apartment or in a store parking lot...???

Hubby will be gone working today, so I'll be alone unless I can find a friend or someone to go with me. I don't really want to go alone either
