Was a budgie your first?

Was a budgie your first bird? Did the Budgie get you into the world of bird keeping?

Budgies were my first.

My budgies.

All I do is talk about my baby Sprinkles But I do have 2 very sweet Budgies. Here they are. They have their flight feathers in now and are getting pretty good at flying.





This is a video not sure it will work.

Re: My budgies.

What a good-looking pair of budgies. Beautiful in contrast, posture, and love the way they interact!
If the Rickeybird would let me, I'd have a pair, I promise you.

Re: My budgies.

My FIRST bird was an English Sparrow when I was like 13 years old..and my first "exotic" birdie was Wally..a light blue budgie..he was the bomb!
I was into wild birds at a very young age,but that little Wally got me thinking of "parrots"...and here I am now....thirty years later...
Actually MORE than 30 yrs ago lol..I have had parrots for 30 years.

Re: My budgies.

I just watched the video...your little white and blue guy is soooooo adorable! For some reason now, I have been wanting to rub my nose one all the cuties bellies lol and your blue/white guy is no exception.

I have found that Budgies,like 'tiels,are highly underrated as far as beauty,intelligence,playfulness and lovin'. Such little balls of fluff with so much energy and lovin' to give,they are awesome pets

Re: Was a budgie your first?

Budgies were my first bird, then I got another 2 after that one died, then a cockatiel after those 2, then another budgie as a friend for the cockatiel, and then a lovebird because I had the mistake of keeping my other 2 in the same cage and they bonded with each other not me.

Re: My budgies.

Budgies were the first tame birds I met, and the first I owned. I appreciate them more now than I used to. Especially Disco - look for him on YouTube. He's a riot!

I love Disco. He's the reason I got budgies in the first place.
