Most of my friends own parakeets,
or "budgies", as they are
one of the most popular pet birds. The word "budgie"
is short for budgerigar which is a native green and
yellow bird in Australia. Budgies are small,
colorful birds that are found in large numbers in the
desert interiors of Australia. Budgies are used to days
without water. Remember this while administering vitamins.
Budgies can eat almost
anything you can eat and they prefer it raw. A budgie's
main diet consists of fresh fruits, vegetables and greens.
Budgies are quiet, intelligent and nondestructive birds.
They make wonderful pets because of their relatively
gentle, gregarious and entertaining personalities. My
budgies do not bond with an individual, they interact
with all my family members.
There are blue, green, albino, grey
and yellow budgies. Each has its distinctive
personality. Some are stubborn, others are very sweet.
Some budgies may be sensitive while others might get
into mischief at every opportunity. As a pet it is doubtful
if the budgie can ever be equalled. Its popularity is
gained mainly by its amazing powers of mimicry, and
its antics are very amusing.
Budgies are capable
of developing a large vocabulary (perhaps 200-300 words)
but you have to take effort to accomplish this. Well-trained
budgies are a delight in your life but stubborn ones can
wreak disaster. Are yours robbing you of sleep?
