Budgie care

Getting an exotic bird such as a budgie may seem like a great idea, and they do make great pets! However before you buy one you must make sure that you do some research first, and are prepared to commit time, money and effort into raising a healthy, happy budgie.

Budgie's can live from between five to ten years or more, which is a big commitment. Are you going to be around to look after your budgie? Do you have other pets to consider? Can you afford to look after your budgie? Think about everything first, and then you'll see if you are still going to be as committed to budgie ownership as you first thought.
