Friendly and affectionate, budgies can provide endless hours of pleasure and companionship. Most budgies require training to learn to talk, but even without words, they can charm you. Budgies will generally live between six and twelve years.
Before adopting a budgie, consider the following:
- Budgies need daily attention and interaction.
- Budgies need nutritious food, fresh water and a clean habitat.
- All household members should understand how to handle and care for a budgie, and they should all be as eager as you to welcome a budgie into the family.
