If you’re thinking about getting a budgie as a pet, please read this section. It contains the basic information you need to successfully keep a healthy budgie. This information is based on my experience and isn’t the only way to do things. If I don’t have any experience with an aspect of budgies, I don’t talk about it. That’s why you won’t find information on teaching a budgie to talk. There’s lots more information available from other sources (check out the Links page) but if you follow the advice on these pages, you’ll have a good start.
