I'm thinking of getting a bydgie as a pet and itll be my first time getting one. Are there any tip you can give me on how to pick one, what age and how to take care of it?
Hi there :)
Budgies are great pets!
What you want to look for- a heathy budgie & a young budgie if you want to tame it.
How to pick a good budgie
1. Look for a budgie with bright feathers, not dirty, no poop stuck to it.
2. Watch the bird to make sure it moves around, ears and interacts with the other birds
3. Make sure the bird isn’t fluffed up, sitting on the bottom of the cage constantly or sleeping a lot because these can be signs of illness.
A young bird will have lots of baby bars- black bars on their forehead.
They also will have nearly fully black eyes where as an older bird (older than 6 months) will have an iris ring.
You can also tell my the colour of the budgies cere- a baby budgie will not have a adult coloured cere (blue or brown) baby females Ceres are generally very pale blue & white and a baby male budgie will have light pink/purple Ceres which will change colour between 4-6 months of age.
