4 Steps To The Perfect Budgie Home

Housing tips for the perfect budgie home.

Photos By Christopher Appoldt

Budgies are some of the most cheerful pet birds out there — and the most popular. It’s impossible not to smile when a budgie’s near.

They fly or hop from perch to perch; they vigorously swing back and forth and scramble up ladders. You’ll want to invest in a proper home setup for your budgie so it lives a long, healthy life.

I noticed that my budgies are very active in a way you described it.

Often times people cut corners when it comes to budgies--too small cages, too few toys, inadiquate diets, etc. I think it's great that BirdTalk is helping to educate more budgie owners...I wish they were around when I got my first budgie!
