Benji’s story of becoming my pet coincides with his cockatiel buddies story of adoption. When I started thinking about having a bird again, I was totally set on getting a parakeet. I had even gone to the store to check them out before I bought one. But it just so happened that before I got my new parakeet, I was informed of these two cockatiels needing a new home. It wasn’t a very hard decision to agree to taking them. They needed my help and I wanted to give it to them. Anyways, after a few weeks of letting my cockatiels settle in, I still wanted what I had originally planned for. So we went and looked at the budgies at the store and fell in love with this little yellow guy, my Benji. I bought some more supplies, new food, and brought my budgie home.. Awards

Hi! My name is Benji

I am a Budgerigar from Bradford, ME.

We call Benji all sorts of names. ‘Benji the Budgie’, ‘Ben-Ben’, ‘Benjaroo’, ‘Little Buddy’, ‘Pretty Boy’, and more along the same lines. I call all of my birds ‘Bub-bubs’ and ‘sweetsies’ as well.

4 years old   M


Benji and I are working on his diet lately, trying to introduce new foods to him. So far the big winners have been, broccoli and strawberries. He seems to really enjoy those two the most. Of course, he also gets millet and honey sticks from time to time. But right now I just really want him to give fresh fruits and veggies a real try.

Ever since Benji was placed in his cage for the first time, he gravitated right to his Booda perch. I figure it must be true when they say Booda perches are ‘comfy’ because Benji just loves his. He bounces on it, chews on it, hangs from it, and always sleeps on it. Most definitely it is his favorite spot to hang out.

It’s hard to find any pet peeves that Benji experiences. He is such a happy little boy that never seems bothered by anything. He loves humans, and is pretty close to becoming hand-tamed. He doesn’t mind when his cockatiel buddies are screeching and chirping, in fact, he loves to join in on the noise making. I don’t think there is much that bothers Benji, I haven’t seen anything yet that does.

“My owner is just great! And I am coming really close to letting her hold me. I think I can start trusting these humans because, after all, my owner always makes sure I have fresh food and clean water. She gives me yummy treats and sweet fruit to eat also. My cage is always clean too. So how could I not trust my new owner? She really takes care of me!!” Benji exclaimed.

Benji is a real clown, a total goof, who loves to chirp and chortle, and chatter away. His spirit is just one of those happy-go-lucky kind of sorts. He will bounce away on his perches and sing to everyone he sees. He is the very first thing I hear in the morning, as he always starts to sing at the very first hint of light in the sky. Benji loves his toys more than most birds I’ve seen. The most favorite of them being a cheap, plastic string of balls with bells inside. It cost less than $1 yet he just goes crazy with it. He pulls on it and shakes it around, jingling the bells. It gives him hours of entertainment and that’s the funny part. It just goes to show that its not the price of a toy which makes it fun. Benji ignores all of the expensive toys in lieu of his jingly balls..

“Work hard, play even harder”.
