    Choosing a Bird

    So, I've done a lot of research and a lot of digging around for which bird might be right for me. But of course, I'm always up for more advice.

    I have two budgies. I never really wanted budgies, they're cool little guys, and for many I have no doubt are great fits, but not really for me. I'm just not a little bird person... I got Daryl the budgie as a sick budgie from a local pet store. Not a good store but that's a little off topic...
